Empire West Youth Football and Cheerleading...

Proud to be a Heads Up Football League


     Empire West Youth Football and Cheerleading, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization administered by volunteers from within our membership. Our organizations have been involved in youth football and cheerleading for decades, they decided in 2006 it was time to form a league dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of both sports, along with valuable life skills to our youth participants. Our League is focused on teaching, sportsmanship, team building and player participation.

     Empire West is at the forefront of area youth sports organizations through various partnerships. The League requires all coaches to hold youth coaching certifications through the National Alliance for Youth Sports and USA Football. All coaches participating in Empire are required to pass criminal back ground checks before they take the field to coach our youth. Concerned about our participants’ safety, with the cooperation of local medical facilities, EWYFC had developed a league wide concussion awareness program, teaching coaches, parents and players concussion warning signs and developing appropriate protocols. The League is also an active participant in teaching safe tackling techniques through our involvement in the NFL’s “Heads Up Football” program.

     Empire West Youth Football and Cheerleading takes our responsibility seriously in providing a safe participation environment for our youth members, parents and volunteers. We recognize the privilege parents have granted the League and our members by entrusting their children to us as they learn the sports of football and cheerleading.
