Mission Statement

Our program is designed to teach the basic fundamentals of football and cheer. For over 50 years the Thunderbirds have offered the youth our community a program that teaches team work, leadership, individual responsibility, discipline, respect of others and self-esteem. While acquiring football and cheerleading skills is important, the Thunderbird program also emphasizes scholastic achievement, good sportsmanship and citizenship. All participants must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 G.P.A through out the season, and those scholar athletes attaining a 3.3 G.P.A. or above are awarded a scholar-athlete patch. Our program provides a venue to over 200 participants each year, keeping our youth off the streets and involved in a community organization. Approximately 75% of our youth come from moderate to low income families and struggle financially to keep their children involved in programs such as our. The Thunderbird organization consists of over 20 adult volunteers each season who dedicate their time for our youth. Our volunteers consist of coaches, snack bar helpers to board members. In addition former players and cheerleaders come back to our program to volunteer their time and become mentors/coaches to our youths.
