Our youth program is geared towards teaching the fundamentals of football as well as provided athletic training specifically designed for youth athletes.

County Sports offers the following programs

The NFL Flag Football League - This league is focused on allowing players to enjoy the sport of football while learning the elements of the game. Games are played at night on Saturdays with music, food and a fun atmosphere. Registrations fees are $150 and include an official NFL jersey and Flag belts. Practices are conducted once per week for each team and there is an additional voluntary skills practice once per week as well. 

Tackle Football Camps - June - July

Summer Recreational Program June - July - August

County Sports will be offering a brand new recreational program to keep kids active this summer. Camp participants will have a daily exercise routine that will keep them moving during the summer. The majority of the camp will be fun games of kickball, soccer, whiffle ball and assorted activities provided by the camp counselors. The camp will run from 8:30 - 12:00 each day during the summer break. Stay Tuned for more information in March.

Tackle Football:
8 Year Olds - 12 Year Olds
County Sports will be joining Pop Warner football in 2019 and is in discussions with Porter Ridge Athletic Association to merge our resources for tackle football this fall. This move would allow us to create teams that would be more competitive as well as staying local for our games on Saturdays. Stay tuned for an announcement this spring.

Wall of Honor

Parents you have the great opportunity to support your Piedmont Youth Football program and leave an everlasting memory for your child.
The Piedmont Youth Football program has set up a Player of Honor Wall which will be located near the entrance to the new football stadium. There you will see the names of kids that have played in our program throughout the years. These names will stay on this wall for life. To participate in this sponsorship program, a $ 100 donation made out to Piedmont Youth Football will get your child's name placed on this wall. The Player of Honor Wall will be one where these kids can come back in years to come and see their names and remember the great times they had while playing in the Piedmont Youth Football Program.

If you are interested in having your child's name added to this wall, please feel free to contact Erik Saunders 704-989-4273
