The Fort Erie Longhorns is a great program for kids in our community that teaches team work and responsibility in a fun atmosphere.
We welcome boys and girls in Fort Erie to come play for the Fort Erie Longhorns in a great football organization, the Niagara Regional Minor Football Association that consists of teams around the Niagara region from Smithville to Fort Erie.
The Fort Erie Longhorns is a youth football team that has taught the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play to children between the ages of eight and 14 for many years. This season we are also proud to say we have expanded our teams to include ages up to 17 in our varsity level football.
We promote physical, mental, and moral development by providing a program that teaches our children the proper techniques to safely excel at football. We never stress the final score of the game, rather we emphasize fun, teamwork, and most importantly, good sportsmanship.
We instruct our players to always respect their opponents, their teammates, their coaches and the great game of football. Lifelong memories will be taken away from youth football when everyone chips in to make the experience unforgettable for our children.
Fun is always the most important thing to have while playing. Every player plays every game in the Niagara Regional Minor Football Association.
The season starts May 23 and practices will be held during the week and games played on Saturdays. If you have a child between the ages of 8 and 17 and want to join our football family please contact us to register now.
