It is the intent and purpose to instill in the players, parents, coaches and directors the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect. The Association is determined to teach poise and character to all those involved as it relates to activities occurring on or off the field of play, and to build healthier bodies and stronger minds of our youth, at the same time teaching them about fair play and sportsmanship. The purpose, for which this Association has been formed, is to develop and promote community interest in the sport of football; to provide opportunities for participation in organized football to all children, and to provide training in football fundamentals.
Additionally, it is the intent of the Association to prepare its players to be ready to play football for Mount Olive High School.
