Mission: 

To develop well-rounded young kids who learn not only the fundamentals of football, but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound mind, body and character – and having a good time along the way! Our program stresses learning lessons of self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and good sportsmanship.

We will do our very best to ensure that each player is developed to his utmost potential and their talents are used for the team’s best advantage. The team comes before any individuals. Safety is our top concern. Many of the exercises, drills, and team rules are there to ensure your child is physically and mentally fit and safe for football. Each child is unique and develops at their own pace. Our goal is to develop the skills needed to execute the game of football.

Our program is run by volunteers and is managed by an elected board.

Our fees are some of the lowest in the TCYFL and we also provide much of the practice gear our players use and require very little fundraising during our season. WTYFC has grown dramatically in a short time and we are proud to boast the following accolades and benefits:

Our fees our lower than most teams in our area and in our league.

Our teams play 8 regular season games and more if they reach the playoffsFundraising is limited, we are mindful of our families time away from the field.

Our coaches all are required to obtain USA Football certification, positive coaching training and criminal background checks before being allowed to coach. Head coaches also are required to participate in additional training before the season.

We work with our area high schools to structure our program and prepare our young athletes for the high school level that is hopefully ahead of them.

In a short time, our program has sent dozens of teams to the post season playoffs with multiple Super Bowl appearances and victories.Our players keep their jerseys at the end of the season and each player has their last name proudly printed on the back. We also encourage the players to wear their jerseys to school on Friday’s during the season to show their Thunder Pride!

Below are some recent parent testimonials. Our families are usually our best source of information regarding what we are doing well on and where we can improve the program.

Q: Please provide an additional comments you have that can be used to improve the Thunder Football and Cheer experience for your child.


As a first year I don’t know if maybe I got lucky but I couldn’t have asked for a better bunch of kids or coaching staff or parents! Everything was above and beyond when it came to my son and his team. I was highly impressed!

I have never seen such a positive growth in both the players and coaches. I couldn’t ask for a better group of boys or coaches. Make me want to have my kid play for the next 3 years.

I think all the coaches did a great job this year inspiring, teaching and working together. Coach Henry always goes above and beyond with his coaches and handled himself very well with the coaches, parents and players. His philosophy was great and I believe helped the players realized how to play as a team and show accountability. The team mom was really great this year too!

I think this was one of the best seasons of football I as a parent and my son as a player had! Our record might not have showed it but the positive attitude and the teaching of the game was wonderful! Great coaches and players this season
