OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Updated Friday April 15, 2016 by Chandler AYF.

Chandler AYF Football & Cheer is a Non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing positive recreational and educational alternatives for the youths ages 5 to 15 in the progressive, cutting edge city of Chandler, Arizona.

Our role in this great city is to make a difference in all kid’s lives by giving back on a local level. Our mission is to provide a football and cheerleader program that influences good sportsmanship, teamwork, and the highest moral and physical standards. We emphasize the importance of scholarship and academic achievements amongst our participants.

We value all kids regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin. It takes a village to raise our children. As parents, volunteers, coaches, and family members, it’s our duty to implement good leadership, integrity, honesty, discipline, and determination among all participants. Our coaches assist all children to become productive members of society. As examples of these teachings, we will not lose sight of that. All children, no matter who they are, no matter where they come from and no matter what their social status will be treated equally. All kids who work hard, sacrifice and strive to be a better person will have the right to compete and be rewarded for such efforts. We instill the value of self-worth, self-confidence and self-reliance which are building blocks for shaping the leaders of tomorrow.

Chandler AYF will strive to be a strong leader within our community by our commitment to address the concerns facing our children and families today. Our volunteers and sponsors share the dream that every child who wants to play football or cheer has the opportunity to, despite financial constraints.

We are committed to providing a positive environment that enhances the lives of our city’s youth and enriching the community by teaching:

  • The rules and fundamentals of football and cheer
  • Skill sets that will benefit them both on and off the field
  • How to be fine, up-standing individuals
  • To respect themselves and others
  • To educate and be educated
  • Strength in the midst of conflic
  • Gentleness in the midst of resolution

Our kids will understand and embrace the philosophy that through sacrifice come great rewards. They will also realize the importance of staying away from situations that lead to bad behavior by keeping busy in a positive youth program.
