Dedicated to the development of the hearts and minds in the youth of our community.

Welcome to Lancaster Youth Football & Cheer!

Last Thursday, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) postponed the start of the fall athletic season until 9/21/2020.  As a result of this announcement the Empire West Youth Football & Cheer League (EW), that Lancaster and many surrounding towns are part of, held an emergency meeting last night 7/20.  Based on the current state of affairs, with great sadness EW has cancelled it's tackle football season and has cancelled the EW cheer competition (one of the three cheer competitions we would attend in 2020).   Flag football is NOT part of EW and more information on flag will be in the coming weeks.

*HOWEVER* your Lancaster Youth Football & Cheer Board continues to make efforts to give our players and cheerleaders something this season. 

For starts, we've teamed up with the Lancaster Football Boosters to host their youth football camp this year.  The LHS Football program and Lancaster Youth program have enjoyed a tremendous relationship for many years now.  This is a great example of the two programs working together with one cause in mind – the kids! We will continue to work together in 2020. Our kids are very fortunate to have the support of the very dedicated, very capable coaches, players and volunteers of LHS Football and the Lancaster Football Boosters.  

Our Board is working hard on developing football and cheer options that will be constructive, safe and fun this season.  We feel it is still important that the kids get an opportunity to build their skills and be a part of something that involves athleticism, teamwork and effort.  Now more than ever, our goal is to provide a rewarding experience for every participant and to do so as safely as possible within state, local, and CDC guidelines. 

Lancaster ALWAYS comes together and that doesn’t stop now. More information regarding options and refund requests will be available soon.  Please remember that our programs are run by volunteers and that our volunteers have families, jobs and struggles as they work during these challenging times as well.   

Good things to come – stay tuned for more information,
