ABOUT THE SPRING HILL COYOTES
Welcome to the Home of the Spring Hill Coyotes Youth Football and Cheerleading Program
Founded in 2010, the Spring Hill Coyotes offers a youth football and cheerleading program for children ages 4-14, who reside in and around Williamson and Maury Counties in Middle Tennessee. Every child with the desire to participate will get the opportunity to play, without regard to prior experience, athletic ability, size or financial commitment. All members and coaches of the Coyotes Program shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skills or the winning of a game is secondary, and the molding and mentoring of future citizens is of primary importance.
The Spring Hill Coyotes Youth Football and Cheerleading program is a non-profit community organization with 501(c)(3) status whose mission is to provide an atmosphere for positivity, teamwork and sportsmanship while developing essential skills and knowledge that our youth will continue to use throughout their lives.
Our mission also includes:
• Bringing our youth closer together through common interest in sportsmanship and competition
• Acquaint the players with the rules and fundamentals of the sport
• Teach sportsmanship, build character and discipline
• Encourage the players to maintain satisfactory grades in school
• Emphasize the importance of keeping a proper balance between scholastic and athletic endeavors
• To promote the physical and emotional well being of young athletes
• Establish an understanding of the commitment necessary to enhance success, both on and off the field
• To promote improved community relations by demonstrating an interest in the youth of our community
The community benefit of youth sports is hard to measure at the individual program level but it has been researched that young people engaged in sports are more likely to be positively engaged in school, and more likely to resist many risk behaviors. There is some research evidence that former athletes are more likely to engage in things like voluntarism and voting when they reach adulthood. There is also practical evidence that sports bring communities together as people convene to watch sporting events and do the myriad things it takes to support youth sports programs. Taken together, all of these factors argue for the community benefit of youth sports.
