Four years ago I did an internet search for cheer coaching positions in the Raleigh area and I stumbled across a Pop Warner organization known as the North Raleigh Bulldogs. That fall I was fortunate enough to coach the Flag cheer squad, the same cheer squad that cheered for my son's football team. This was our family's first year as Bulldogs and this Fall will be our 4th year with this amazing association! In addition to coaching cheer for one year I have served as team parent for two years and I'm in my second year as the Cheer Commissioner. I couldn't be more proud of our organization and what we do for the boys and girls in our community who decide to be a part of our football and cheer program. With our help, these kids learn that hard work, dedication, teamwork, leadership, motivation and determination is what it takes to be a successful team and it teaches them fundamentals that they will carry with them now and forever. Without the committed coaching staff our organization is lucky enough to have, this all volunteer organization wouldn't be what it is today and I'm proud to be a parent, volunteer and board member and hope to be for many years to come!
North Raleigh Athletic Association is a football and cheerleading program that is affiliated with Pop Warner national program. I've been impressed by 3 things about NRAA "Bulldog" football. First, the level of structure provided by and demanded by Pop Warner may seem stifling but it set s level playing field for all. Second, how many volunteer hours are put in by good men and women role models. Third, my son has grown so much socially and athletically through the attention the coaches give.
We were involved with the North Raleigh Athletic Association for 2 years. It was a wonderful experience for my son. He was able to lear the funamentals of football through a well coached and a positive learning environment. The coaches were extrodinary. My son is moving on to middle school fooball. Our experience with The North Raleigh Athletic Association will be hard to compete with. Their Scholar program helped my son see the positive influence of hard work and dedication.
Our family has been involved with the North Raleigh Athletic Association for three years. The volunteer coaches teach our children many life lessons through the sports of football and cheerleading. I see personal growth in the student athletes and their families as a result of their involvement in our association. It is a great benefit to our community and I am proud to recommend this association.
