2021 Football Players Code of Conduct
Our program is to inspire the youth of the Bunn area to participate in Football and Cheer, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship regardless of race, color, sex, creed or national origin, and to bring them together through the means of a common physical fitness and athletic competition. We are to provide a program where they receive instruction in the fundamental skills of football and Cheer. The mission is to enable children to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, we will teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that children will use throughout their lives.
