CHARLOTTE, NC — The fifth year of a program is normally their make or break year. The Providence Volunteers out of Charlotte, North Carolina look to continue their impact on the community for years to come.
They are a part of the CMYFL, powered by Football University. Founded in 2009, the Providence Volunteers organization started with the vision of two men, Terry Martin, Jr. and Biko Burt. It was their goal to create a team that would not only compete at the highest level of youth football, but also build a family atmosphere for children to learn how to develop into young adults of high character.
With strong support from our coaches and parents, the Providence Volunteers were fortunate to start it’s journey with a solid foundation. In the short history of our existence, the Volunteers have been able to field teams in four divisions of the NCYFL during their early years. This past season, the organization participated in the Greater Charlotte Youth Athletic Alliance which is a proud member of the American Youth Football League. The Volunteers participated in three divisions: Tiny (ages 7-8), Cadets (ages 8-10) and Junior Midget (ages 13 & below).
The organization currently operates a youth football team in South Charlotte which caters to children of various cultures, ethnicities, and family environments. With early success and strong support, the organization is in the midst of growing and becoming much more than football organization. With the motto “Teaching the game of football while instilling the skills for life” in mind, the time has arrived for this well-respected organization to start implementing the first evolutionary phase of their existence.
Some of their achievements include:
- 2011 NCYFL State Runner Ups
- GCYAA State Runner Ups
