Spartanburg - Always doing.

The City of Spartanburg youth sports programs exist to help children in the development of positive life skills and self-concepts. Our mission is to provide safe, enjoyable recreation opportunities for all participants.

It is our mission to teach the basic skills and fundamentals of the sport, which young people need to be able to play in a safe and nurturing environment, where all children will have the opportunity to play regardless of skill level.

Finally, it is our mission to ensure that each child has a positive, rewarding experience while participating in the programs, and that each child will learn the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork, honor, and integrity while sharing with their coaches and teammates the emotions of success and failure.

 

Youth Football

The City of Spartanburg and District Seven are committed to providing a safe and fun environment for youth sports.  We strive to make sure all kids are treated equally regardless of their skill set so that each of them feel appreciated and part of the team.  Our focus is on demonstrating how to live and play the game the right way while ensuring players are prepared for the next stage. To that end, the Viking youth football program will focus on teaching youth proper football fundamentals, including proper blocking and tackling techniques.
