Our Mission for the Youth Football Program

The Westport PAL Football mission is to create and administer a program that provides opportunities for Westport youth to learn and
play football in an age-appropriate, fun, and safe environment. Our primary goal is to cultivate a love for football,
in every participant, with a focus on preparing the youth athlete to play and be successful at the next level.

Our prevailing philosophy is based on a belief in the guiding principles to prioritize broad skill and multi-sport athletic development, teamwork, and sportsmanship over winning.  The program's philosophy will establish, guide, and support a culture in which ALL coaches accept the program's mission and a resolute commitment to reinforcing its goals.  All Board members, coaches, and program volunteers serve as role models and accept responsibility for creating an environment that emphasizes teaching the core values of hard work, respect, inclusion, commitment, perseverance, responsibility and accountability, family, and community.
