YOUTH FOOTBALL PROGRAM
The Bradenton Gladiators Football, Inc. is a Federal Non-profit 501(c) 3 Organization whose mission is to bridge the gap between youth and young adulthood by instructing and playing top quality football and positively developing neighborhoods and communities. Additionally the organization promotes the development of leadership, character, sportsmanship, tolerance, discipline, and athletic ability. The Gladiators nurture fitness, volunteerism, and a lifelong love of sports in the community.
In 2012, the Bradenton Gladiators announced the creation of its youth football program the "Junior Gladiators". The inaugural 2012 season included a Flag Football Team for players ages 5-7. Future teams and ages will be added as the players proceed to the next level.
The Bradenton Gladiators saw a need in the community to develop a youth program that focuses on teaching proper football fundamentals and techniques. The goal was to create a football system which encourages players to develop new skills, self-confidence, coordination and game play. The system would introduce the concept of sportsmanship and teach the importance of education and fitness. As each player progresses in this program, they will have the ability to apply what have they learned both on and off the field.
