The Bronx Cowboys (Also known as North Bronx Youth Sports Association, Inc.) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation. It was developed to provide youth living in the Bronx with opportunities. Bronx Cowboys programs teach the fundamentals of scholarship offering sports and offer a quality youth sports program for area children. Among our programs are the North Bronx Cowboys Youth Football and Cheerleading, the North Bronx Soccer Club, North Bronx Basketball, and North Bronx LaCrosse.
The North Bronx Cowboys Youth Football Club provides age and weight-restricted Football and Cheerleading programs for area youth. There is an age structure of 5-14 years old for football with a weight structure up to age 11 and an unlimited weight up to age 14. The program is open to all youth residing in the Bronx and New York City.
Our long-term goal is to develop an array of youth sports opportunities that will lead to a greater number of scholarships for youth in our community. The sports that we offer all provide scholarship opportunities that are being lost on the Bronx youth since they do not have exposure to these sports at a young age compared to their suburban counterparts in Westchester and Long Island, and upstate New York.
Youth in our area are also becoming afflicted with more diseases directly related to their lack of physical activity, including high blood pressure, diabetes, poor nutrition habits, obesity, and more. Our youth will learn:
*The benefits of physical fitness
*The benefits of being physically active
*learn to live a healthy lifestyle by participating in sports at a young age *Learn the benefits of staying with it throughout their lives.
These benefits will last with them for a lifetime.
