Howard County Warriors

Courage, Commitment, Character

About Us

Organization Summary

The Howard County Warriors athletic program is a private, non-profit 501(3)c, youth football and cheer program.  We will serve children, ages 6-14, in the Howard, Anne Arundel, Montgomery, and Prince George’s County regions. We will promote strength of character, family, honesty, openness, and inclusiveness. We will stress the complete  welfare of the athletes and their families. We will not only focus on developing strong character on the field but we will also focus on building character, dependability, scholarship, citizenship, and life skills off the field.  We will prepare our athletes to not only be competitive and successful on the field but off the field as well.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop a community that stresses character in all its’ members on the field, in the classroom, in the community, and in the home, to minister to the needs of our youth and their families, to model and instill in those (youth, parents, community members, coaches, volunteers) participating in our program strong values for the development of strong character. We will practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness. Our program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing days, such as self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and, good sportsmanship
