FOOTBALL The Bradley/Cleveland Youth football program is a great example of public private partnerships. Santek Environmental, City of Cleveland, and Bradley County have joined together to support youth football in our community.
Santek Environmental has been a major corporate sponsor for the past four years. Without their generous contributions the program would not exist.
The City of Cleveland Parks & Recreation Department provides financial assistance and maintenance support at the Arnold Stadium.
The league presently has fourteen teams with almost 300 participants. The league is divided into three age groups, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12 year old. Games are typically held at the football stadiums at Arnold Elementary and Charleston Elementary. Each team usually plays an 8 game schedule. Most games are held during the week. Some special events take place on weekends. Football season usually begins the second week in August and will end the middle of October. The league will provide the helmet shoulder pads, and jersey for every participant. Parents are responsible for pants, pads and cleats.
