The primary purpose of the Western Crusaders (U19) Colts Gridiron Program is to promote the physical, social, and emotional well-being of the young athletes it was created to serve. We strive to accomplish these goals by providing competitive athletic experiences that are challenging, fun and stimulating – and ones that promote positive individual and team growth within a safe, positive, respectful and healthy environment. We view our U19 Colts Gridiron Program as an important and integral part of building positive experiences in the wider community. We look to bridge gaps in our community for all participants regardless of individual differences and backgrounds. We believe that our U19 Colts Gridiron Program here at the Western Crusaders will stand and serve as a positive force in the continuing development of our young people – and for our community as a whole. We strongly feel that participation in youth sports provides the opportunity for developing lifetime skills, which help those young people involved become more well-rounded individuals. We further believe, that our Gridiron Program, as a whole, can and will serve as a positive environment for our Football Families. We encourage the involvement and interaction of these groups – and at every level of activity (on field, on the sidelines and as spectators).
