Welcome to Pittsford Jr Panthers Football & Cheer Organization! Our goal for the program is to create an environment where our youth athletes learn the ideals of leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship in a fun and inclusive environment. To that end, our organization is committed to the following standards:
Become Part of the Panther Pride
Pittsford Panthers Jr Football & Cheer is now part of the Rochester Youth Football and Cheer Organization
SUPPORT THE PRIDE
As a volunteer-led organization, the Pittsford Jr Panthers depends entirely on the support and generosity of the community. While registration fees cover a large part of our season funding, we rely heavily on the support of community donors. Updated state-of-the-art equipment, uniforms, and the end of year banquet are some of the additional funds we need to round out our season. And that’s where we need community involvement. Please consider one of these sponsorship opportunities to make our season a success—both on and off the field.
THANK YOU TO OUR 2022 Sponsors
SUPPORT THE PRIDE
