The Cleveland Panther Difference

Greater Cleveland Football Association's vision is to be the coveted youth football program in the Greater Cleveland area of Garner and Clayton North Carolina while providing a high level of skilled instruction giving our players the skills to succeed at the Middle and High School levels. GCFA strongly believes that the East Wake Football League provides the best possible format for us to accomplish this vision. Following are some of the many ways that separate us from other youth football organizations.

GCFA/East Wake Football League

  • Guaranteed 8 regular season home games, 4 home & 4 away. Cancelled games are always rescheduled.
  • Each organization only has 3 teams, divided strictly by age. 6-8 year old team, 9-10 year old team, 11-12 year old team. Having only 1 team for each age group keeps all the player and coaching talent together.
  • Local playoffs with no expensive travel requirements. All 3 teams compete in their age group divisions in the regular season for the opportunity to make the playoffs and compete for the East Wake Football League Super Bowl trophy.
  • All 3 teams play the same schedule, this means we stay together as an organization on game days. This keeps families with players on different aged teams together on game days and not having to decide which game to attend.
  • EWFL allows for teams to hold 20 hours of off season practice time.  We conduct 10 team practices in the month of June which better prepares the athlete for the fall tackle season.
  • Every player gets a personalized game jersey that is theirs to keep.
  • We charge a flat registration fee of $190, there is no required fundraising.
