Prepare to be a
NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL BUFFALO
by starting as a GNMFA BUFFALO
The Greenwood Newport Midget Football Association (GNMFA) is gearing up for their 14th season. The 2018 season runs from August through October. We offer kids starting kindergarten in the fall of 2018 through 13 years of age as of April 30th in the school districts of Millerstown and Newport and other open areas, the opportunity to actively participate in the sports of football and cheerleading. This is an excellent program offering to teach kids not only technique skills in football and cheerleading, but to promote a spirit of social interaction, trust, respect for others, leadership and coping skills, all of which form the foundation of character building. Sports have also been shown to improve academic and occupational outcomes, lower school dropouts and deter delinquency. Sports develop the mind/body connection by strengthening the body and training the mind to use it for action and reaction. GNMFA offers positive, effective coaching which hand-in hand with parenting contributes in a big way to kids’ motivation and success. Making sports fun with measurable outcomes, like skill development, builds toward success.

The Greenwood Newport Midget Football Association (GNMFA) will provide the children of Greenwood and Newport school districts an opportunity to participate in cheer leading and play competitive football in a safe, structured, enjoyable environment. We will teach discipline, responsibility, perseverance, teamwork and sportsmanship knowing that lessons learned through youth sports will further benefit players in their everyday lives. We recognize that children learn best by example and will actively encourage all board members, coaches, parents and fans to model these core values.
The battles we go through in life,
We ask for a chance that’s fair.
A chance to equal our stride,
A chance to do or dare.
If we should win,
let it be by the code,
Faith and Honor held high.
If we should lose,
we’ll stand by the road,
And cheer as the winners go by.
Day by Day,
we get better and better!
Til’ we can’t be beat…
WE WON’T BE BEAT!!!
