Football Families:

After multiple years, and countless hours, we finally have an announcement that many of us have wished for and anticipated for a long time: Oak Ridge Colts Football and Northwest Guilford Youth Football Association are merging! This is the most exciting news to come to our area in regards to youth football in a long time. We will be making a press announcement shortly via the Northwest Observer so that everyone in the community knows there is finally one football organization to support in Northwest Guilford County.

 

Upon listening to our parents in both organizations, we feel we have finally blended the perfect world for our community. We are able to leverage the resources and facilities of Oak Ridge Youth Association, while matching the superb organization and league structure at Northwest Guilford Youth Football Association. The merged organization will be playing under the Northwest brand in the Piedmont Triad Youth Football League (http://www.ptyouthfootball.org/ ). For the former Oak Ridge Colts families, you will find this league matches our community closer than any other league, and allows all kids from ages 4-12 to compete. As to former Northwest Guilford Youth Football parents, you will have dedicated practice facilities with lighting and access to premium football equipment. We know there will be multiple questions asked by many of you out there, and we can assure you that more details will come. As of today, for all those who have signed up, there is nothing further for you to do as we will handle the transition. At the bottom of this email you will find contact information for any questions you may have.

 

It has been a long time since we have had this type of news to announce in our area, and we are all truly excited about this merger taking place. Seeing around two hundred kids all wearing the same jerseys and playing football in the same location is going to be truly exciting for our area. In approximately sixty days we will all be under one banner, and growing football for the Northwest Guilford County community and surrounding areas.
