Please welcome the Richmond Lions to E2E! #Welcome2Excellence #E2E
The Richmond Lions Football Program was established as a part of the AAU organization in 2012, where we started with a 10u and 12u team. In 2012 our 12u team made it all the way to Nationals in Orlando, FL. This was such a great experience for the team, especially considering most of them had never been outside the City of Richmond before. It was such joy to see how grateful the players were and also for them to know they could accomplish this as a team. After the 2013 season we fell short due to some difficulties, so we had to take some time off from the program to come back better. Its now 2016 and The Richmond Lions Football Program is back, and here to stay!
Our goal is to help inner-city youth coming from low income families, youth with a passion for football, youth that want to learn good sportsmanship, youth that are looking to build friendships, and youth that want to do positive things reach their goals. This program allows football to be that positive outlet so the youth do not have to be influenced to do negative things, which we all know is so easy to come by within our communities. This organization is guided by volunteers and our goal is to let our youth know we care about their future and their success. As an organization, we also check on our youth’s progress at school to make sure their academics are always a priority and to let them know you have to work hard for what you want because nothing comes easy. Our Motto is “One Team One Mission” we try to hold on to that tight. This is what Richmond Lions are about!!
