Welcome to Pasadena Giants Youth Football And Cheer!! We are excited that your athlete is interested in joining The Pasadena Giants Family. Our staff of volunteers will try our best to provide your family with any information and support needed throughout our season and beyond. Whether your athlete has been playing a few years or they’re a 1st time player, we hope that your athlete enjoys their experience with our organization.
The Pasadena Giants is a non-profit, all volunteer Youth Football and Cheer organization dedicated to providing a safe environment for children (ages 5-14) to participate in the sport of football and cheer while also giving kids the opportunity to thrive within a positive team. Our goal is to build character, instill discipline, teamwork, goal setting, integrity and personal sacrifice that is not only essential to the sport, yet to the everyday world. The program has served in the community by keeping young athletes from marginalized communities off the streets and providing them with a program of structure and discipline while also teaching teamwork, sportsmanship, and accountability along the way. Our organization provides kids with the ability to express themselves through athletics in a community where many youth can be consumed by the environment created by poverty. By participating in the program, many of our youth have gone on to be successful as high school student/athletes and college student/athletes as well.

Q: What is included with registration??
A). There is significantly more participation time and equipment provided for use to the participant in football compared to most other recreational sports. Our volunteer staff supervises our athletes for hundreds of hours throughout the duration of a season. Your registration fees contribute to the following costs: Fees for permits and use of our field, for games, field lights, uniforms, conference fees, player fees, football insurance, any potential fines, football accessories, concessions purchases, website, cheer competition, cheer camps, equipment reconditioning, practice equipment, referee fees for games, new equipment purchases, equipment reconditioning, etc....
Q: How much volunteer time is expected from parents??
A). Parents are expected to volunteer for game day activities during our Pasadena Giants season, including playoff games, championship games, bowl games and cheer competitions. Each family is required to provide a minimum of 4 volunteer hours. Opportunities include (but are not limited to), assisting during game day (field security, gate entrance monitor(s), chain gang during games, field set up/take down, score board keeper, snack bar duty, and other team specific duties). Failure to volunteer can result in a fee to be paid! More information in regards to parent volunteer hours will be available throughout our season. Thank you in advance!!
Q: Will there be fundraisers this season??
A). Yes!! Staff will notify parents when any fundraising opportunities present themselves so everyone can participate. If a family DOES NOT participate in our Mandatory Fundraiser, they will be required to submit a $100 payment to substitute for their athlete not participating in our fundraiser. Fundraisers are very necessary and essential to our organization!! Don't be surprised if or when action is taken in response to non participation with the mandatory fundraiser!! Without the fundraising help, we would be at a great disadvantage and money to help the program would be lost with every athlete that registers with The Pasadena Giants Youth Football & Cheer organization.
