At the February 23 City of Eden Budget Retreat, City Staff asked the Mayor and City Council to allow the Parks & Recreation Department to proceed with implementing a citywide football program. Over the past several years, the City of Eden, Eden Prowlers and Eden Boys and Girls Club have all offered youth football. The new approach will allow the City to include all participants in one program that will provide the same type of play for all the youth football players. The City of Eden and the Eden Prowlers believe placing the youth football program under one organization will continue to help build the program and continue its success in the future.
The City will participate in the Piedmont Triad Youth Football League and will be known as the City of Eden Prowlers.
The Eden Prowlers are donating their equipment and uniforms to the City at a value in excess of $29,000. Eden Parks & Recreation will be hiring a part-time employee to assist the athletic director with the administration and operations of this project.
There will be additional articles coming out in the next few months to let parents know when registration will begin and how to become a coach or volunteer. Please call the Eden Parks & Recreation Department at 336-623-2110, option 3, for more information.
