We are a non Profit Organization and apart of the FYD (Foundation for Youth Development) conference in the South East Region of Pop Warner. We offer youth cheer leading for ages 5 to 14 and full contact football teams for ages 5 to 14. Our organization is made up entirely of volunteers, many of whom work year round to execute the necessary tasks in the interest of our players. All board members, parents and participants shall bear in mind that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is secondary.
The mission of the East manatee Bulldogs is to provide a FUN environment for our participants that fosters excellence in academics, while teaching the value of hard work in a team environment. With Football and Cheer as the tools, our participants become better young men and women, our parents have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and our staff accepts the challenge to improve the league each year. Our vision is to be champions in life using the value system earned as a scholar athlete as the vehicle for success in any endeavor.
At the end of the season, our players will be better tacklers, ball carriers, and team mates than they were when they started. We focus on fundamentals, the most current safety training standards, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
Our Cheerleaders are the heart and soul of the organization. They train every bit as hard as football, and their execution of routines reflect their hard work and dedication. EMB Cheer Leaders go on to lead the way at the high school levels in the area.
We are focused on several areas of our participants. We teach sportsmanship, team work, being a good member of the community, and holding our players accountable for academics.
