About Us

The Plymouth-Canton Steelers Youth Football and Cheerleading program was established in 1977 and continues to offer a competitive arena to young football players and cheerleaders from the Plymouth-Canton area and surrounding cities.  Our mission is to inspire and promote character, discipline, leadership, and teamwork in all our athletes so that they become outstanding citizens of the community.

 

We are part of the Michigan Youth Football and Cheer Conference (MYFCC) and are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is governed by parents and families who are committed to creating a safe and positive experience for our athletes.  Our program is designed to prepare young athletes for the high school level by providing age appropriate training that will aid in the development of their football and cheerleading skills.

 

Our well-qualified coaching staff includes veterans and parents of the program with years of football or cheerleading experience at the high school and/or collegiate levels. Every year, our athletes compete for a championship title.  Our football teams compete in the MYFCC Super Bowl Championship and our cheerleaders compete in the MYFCC Super Cheer Competition. The Plymouth-Canton Steelers have consecutively brought home trophies and medals from both events, instilling great pride in our Steelers community.
