West Seattle Junior Football & Cheer started in 2007 with a handful of volunteers committed to developing an inclusive football program for the youth in West Seattle.
We are still a 100 percent volunteer organization. There are no paid positions.
Thank you to everyone who has volunteered as our coaches, team parents, chain-team, clock keepers, concessions help, and board members. Every hand helps.
