Welcome to the Nazareth Clippers Youth Football Program!

With over 55 years of tradition, we are the longest running youth sports program in Nazareth. Our football program offers teams for Flags, Junior Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Junior Varsity, and Varsity levels. The Flag and Junior Pee Wee levels are instructional and are primarily focused on kids learning the game. There are no post-season games. The Pee Wee, Junior Varsity, and Varsity levels are considered competitive levels. While we are still focused on teaching the game of football, these levels offer post-season playoffs and name a champion.

One of the main goals of our program is to prepare our players for the next level of competition as they move up to playing for our Nazareth Middle School football program. 

We play in the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Football League (EPYFL) and our home games are played on Saturdays at Lower Nazareth Township Park. 

Registration for Fall 2024 (opens 4/1/24):

Registration payment is due immediately upon registering your child(ren). Registration is $65 for flags and $110 for all other levels. There is also a mandatory $50 fundraising fee. In addition, we offer a program called Little Gridders for 4 & 5 year-olds ($40 registration fee and no work bond). The remainder of your payment (equipment/work bond or buyout) will not be due until equipment handouts -- estimated to be in July. Your refundable equipment/work bond is $100 for one child or $150 for a family. There is a buyout option of $150 if you do not wish to volunteer.
