Greene County Park and Recreation
Youth Football - Greene County Panthers
Greene County Park and Recreation has paired with Greene County Housing Authority under the WAYFA (the West Alabama Youth Football Association).
September 13, 2008
The Panthers play teams from Homewood, to Bibb County to Demopolis, to Greensboro.
Frank Smith and Anita Lewis both feel that the youth benefit not only from playing the various sports, but also from being exposed to the many opportunities and various learning experiences that they get from traveling to the various areas to play.
It is emphasized that the programs are for all the youth of Greene County, not just youth living in the Greene County Housing Authority.
Future plans for the partnership include both motivational programs and drug prevention programs as well as after school tutorials to help the youth make the most out of their school opportunities.
