Downtown Ministries Football

In 2023, Downtown Ministries made the strategic decision to combine the youth football program with Athens-Clarke County’s newly established Athens Youth Football League. Combining forces with a program that feeds into local middle and high school programs has given us a unique opportunity to invest in the community and help our Falcons build long-lasting relationships with their future classmates and coaches at the middle and high school levels. 

Gladiator and Jaguar Youth Football is available for ages 6-13 and these teams compete in the North Georgia Youth Football Association. Home games are played in Clarke Central’s Billy Henderson Stadium and Cedar Shoals’ Waters-Wilkins Stadium.
