The Amherst Patriots Football & Cheerleading Organization is for boys and girls ages 5 to 15* residing in the towns of Amherst, Milford, Brookline, Hollis and Mont Vernon.
Our organization is committed to the principles of Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) and against a “win-at-all-cost” mentality. PCA calls a Positive Coach a “Double-Goal Coach”. A win-at-all-cost coach has only one goal – to win. A Positive Coach shares that goal (wants to win) but has a second goal that is even more important – to use the sports experience to help young people learn “life lessons” and positive character traits that will help them be successful throughout their lives.
