About the Emerald Coast Green Wave

Welcome to the Emerald Coast Green Wave, South Walton's premier youth football and cheer organization. Established in 2022 to provide a more robust youth football and cheer community in our area, we're proud to be entering our 3rd season and continuing to grow, providing more student-athletes with the opportunity to participate in fall football and cheer programs.

Our mission is simple: to promote the game of tackle football and cheer in Walton County through collaboration with our families, as well as our middle school and high school football programs. 

What Sets Us Apart

At the Emerald Coast Green Wave, we're committed to excellence in everything we do. Our dedicated staff, comprised of the only PrimeXample Elite Skills Academy certified coaches in the area, ensures that our athletes receive top-tier training and mentorship.

But what truly makes us stand out are our core values: Integrity, Collaboration, Care & Respect, Innovation, and Excellence. These values guide every aspect of our organization, from our operations to our interactions with our athletes and families.

Transparency and accountability are at the heart of our organization. We believe in open communication and actively encourage parent involvement. Every parent has a voice, and we value their feedback as we strive for continuous improvement.

Preparing for Success

We're more than just a youth sports program—we're a pathway to success. Our close collaboration with local middle school and high school programs ensures that our players are well-prepared to compete at the next level. By providing our high schools with the best football players we can, we contribute to the success of our community's athletic programs.
