The Emerald Coast Green Wave Athletic Association (ECGWAA) is dedicated to promoting the game of tackle football and cheerleading among youth ages 5 through 12 in Walton County through collaboration with families, middle school, and high school football programs. We believe that football instills important life lessons in youth and we are committed to upholding our values of Integrity, Collaboration, Care & Respect, Innovation, and Excellence through our football and cheer programs.
As a non-profit organization, we proudly participate in the Gulf Coast Youth Football Association (GCYFA) and are a member of the esteemed American Youth Football and Cheer (AYF) organization , where we prioritize both academics and athletics. Our goal at ECGWAA is to develop well-rounded youth who not only learn the fundamentals of football and cheerleading, but also understand the significance of education, good sportsmanship, honesty, courage, and respect.
To ensure the highest quality of coaching and training, we require all coaching staff to be certified by USA Football and implement the latest concepts and techniques from the NFL, NCAA and FHSAA. Our commitment to excellence is unwavering, as evidenced by our certified PrimeXample Skills Academy NWFL staff, making us the sole provider of such coaching in the area. Additionally, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our players by providing them with state-of-the-art football equipment technology.
At ECGWAA, we are passionate about promoting football and cheerleading as a means of instilling valuable life lessons and fostering personal growth.
We would like to thank you for all of your support and are grateful to have both business sponsors and individual donors that invest in our community's student athletes. Without your contributions and support, our players and their families could not enjoy the many benefits of the 2023 football and cheer season.
