Give our youth kids something positive to do.
Organized by: Wynzell Lynn
The Bakersfield Southwest Panthers is a youth football team trying to make a difference in our youth kids lives by giving them something positive to do instead of being in the streets. Let's face it with all of the violence that's happening all across the world we have to take back our streets and it starts with our youth so we have started a nonprofit youth football team with some of our own personal money, but it's pretty expensive with equipment, insurance, uniforms etc. The good thing about our team is we're year-round and we don't make cuts because we would rather have you at practice and playing in football games on the weekends then to be on the streets in harms way. Most youth football/ cheer programs ask for $400 to $500 dollars to play/cheer we only ask for $150 because we understand the financial crisis with lots of job losses in our economy/ community and it's still tough for some to come up with the $150 that's why we started our gofundme account because we don't want to turn any kid away regardless of talent or not being financial stable to pay we have to stand in the gap for these kids.
