Paxton Athletic Association began in 1973 and is incorporated as a non profit organization. Paxton has grown from being a football only organization to now encompassing 4 sports (adding baseball, basketball, cheerleading) and has become a significant youth athletics organization in the Harrisburg, PA area. Paxton is driven to teach its athletes sportsmanship, scholastics, leadership, respect, dignity, integrity and personal development. These important characteristics are reinforced through our 4 sports and the leadership of their volunteers. Providing a positive athletics environment is the primary focus of Paxton Athletics. Paxton is community oriented and feels by giving back to our community by working with our youth we are helping the Harrisburg area have a bright future.
