The Junior Riverhawks youth football & cheer organization is an instructional focused tackle & cheer program for boys and girls aged 5 – 14 who reside in Pasco, WA area and surrounding communities. Our mission is to teach kids the fundamentals of football and cheer and teach the value of sportsmanship, teamwork, and promote self-esteem and confidence in all players.
