The Full Story
Carolina Pride Football Inc. (dba...Carolina Bearcats) is dedicated to reaching today’s high school youth with an opportunity to play high school sports. The organization was formed over 20+ years ago to allow home schooled and private schooled student athletes the chance to play high school sports. The primary focus of of the program was with football and Cheerleading. Our focus is to provide a Biblical based environment surrounding the sports. The coaching staff exemplifies Biblical values of Excellence, Teamwork and Discipline. They are dedicated to creating an atmosphere where athletes have the opportunity to play these sports under that leadership and helping those young student athletes grow into exemplary young adults.
We are a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that is strictly funded by player fees and outside donations. Annually we look to provide opportunities to individuals and business to help young people with financial support for our program. Those donations provide scholarships, upgraded equipment, team travel, game sponsorship, marketing and all essentials needed to operate the program such as this. Some kids are financially not able to afford to pay to participate in extra curricula sports so we attempt to offer financial hardship scholarships to those student athletes. All donations to this program are tax-deductible under Carolina Pride Football Inc.
There are tiers that you can choose to spupport:
$500 scholarship to support a youth from a financially stressed family
$1500 to sponsor a home game or road game that requires team transportation
$2500 for player equipment upgrades (helmets, pads, etc)
$5000 in new equipment each year to meet the safety requirements and concussion protocols.
If you can donate to the program, please do so by sending a check to Carolina Pride Football, Inc. to
