Our Coaching Philosophy


Ballston Spa Board Members and Coaches adhere to the following coaching philosophy:


  • Keep focused on our main objective: To provide our children with a positive experience in football.
  • Teach through positive reinforcement.
  • Encourage that through hard work and the desire of not giving up, anything can be achieved.
  • Motivate and challenge all of the children on a team.
  • Involve parents of the children as much as possible.
  • Teach football fundamentals through the Ballston Spa systems to enable a good foundation for future years.
  • Be competitive but fair, be aggressive but respectful, be tough but compassionate and maintain balance in your coaching.
  • Win or lose, keep it fun and help explain the lessons along the way

Assisting through Sponsorship

Dear Friends & Business Owners,

Our kids are counting on you to sponsor the Ballston Spa Football & Cheer Program. Each year our expenses continue to increase. Your donation is used to defray expenses such as purchasing football uniforms and cheerleading outfits, football equipment, insurance, field usage, referee fees and most important scholarships for those that cannot afford the costs. It has been said that any child participating in football or cheer will never regret the experience. Football has been called the ultimate sport because it teaches the valuable lessons in team work and all levels of leadership. This level of teaching and coaching is going on nights starting in August on the practice field at the Ballston Spa Middle School. We invite you to come down and watch.
