Our History


​The DeLand Dawgs have represented DeLand as a competitive youth football and cheerleading team for more than 25 years. For the past 5 years, we have been affiliated with PAL (Police Athletic League). This year, the coaches, staff, and players have decided to bring youth football and cheer back to the community. We have established DeLand Dawgs Youth Sports Inc. as a nonprofit organization and are currently fundraising to purchase all new equipment and uniforms. Our mission is to serve the community one player at a time. We serve an at risk youth population and want to keep our players and cheerleaders engaged in life building activities year round. Please support us as we attempt to enrich our community. We love our children and our city. Go Dawgs!
