Last last offical home game of the season is always bitterswert as its always the night we say "Goodbye" to the Seniors. They come to us at 5 years old, or somewhere in between, or maybe even this year.... but one thing remains the same for them all, they leave us a Bandit for life. We know you all will do great things in High School and we will always be your biggest fans

On October 2nd, the Bandits welcomed Cape Youth to the field to celebrate Homecoming!! All levels played amazing, but the 8U and 6U teams deserved all the coverage this weekend. 8U pulled off a win in overtime to beat Cape Youth 12-6 in a Kansas City Tie-Breaker. They couldn't have done it without the help of Mitey of Cheer, who likely have no voice after cheering yesterday.

Due to some heavy rains, Venice was unable to host our game with them on September 25th, so in true Bandit fashion we pulled together and welcomed another home game. Our parents are rock stars for volunterring yet another week at home. Extra thanks goes out to Marcos Pizza for providing pizza for us all day to help in the concession. Our grill guys appreciated the "little" break in lots of grilling!!

The BANDIT Cheerleders are making their mark at a Publix near you!!
Every October we pink out in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, but today the Bandits did it in May to show love and support for one of our own. One that is near and dear to hearts, One that for the past 10 years has held us all together behind the scenes. Today our boys wore Pink for Miss Annette.
The rivalry between Port Charlotte and Charlotte is one of the most anticipated weekends for all Charlotte County football fans.
North of the Bridge we call ourselves Bandits, South of the Bridge are known as Warriors. The Bandits vs Warrior game has been missing from our schedule for the past year, as the Warriors relented and went back to traditional (weight based football) for the 2020 season.
The indoctrination begins now. This is the biggest game...players will proudly don their Bandit apparel all week at school. The snap chats will start flying around between players. To most of our boys this game is bigger than any championship. The coaches will be a little more on edge, our boys and girls will show up to practice with a little more pep in their cleats.
Some will say its just spring and this game doesn't matter, it always matters when Red & Black meets Blue & Gold.
ITS RIVALRY WEEK Y'ALL
On Saturday April 10th, the Bandits took a trip down south and faced off against the Naples Bears. Even though we played on what felt like the surface of the sun, The Bandits donimated at every level! Bandit Nation was in full force down in Naples and the seaon is officially off to a great start!!
On Saturday March 27, 2021, the 8U Bandits took the field in a pick up game against the North Port Mustangs. The Bandits prevailed 26-0 led by a strong offensive line and touchdowns from Ben G. and DaDa. The defense played shutout football with strong performances from Guy S., and Levi.
We look forward to a great Spring Season!!
Spring Season 2021
On March 2nd, our littlest Bandits began the day full of excitement and anticipation. They woke up telling their parents "I get to be a REAL FOOTBALL PLAYER". But then it came time to put their equipment on and it quickly moved to tears and little bit of fear. Helmets are heavy and the pads are awkward. Last night our 14U boys made it a little less scary and helped our 6U get through their very first lap as football players. In that moment the helmet didn't hurt and the pads weren't so heavy as they took that lap with the boys they look up to.
