The Carolina Pride is a tackle football team based out of Charlotte, NC
and is a member of the Coastal Athletic Conference.
All Home Games are played at Weddington Optimist Park.
If you are between the ages of 14 and 18, want to play tackle football in a Christian environment, then The Carolina Pride Football and Cheerleading programs are for you.
- Varsity Tackle Football - Junior Varsity Tackle Football - Cheerleading
A player cannot be 19 years of age on or before August 31st and cannot be a high school graduate and enrolled in college.
We play other independent teams like ours as well as other teams from the Charlotte area, including Charlotte Latin, Charlotte Christian, Providence Day. Toward the end of the season we also play our rivals the Sandhill Titans in a specially designated championship type bowl game.
We are dedicated to reaching today’s High School youth. The teams were formed primarily for homeschool, private school and public school students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to play or participate in the sport of football.
The primary focus of the Pride Football Program is teaching biblical principles in an environment that instills the Christian values of Excellence, Teamwork, and Discipline. The culture today is counter-productive in developing men and women of strong faith. Our dedicated team of coaches is devoted to creating an atmosphere where athletes have the opportunity to play football and interact with people in the world without sacrificing their Christian values. For that reason and because we are a ministry, we do allow players that are getting a public school education to participate.
The Pride is beginning its 12th year and we are proud to announce the hiring of a new head coach. Mike Hawks will be bringing his 25+ years experience to the team. He has most recently served on the coaching staff at Charlotte Latin. He has assembled a good new coaching staff for our varsity team and another great staff at the Junior Varsity level.
