A group of parents and coaches gather to create the board that would become the NWI Youth Football and Cheer organization. The focus was to be on the young men and women of NW Indiana that would allow them to participate in football and cheerleading with an organization focused upon them and not on the outside adult elements of politics. The board is created and a search starts for fields and funding.
Practice fields are located for football and cheerleading. The practice fields are located at 9000 Taft Street in Merrillville, IN for the inaugural season.
