Welcome to the Niagara Orleans Football Association (NOFA) website.

NOFA has a full contact Football Program that is Age Based with ages ranging from 6 – 13 based on a 12/1 birthdate. We have Four Divisions – 6 – 7 years old are Beginners, 8 -9 years old are Mini’s, 10 – 11 years old are JV, and 12 – 13 years old are Varsity.
This association is designed primarily to encourage athletic endeavors. And to promote the physical, mental and moral development of children by providing the means through which the individual child shall receive education and instruction in football and cheerleading. The purpose of setting up such a program will be to develop a spirit of fair play, honest and fair competition and a sense of true sportsmanship, with no discrimination toward race, color or creed. NOFA supports the principle of football and cheerleading for every interested and eligible child. NOFA does not advocate tryouts with the idea of only offering football or cheerleading to only the best and most talented children in the community. NOFA encourages its membership to continually strive to increase leadership and finances of the organization so that every eligible child who wants to participate in the program may do so.
