NCAAU TACKLE FOOTBALL is excited to introduce Jermaine Smith as the new Regional Director for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Region. Jermaine is the President of the Southern Football Conference and will be instrumental in overseeing the growth in the Charlotte-Meckelenburg Region.
Jermaine has a wealth of experience working with youth and athletics. He is the Founder/CEO of TAPS Inc., a non-profit organization in Charlotte, NC serving at-risk youth. Jermaine spent seven years from 1996 - 2002 as a player in the NFL, CFL and Arena Football Leagues. He has also served as an Assistant Coach in the High School rankings and a Head Coach on the Middle School level. Jermaine's goal is to prepare athletes for life beyond the playing fields.
Football requires a lot of practice time. It also requires a commitment to physical fitness, skill development, learning plays and game planning. Youth football will also help a child develop positive work ethic. Developing a strong work ethic will better enable children to achieve their goals later in life.
Football is a competitive sport. Playing youth football will encourage competitiveness in other areas of life. Players will have to compete in practice for playing time. Players will compete against other teams on game day. To be successful in life you need to be competitive. Being non-competitive often leads to underachievement, therefore football is good training for later in life..
