Welcome to the internet home of the Butler Lil’ Tornados Youth Football and Cheerleading Program.

We are excited to offer your son the opportunity to learn, practice and play the game of football, and your daughter the opportunity to learn, practice and perform athletic cheerleading on a traveling team. One of the most important aspects of their participation will be the opportunity to develop personal moral character that will promote their future success both on and off the field of play for the rest of their lives.

We have tried to provide answers to some common general questions below.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email us at your convenience.
