Westbury has long awaited a little league football team with the drive, energy and determination of the Westbury Wolverines! And this team doesn’t stop at football! The cheerleading and dance squads, often referred to as the Westbury Wolverettes, compete alongside their football player counterparts.
The Westbury Wolverines team is spearheaded by owner Andrew Stewart, who was determined to bring more community spirit back to Westbury through his love of the game – a contact sport comprised of players, cheerleaders and dancers from New Cassel, Westbury, Old Westbury and East Meadow.
Partnering with his wife and cheerleading/dance coach Melissa, the Westbury Wolverines football, cheerleading and dance teams have, so far this season, made their mark defeating their competition and not letting any team score against them.
Parents and team members are like one big happy family and parents assist in every way to keep up with the team’s “mano a mano” power against power riveting spirit!
“That’s why we’re 4-0,” said one parent. “We’re all one dedicated team.”
The Westbury Wolverines, Inc. was incorporated on May 1, 2009 and belongs to the American Youth Football League for the benefit of community spirit, health awareness, body fitness/ training and competitive play. Melissa and Andrew Stewart welcome all newcomers to sign up for the 2010-2011 season. They promise yearlong education, play and fun through football, cheerleading and dance.
