About the Norchester Red Knights


The Norchester Red Knights (NRK) youth organization has been providing a fun, safe football and cheerleading experience to children ages 5 to 15 in the our area since the Fall of 1960.

Our club provides athletic opportunities for beginners to experienced players. We currently serve over 160 children in Northern Chester County.

We are an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that draws many youth, regardless of financial condition, because of the quality of our program and the overall athletic experience we promote.

The Norchester Red Knights organization is based in the Owen J. Roberts School District, and we are the feeder program for the Owen J. Roberts High School football and cheerleading programs.

Our programs are open to anyone in and around our district, including OJR students, students from other public or private schools and home-schooled students.

Norchester Red Knights is a proud member of the Bert Bell Memorial Football Conference.

The Norchester Red Knights Football program is rich in tradition and history. For over 50 years, we have provided fundamental instruction in the game of football to thousands of youth. This is accomplished through an emphasis on sportsmanship, team play, self-discipline, maximum effort, integrity and maximum participation.

Norchester Red Knights Cheerleading has rapidly grown into an award-winning program with lots of spirit! We bring enthusiasm and skill to cheer on our players at all football games. This past year at the 2014 Bert Bell Cheer Competition, our competitive squads had fantastic performances and proudly brought home trophies!

Year after year, the success of our program is driven by the high level of commitment and support provided by our coaches, players, parents, volunteers and the community.
