New Milford Green Wave Youth Football and Cheerleading, formerly known as the New Milford Saints, is planning its third season.

"Since the program began in January 2012, many local area children have registered to play tackle football and competitive cheerleading," said Green Wave's Don Stedman. "We are proud of the large group of adults who have volunteered as coaches and volunteers."

"Through American Youth Football and Cheer's (AYF) grade-based, all- inclusive system we have ensured every child wanting to play would have the opportunity to play," he added.
