Little Panthers Game of the Week

The Little Panthers Game of the Week is a seasonal television series that gives youth football teams and cheer squads the thrill of playing in a televised game complete with play-by-play, commentary, sideline interviews and more. The NFL Youth Football Fund, Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department and University of North Carolina-Charlotte Television are team partners for this benchmark program.

Sir Purr Bowl

Two youth football teams participate in a pregame exhibition during a Panthers game at Bank of America Stadium. The Sir Purr Bowl presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina provides Pop Warner Jr. Pee Wee teams and cheerleading squads the once-in-a-lifetime experience of playing in an NFL stadium. Four teams from the Carolinas compete in the Ray Bowl at Memorial Stadium each year to determine who plays in the Sir Purr Bowl.

Youth Football Coach of the Week

The Carolina Panthers Youth Coach of the Week program, modeled after the NFL's High School Coach of the Week program, recognizes youth coaches who, through their hard work and dedication, have made a difference in the lives of their players and impacted youth football through their volunteer efforts.
