Welcome to the Lumberton Football Association Website!
The LFA Board of Directors are proud to be affiliated with the Lumberton North Carolina Recreation Department and the over 300 youth that participate in our program. As we begin our 9th year, we want to welcome Coach Joe Salas to Lumberton High School. Coach Salas and his Air Raid offense is sure to build on the foundation that Coach Mike Brill has built over the past six years. We also want to congratulate Coach Brill on his retirement! Coach Brill was a positive influence over a countless number of kids during his 30 years of coaching.
As you navigate our site, be sure to take a look at our sponsors. Without these community supporters, we would not be where we are today. While browsing, you will be able to register for camps, our league and review the calendar of events. The are many new events going on this year and below are just a few:

The new Defensive Coordinator at Lumberton High School, Ron Cook is offering a great opportunity for one on one training. The DWC Training classes will be specific to defensive prospects from ages 8-14 years old. This learning opportunity has never been offered before and is a great way to prepare our young players to improve on and off the field. For more information, contact the Lumberton Recreation Department or Coach Ron Cook @ 704-496-0107, firstname.lastname@example.org or Twitter:3Defense.
There is always a need for quality coaches in our league. We have 3 divisions within our system. Our first is our Flag League and the other two are tackle. We all know that having the time to volunteer is difficult but the rewards and the lessons you can teach these kids will last a lifetime. Please contact us at the numbers below for more information.
The LFA is 95% privately funded. The financial crisis of 2008 was a tremendous blow to our operations which still has an effect today. Your generous sponsorship will not only help the LFA, but our influence spreads all the way to Lumberton High School. Please click the "Sponsor" tab to the left for more information about our "Vision" and the "Lumberton Quarterback Club."
