What is the NFL Club?

We are students and teachers who come alive in September when the preseason opens for the NFL. We are students who want to be more involved and learn about the sport. We are fans forever!

What do we do in the NFL Club?

We will meet each week (day and time TBA). At our meetings we will discuss the NFL divisions and keep track of records, follow Rookies to track their progress, keep an

injured/reserved roster and predict how these injuries will affect teams. Students will be expected to gather information and history about assigned teams and present them to fellow club members. Students will learn about the conduct of fans. Students will learn basic football knowledge about scoring, penalties, and plays.

In September, we will make Super Bowl predictions which will be sealed until February. If predicted correctly, someone will win a prize.

Who can join?

Anyone and everyone.

The 4-H Youth Development Program is a component of the UGA Extension Service.  The 4-H program is an educational program that teaches leadership, citizenship, public speaking and practical life skills. The goal is to make learning fun! More than 1,700 young people participate in Forsyth County 4-H activities.

The 4-H Program is introduced and utilized as part of the curriculum in the Forsyth County School System. There are also 4-H activities outside of school. 4-H is open to all children in 4th through 12th grades. 4-H may have begun as an agricultural/farming related club; however, today, 4-H has evolved to teach community involvement, science, ecology, technology, recycling, photography, performing arts, nutrition, violence prevention, teamwork and many other relevant topics to Forsyth County youth.


There is no charge to be a 4-H member. Some optional activities may have a small fee.  A local 4H agent comes to VCMS once a month to conduct the meetings and present the meeting topics.  Meetings will be held monthly in Mrs. Bennett's classroom.
