The Goal of the PHMFA is to provide a youth football and cheerleading program for boys and girls ages 5-13 within the community of Penn Hills. We are determined to bring the best experience possible for our members, leaving them with memories to share for generations. 

Our focus is primarily on our kids and our community through youth football. It is important to have a good foundation which has brought us “back to the basics”. We start with teaching the fundamentals of the game and overall molding of future citizens. This is first above the winning of the game and a large focus of the PHMFA moving forward into the 2020 season.

PHMFA Facilities

The PHMFA Field that is nestled back in the suburbs of Penn Hills has been home to youth football for decades. With a family friendly atmosphere, friendship park offers plenty of parking, playgrounds, restrooms and walking space.

A renovated concession stand acts as the hub for all of your eating and drinking needs during your time at the field.

Fully insured and inspected, we pride ourselves on having one of the best concession experiences around. 

Hard Work and Determination Required!

Football is the name of our game.
Consistent coaching and constant adaptation with a high drive for success has brought our town to be one of the most sought after places in Pittsburgh to search for career long players. 

Our attention lays primarily in our players, their teams, and the coaches teaching them the game.

PHMFA Community

75 yrs of signups, pep rally's, senior nights, and championships.
Decades of fundraisers, car washes camps, and banquets.

Years, days and hours of our community, families and children coming together to make youth football a great place for the entire community.

Thank you to all who have poured their sweat and tears out for this program over all these years. We appreciate you.


The 1945 Blackridge Bantams, (founded by Blair Studebaker, former Wilkinsburg School board director) found its home at Penn Hills, beginning its 75-year history.

Since then the Penn Hills Midget Football Association has added teams of all youth age levels, as well as a youth cheerleading program. 


Through its many trials and hardships over 75 years, the PHMFA is still standing strong, providing the school district and the community of Penn Hills with youth football.

We are in pursuit to make the town of Penn Hills a desired home for families to come to who are looking for stability within their community. This begins with our local politicians and community members working hard to bring a well budgeted, safe, functioning municipality. The intent of the PHMFA is to serve our residents by providing a much-needed avenue for our children to participate in organized sports
