Bethlehem Raiders 50th Anniversary Season

image_name2

The 2014 season is the Bethlehem Raiders organization’s 50th Anniversary.  We are the City of Bethlehem’s oldest and original youth football program.

In 1964, the founding members established the Raiders organization to give the children of Bethlehem an opportunity to play youth football in the newly formed Lehigh Valley Knee-Hi Youth Football League.

We are celebrating this milestone event as we open the season on Saturday August 16th for our first pre-season game. We would like to reach out to past Raiders members and athletes to come out and share their memories. Join us along with Mayor Donchez, Liberty HS Grenadier Band, Steelhawk Cheerleaders and much more. Our board is working on planning events surrounding the 50th Anniversary; check this website or facebook page for updates.

We are excited to carry on the proud Raider tradition for many more years to come.
