The Knightdale Knights teach and expect excellence both on and off the field in the following areas:
- Sportsmanship (in both players and families)
- Respect (both for ourselves and others)
We teach football, cheer, and life skills. We work hard, play hard, and have fun.
We are the Knightdale Knights.
