The BANC Raiders can trace their roots back to the "Red Devils" teams of the 1960's, when Felix Guiffra Sr., Ralph Arnone and others organized the youth tackle football program in the Byram section of Greenwich. Subsequent BANC leaders have included Joe Vancho, George Finn and Harry Catanzaro.
The name BANC comes from the first letters of the Byram Archibald Neighborhood Center, a facility on Delavan Avenue, which provides after school educational and social programs, sports programs and summer camps for neighborhood children. The BANC program is founded on sportsmanship, teamwork, respect and hard work.
The BANC football and cheerleading programs have been able to teach life-lessons and provide memories to your children that will stay with them forever. Three divisions (Bantam, Junior and Senior) make up the Raiders and that means over 100 players and cheerleaders are involved each year. We hope that as adults, they look back on their years with BANC with great fondness and remember them as some of the happiest times they experienced as children.
