Welcome to The NWI Vipers!

NWI Vipers Football and Cheer Club

Formerly the Hessville Vipers, We are a Football and Cheer Club that has been in the Hammond, In. community for 20 years!  The Vipers are the only Indiana team that plays in the Metro League, playing all Illinois teams. We have changed our name to NWI (Northwest Indiana) Vipers to better represent the athletes on our teams. We also take much pride in being part of our community marching in all area Holiday Parades.  We are not a Feeder Program to a High School. The Vipers are a Training and Mentorship Organization and believe in getting our athletes prepared to succeed for wherever their futures may lead them

 The Vipers have been a player Hub for Great Programs like Andrean, Calumet New Tech & Morton High Schools in Indiana, as well as,  Mount Carmel, Brother Rice, and St. Rita High Schools in the Chicagoland area. The Vipers have even had former Vipers go on to play at the Professional Level like Lonnie Johnson (Houston Texans) and Antonio Pipkin
(Toronto Argonauts). We have a longstanding tradition of well-trained and well-coached athletes resulting in multiple championships for football and cheerleading on all levels! 

If you're in the NWI and are interested in maximizing the skills of your football player and cheerleader, then the Vipers are the ONLY team for you! 

See you on the 50!
