Welcome to BBFC!

Welcome to the online home of the Brighton Bulldogs Football and Cheer. Our athletes  represent excellence both on and off the field, and we set our expectations high: study hard, train hard, and work hard. Our athletics program is unparalleled, thanks to a supportive community of parents and fans. Our experienced coaching staff specializes in building better athletes, students, and citizens. We emphasize teamwork and demand the personal commitment to "play like champions"—every practice, every game, every time.

The goal of Brighton Bulldogs Football and Cheer is is to win, but that is NOT the primary goal. The primary goal is to teach young athletes the benefits of team sports in a safe manner, to nurture their growth potential, and to provide them with an opportunity to compete with their peers while also demonstrating good sportsmanship and teamwork.

SPEED & AGILITY REGISTRATION


WHY SPEED AND AGILITY?

2024 REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.

WHY SPEED & AGILITY?

Speed and agility have become two of the most important attributes an athlete can have. The goal of this camp is to improve the speed and agility of all campers for football and cheer. The speed portion of the camp has four priority components. The first two are the actual keys to improving speed, stride length, and stride frequency.

Stride length improvements are accomplished using over speed training as well as plyometrics to increase leg power and strength. Improvements to stride frequency are addressed through resisted sprints, agility, and ladder drills.

The other two components are running form/technique and the ‘Start’ all four components are focused on during the speed and agility camp sessions. Through the camp, we will also address proper change of direction technique and form to improve agility test times as well as on field/court efficiency. Also, as a component of this camp proper jumping mechanics and technique will be taught and trained to help decrease the incidence of ACL tears.

We have added a football skills portion that focusing on training progression for blocking and tackling steps, get-offs, positioning, and arm motion working with dummies. The goal is to provide a solid basis prior to the start of fall practice.

Coaching a youth sports team can be a tremendously rewarding experience, giving you the opportunity to help young players learn the game of football and the sport of cheer in a fun and safe atmosphere. A good coach is enthusiastic, supportive, trustworthy, goal-oriented, knowledgeable/experienced, respectful, patient, and a clear communicator. Sports coaches model excellent sportsmanship and teach teamwork; they serve as the liaison to parents and community; and, they act with integrity at all times.
