2020 Football and Cheer Season Schedule

As more information about the season comes available, we will update this site. Be well and stay safe. We all want to play safely.

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 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 youth the benefits of team sports in a safe manner, to nurture their growth potential, and to provide them an opportunity to compete with their peers.

Toughness is a skill and can be practiced and improved like all other skills.


Play Hard, Play Smart and Play Together”. Hard means with effort, determination and courage; Smart means with proper execution and poise, Together means unselfishly, trusting your teammates and doing everything possible not to let them down.

"If you want to win, do the ordinary things better than anyone else does them day in and day out"
                                                                                                                              Chuck Noll

BBFC Coaching

Positive & Enthusiastic volunteers needed to coach with Brighton Bulldogs Football and Cheer!  

Coaching a youth sports football team can be a tremendously rewarding experience, giving you the opportunity to help young players learn the game of football in a fun and safe atmosphere. Time dedication, character and integrity are a must. Football experience is preferred for the older teams, but not required for the younger teams or for assistant coaches.

For cheerleading, we are seeking energetic, motivated coaches and assistant coaches who enjoy working with youth between the ages of 5 to 13 years old and young women participate in cheerleading. Additionally, the bond created by a parent coaching their child is one that will be cherished and remembered for years to come. 

Enthusiasm, time dedication, character and a positive attitude are a must!

If you want to be a coach please download and complete the Coaching Application here. It requests some personal info that will enable us to complete a background check.  Once the background check is passed you will be eligible to coach and will be contacted prior to the season beginning to confirm your spot and provide you with details on the upcoming coaches meeting.

COVID-19 UPDATE

With continued uncertainty around youth sports, and the start of our season being just one short month away, we want to give you the most recent and accurate information regarding the youth Football and Cheer Season. 

THE SEASON

We are still planning on practice starting August 10th @ 6:00 PM at Maltby.   That may be impacted should the restrictions move backwards or not progress from where they are now.  There is also talk from the governor's office about moving fall sports to spring.   Regardless of what the decision point is, the board has been moving forward with plans to start on Aug 10 and contingency should we not be able to do so.   The situation is fluid and we monitor developments on a daily basis as well as being in close contact with BAS, MHSAA and MHSFCA. 

Should the season shift to spring, your registration will be held, you will be rostered on the same team, you will have the same coaches.   There is nothing you will have to do. 

BBFC has decided to NOT host any program wide camps or clinics, however the HS is still planning on hosting a football camp for 5th through 8th graders on July 21st from 5:30- 7:30PM.  Registration for this camp is not yet open, look for additional communication once registration is open.  

SAFETY AND PRECAUTIONS

When we do start practices there will be processes in place to ensure the safety of athletes, families and coaches. These are there not just for compliance but to ensure we reduce the risk of transmission of COVID to as low as possible.  The steps we are taking will include: 

  • Mandatory completion of an online COVID screening attestation for each player, cheerleader and coach on a daily basis prior to being allowed to practice or play.
  • Mandatory touchless thermometer screening before allowing players, cheerleaders or coaches to participate in practice or games.
  • Enhanced sanitation of all common equipment throughout practice and at the end of each session.
  • Mandatory face coverings when not in play in the form of a neck gaiter or mask for cheerleaders.
  • Contact tracing of all spectators at competitions. 
  • Social Distancing appropriate to the level of restriction as defined by the state of Michigan

MHSAA is allowing High School athletes to participate without a current physical form.   BBFC has decided that given the age of our players and cheerleaders, we will STRONGLY recommend that each player and cheerleader has a current physical form OR a physical form dated after January 1 2020.   If your player or cheerleader had a medical waiver from their doctor to play, we will need a new waiver for the 2020 season. 

We are also requiring a new waiver this year, it is attached to this email.  You will need to print, sign and turn in at your equipment hand out.  

EQUIPMENT HANDOUT

  • CHEER equipment hand out for VARSITY (7th and 8th grade) ONLY will be this SUNDAY 7/12 for fitting purposes only
  • CHEER Paperwork collection will be July 26th, 
  • CHEER equipment hand-out will be the first day of practice Aug 10th. 
  • FOOTBALL equipment hand-out will be AUGUST 2nd from noon to 5PM, specific instructions to follow as we get closer to the date. 
  • FOOTBALL make-up equipment hand-out will be August 4th from 4 - 7PM, specific instructions to follow as we get closer to the date. 

For ALL equipment hand-outs you will need the following: 

  • CHEER UNIFORM CONTRACT if you are participating in cheer 
  • DOG DUTY CHECK made out to BBFC for $200
  • OUTSTANDING BALANCE due for registration  
  • WAIVER
  • BIRTH CERTIFICATE
  • PHYSICAL FORM and MEDICAL WAIVER as appropriate
  • REPORT CARD
  • ATTENDANCE POLICY if you are participating in cheer 

I know this was a lot of information to take in, so should you have questions, reach out to the board and we'll provide you clarity or guidance on the latest information. 

Go Bulldogs,

President, BBFC

FUNDRAISERS

One of the ways that BBFC  raises money for equipment, facilities rental, uniforms for football and cheer is through fundraisers. Please look at the upcoming fundraising  activities and enjoy a meal at the restaurant locations  while supporting your football and cheer teams!
