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.

Registration for RETURNING ATHLETES is now open through SportsEngine. Emails were sent out to last year's families on April 8 with instructions.

Registration for NEW ATHLETES, including siblings of a current athlete,  opens Wednesday, May 1 at 7am


Drafts and rostering takes place in June. Head Coaches will reach out to teams the first week of July.



Participants who choose to leave the program and ask for a refund between the time of registration and the end of the first week of practice will be refunded the entire registration less 25%. Refunds requested between the second week of practice until the first game of the season will be refunded the registration fee less 50%. After the first game, there is no refund available. Season-ending injury situations may be dealt with as an exception to this policy and will be determined on an individual basis.


BBFC Football and Cheer Coaching

Interested in Coaching Youth Football or Cheer?

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.

Football Coach Applicants: Time, dedication, character, and integrity, and organization are a must. Head coaches must be able to communicate well with parents. Football experience and/or previous coaching experience is preferred. Attendance at all events throughout the season is mandatory for all coaches, regardless of level. 

Cheer Coach Applicants: Previous cheerleading experience, coaching experience, and/or dance experience is now required due to areas of teaching choreography, assisting with stunting and tumbling, safety, and MHSAA regulations. Promoting positive teamwork and modeling excellent sportsmanship is a must. Attendance at all events throughout the season is mandatory for all coaches, regardless of level.

Note to All Coaching Applicants: Regular and consistent attendance is required for all BBFC coaches at all practices and events. Our organization strives to bring on new coaches who have integrity, patience, experience, and strong ethics. Coaches represent our program and our community; they should act as positive role models at all times, even outside of coaching situations.

All applicants must download and complete the Coaching Application below. It requests personal information for a background check. Our New Coaching Advisory Committee and the BBFC Executive Board goes through the selection process together, tediously ensuring that we select the best possible candidates for our young athletes. When there is a high volume of coaching candidates, experience comes first. Once decisions are made, candidates will be contacted for next steps/interviews. Once selected, new coaches are expected to attend all trainings and coaches meetings.

"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.

Why does youth football boost participants' confidence?
Because it gives them a sense of belonging and purpose. Because it surrounds them with mentors who pour into their lives and make them feel valued. Because it teaches them that they can handle any challenge that comes their way.

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


One of the ways that BBFC raises money for equipment, facilities rental, uniforms, and game days for football and cheer is through our fundraisers. Parents help us run these by selling to their family, friends, and neighbors. Please look at the upcoming fundraising  activities and consider helping out BBFC! Fundraisers we have done in the past include MUMS and HUNGRY HOWIES PIZZA CARDS!
