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.

COACHING REGISTRATION

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, dedication, 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. Good decision-making skills is a must.

How do youth sports boost participants' confidence?
Youth sports gives children a sense of belonging and purpose. It surrounds them with mentors who get involved with their lives and make them feel valued. Sports teaches young athletes that they can handle any challenge that comes their way.
