Competitive Youth Tackle Football

Welcome to the Junior Cougar youth football team for 7 - 12 year olds. Even though our focus is to support the Stoney Creek school district as a "feeder" organization into Hart MS and Stoney Creek HS, we welcome young football players who reside anywhere in the Northern Oakland County area inside or outside of the Stoney Creek HS district lines.


From an X's & O's perspective, we've designed our program to align with the basic football concepts of Stoney Creek High School. Our youngsters benefit from the ability to learn basic terminologies, formations and plays that they'll continue to run after graduating from the Junior Cougar program.


We currently have two (2) teams with playing ages ranging from 7 to 12 with the playing age determined by the age of your child as of September 1st. Our freshman team consists of 8 & 9 year-olds (with a maximum of five 7 year-olds). Our JV team consists of 10 - 12 year-olds (with a maximum of five 12 year-olds and 12-year old players must be entering 6th grade and NOT turn 13 y/o on or before December 1st.).


NOTE: Rochester Community Schools does not support or endorse any of the organizations and/or activities/events identified on this website. Stoney Creek Junior Cougars is a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit association (Tax ID 810870785) and is NOT owned or operated by Stoney Creek High School.
