    2016 Spectator Policies During Practice



    The Cougar Football and Cheerleading board requires that anyone who is not a coach or an on-duty medic observe practice sessions from the bleachers.  The sidelines, and areas immediately surrounding the practice fields need to be kept clear in order for the coaches to maintain a focused, safe environment for the players.  Thank you in advance for your understanding, and compliance.  


    GYM SPECTATOR POLICY  - Middle School Gym

    The Cougar Football and Cheerleading board requires that the Middle School gym, when used for cheer practices, be kept completely clear of any spectators until the final 15 minutes of practice. The coaches need to maintain a safe, focused environment for the girls.  Thank you in advance for your understanding, and compliance. 


    Please take a few minutes to become familiar with the local businesses who are supporting our cheer and football activities. Sponsor information can be found in the "SPONSORS" tab in the top of the the left navigational area of this home page. You can also click on sponsors ads on the left side of the home page to learn more about them on their websites. Without the generous local business support of our sponsors, the costs of participation for individuals would be far greater than it is currently. Thank You!

    HFL Cougar Mini Helmets are available for purchase for $30 each by either seeing Dan Meacham at any of this weeks final 3 practices, sending an e-mail to, or placing an order at the Merchandise Tent at next Sunday’s final home game.

    Concussion Facts

    There has been a great deal of focus recently placed upon the issue of concussions in the sport of football. Following numerous studies, government agencies, schools, and football sanctioning bodies have created guidelines aimed at protecting our youth from unnecessary injuries. Our league has set policies in place for this season that specifically address this important issue. Please take a few minutes to read the Fact Sheet for Parents attached below. Being aware of concussion prevention, symptoms, and treatment is extremely important. 

    The Registration "2016 HFL Youth Football and Cheerleading Registration" is not currently available.
