WE ARE THE FIREBIRDS! The Scottsdale Firebirds program was founded in 2008 for student athletes to compete at the highest level of youth tackle football on a state, regional and national level. The certified and experienced coaching personnel of the Scottsdale Firebirds are focused on developing individual character, skills and leadership with emphasis on the team-first mentality in order to prepare scholar-athletes for the high school football experience.  

Since our inaugural year, the Scottsdale Firebirds program has set the benchmark for youth tackle football and cheer across the nation winning more Arizona state, regional and national championship awards than any program.  With unequaled success in the classroom and on the football field the Firebirds youth tackle football and cheer program has achieved national recognition and acclaim.

A SAFER LEAGUE IS A BETTER LEAGUE.  In addition to developing individual character, skills and leadership, the Scottsdale Firebirds know that SAFETY COMES FIRST — both for the players on the field and their parents on the sidelines.  Led by certified and experienced coaches, the Scottsdale Firebirds tackle football program has been on the forefront of the movement to make youth football safer by ensuring youth football is being taught the right way.  Please see the Safety First web page tab above for more information about the steps taken to ensure the health and safety of our youth athletes.
