SCOTTSDALE FIREBIRDS YOUTH TACKLE FOOTBALL AND CHEER  

 

WE ARE THE FIREBIRDS! The Scottsdale Firebirds youth football and cheer association was founded in 2008 for student athletes to compete at the highest level of youth tackle football and cheer 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.  

Since our inaugural year, the Scottsdale Firebirds program has set the benchmark for youth tackle football and cheer across the nation by winning 17 Arizona state  championships and more 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.

THE FIREBIRDS AND D1 SPORTS TRAINING-SCOTTSDALE

The Firebirds have partnered with D1 Training – Scottsdale  (https://www.d1training.com/) for off-season training.  D1 Training is a nationally recognized sports training company for professional, collegiate, and aspiring collegiate athletes.  D1 has recently built a new training facility in Scottsdale, and it has youth training programs designed for athletes aged 8-14 that focus on developing athletic movement, power, speed, and strength.  Each Firebirds team will have the opportunity to train as a team at D1 twice a week during the off-season.  This training is FREE for all registered Firebirds players!  

ANNUAL FOOTBALL AND CHEER SKILLS CAMP

In view of recent events with COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, the Scottsdale Firebirds Board of Directors have made the decision to postpone the  Annual Football and Cheer Camp, which was originally scheduled for March 28 at Chaparral H.S.  The Firebirds are are in the process of selecting an alternative date for the camp.  Please check back soon for updates!

The Scottsdale Firebirds annual youth football and cheer skills camp focuses on football and cheer fundamentals and agility drills.  Last year, nearly 200 athletes from all over the Valley participated in the camp, which featured some of the best coaches in the nation, including former professional and collegiate athletes.      The camp is FREE to attend, ages 8-14.  The skills camp is a non-contact drill based camp, so no helmets or pads will be required for football players (mouthpieces recommended).

 FIREBIRDS PLAYERS,  COACHES AND PARENTS GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY!

The Scottsdale Firebirds strive to create players who are productive members of society, and who are prepared to serve their community. The Firebirds believe the best way to reach this goal is to provide student-athletes with hands-on community service experiences,

Several players, coaches, and parents of the Firebirds Mitey Mite team volunteered their time at the Feed My Starving Children charity that feed kids all around the world, including the US.
