The Grosse Pointe Red Barons are a community-based youth football program that promotes the physical, mental and social development of children from 6-13 years old by providing instruction in football and cheerleading.
Beginning with flag, and three levels of tackle football, the Red Barons are perfectly equipped to instruct young football players and cheerleaders from the very outset of their playing and cheering days up to high school football and cheerleading. With a team of coaches boasting decades of football success, and with an absolute premium on player safety, we will build the skills, fundamentals, and mental approach to ensure the utmost preparedness as our players and cheerleaders enter High School.
Regular registration ends on July 1, 2018 - players and cheerleaders must register by this date in order to get personalized game jerseys or cheer warm ups. This date cannot be flexible due to the lead time requiered when ordering the items. Late registration ends on August 1, 2018 - players and cheerleaders registered between July 2- August 1, 2018 will receive the same jerseys and warm ups, but without the personalization. Beginning this season, players and cheerleaders will keep their jerseys and warm ups.
Practice begins August 1st for Cheer and August 6th for Football. Pre-Season Tackle practices will typically run Monday – Friday, from 5:00 – 7:00. Once the season begins, practices will run Tuesday – Friday and the hours will gradually reduce as the days grow shorter. The Travel Flag practice schedule will be a less-frequent version of our Tackle schedule, with 3 practices per week. Our End of the Season Banquet will be held on November 11, 2018.
