Football Program

The Wolfhound Football program is open to the boys of all registered parishioners,grades 4th through 8th.

We play our home games at the Brigid's Green and play in the Columbus Diocese Recreation Association leagues during the fall. 

For our 2nd & 3rd Graders - the football program offers a developmental program called Lil' Hounds.   Lil' Hounds allows our younger players the ability to learn about the game of football and play with their classmates.   Lil' Hounds usually happens once a week, for 5-7 weeks.

Wolfhound Summer Mini-Camp

Every Saturday morning during the summer from 8:30a-10a at Brigid's Green across from parish - the football program gets together to run through conditioning and non-contact football drills.  In addition to the Saint Brigid coaches, Bishop Watterson and St. Charles coaching staff and players will come and support with some drills and leadership during a few of the workouts.

These are completely optional.  The Football programs is looking to provide an opportunity to build fundamental football education and begin getting your boys acquainted with each other and these great coaches in the program.  

Not sure about playing next season?  Come on out and see what St. Brigid Football is about!!!  There is NO FEE to attend the camps!

What to bring: cleats, t-shirt, shorts, and jug of water (normal bottle of water/Gatorade won’t be enough).

Football Camps

Most Summers there are football camps held by local high schools.   Check back for any information on camps for your son to sign-up for during the summer.

Keep an eye open for upcoming camps, but many are closed for this year.

Football FAQs

Send it to the Football Commissioner and we will post it here!

Q: When will practices start, and what days of the week will they be?
Practices usually begin around the first week of August. There will be four days of conditioning without pads (helmets, shorts and tshirts), one day of pads with no contact, and then full pads/full contact from that point on. IMPORTANT: if your player misses the required conditioning days, he will be required to make them up before being allowed to make contact. And no – attendance at our summer conditioning sessions do not count.

The practice schedule will be 4-5 days a week before school starts. Once school starts we are restricted to three days per week for 4th, 5th and 6th grades, 4 days for Varsity. The individual coaches will decide the days of the week to practice.

Q: What do I need to purchase?
We provide helmets, shoulder pads and game jerseys.
You will need to purchase:

  • Mouth guard
  • Football pants with pads integrated
  • Practice jersey

Q: When are the games and when do they start?
 Games are played typically on Sunday afternoons, but there maybe a Saturday game as scheduled by the Diocese.

League games will begin in Mid-September, with final bowl games in early November. 4th grade teams will not have a bowl game. Actual game times do not get released until just before the first game. Game times will be posted on the individual team pages of this site as soon as the diocese releases them.

Q: What are the weight limits?

A: There is NO limit to the amount a player can weigh, but weight is a factor in what position he may play. In general, here are the classifications:

  • Unrestricted: may play any position
  • Striper: may not play in the offensive backfield/cannot carry the football
  • X er: must play offensive or defensive line

Final Weight-Limits determined by the Diocese each year, but in the past, here are some previous weights:

VARSITY (7th & 8th Grade)
176-190 (STRIPER )
191 + (X ER)

146-160 (STRIPER)

RESERVE (5th Grade)
136-150 (STRIPER)

Q: What is in place to make football as safe as possible for my son?
A:  Football coaches are required to complete more training than any other coaches in St. Brigid's offerings.  All coaches are have had a background check and completed the following trainings: Protecting God's Children, USA Football Heads Up Training (proper and safest tackling techniques and general player safety), Concussion, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training.  Although not required, multiple coaches are CPR, Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and First Aid certified.  There will always be an AED at our practice site. 

Our football helmets are monitored throughout the season and inspected at the end of each season.  If the helmets appear to be damaged or were worn for two seasons, they get sent back to the manufacturer to be reconditioned.  Helmet reconditioning includes a manufacturer's inspection, cleaning, buffing and painting, any necessary repairs, and re-certification.

Please note: to satisfy Diocesan Safe Environment Policies, all coaches and assistant coaches 18 years of age are required to have completed Protecting God’s Children and have a current background check, volunteer application and signed Code of Conduct on file with the parish.
