Houston Kid Cougars is a local youth organization that values its members’ achievements both on and off the field. While it’s important to us that the kids improve their skills on the field, we also want to see them reach their potential in the classroom. It is through the help of our devoted volunteers and sponsors that we are able to support our youth program. The Houston Kid Cougars can become the leaders of tomorrow with the contributions and interest of our advocates. We are grateful for the committed partners and volunteers that make our organization successful each year.
Our Educational & Health Focus:
We as an organization/coaching staff intend to take these young students of the game and drive home the basic fundamentals of football.
We also intend to enhance the knowledge of the game of football such as: “What usually happens in 3rd and long situations?” If you are winning a game, and have the ball do you want the clock to run or do you run out of bounds and stop the clock?
Every team has what is referred to as “studs” (usually the best and most dynamic players on a team). However, about the “role players” and their development?
We as an organization/coaching staff will concentrate on making these “role players” better.
The better the “role players” become, the better the chances of our organizations/football team success. Small wins add up to a team’s victory. Once again, thank you for your interest in Cougar Football, “Dare to become as good as you can be.”
Our Athletic / Football Focus:
Cheerleading is group of individuals performing tumbling, jumping and cheers to encourage and energize spectators at sporting events; it’s a team sport in which squads perform routines to music and are judged at competitions.
How can cheerleading help my child?
It allows them to develop a sense of responsibility to themselves and others.
It will build self-confidence and self-esteem.
They will learn teamwork
Cheerleading develops friendships.
Cheerleading teaches dedication.
It improves strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility
The Cougar cheerleaders are a close knit team, and our Coaching Staff treat each child as if it were our own. Our goal is to work with each cheerleader on an individual basis and bring out the best in each cheerleader throughout the season.
I understand the coaches, staff members, fellow parents, strategic partners, and the other children are making a commitment of their time and energy and I need to do the same. I will make every reasonable effort to have my child at all practices, games on time. If I cannot, I will notify the coach to let them know if my child will be late or will miss a game or practice. I understand my child may not participate fully in games and/or competitions if they have missed practice or games; this is at the discretion of the coach. I will help make this a great season for my child and the organization by giving 100% “Parent Commitment“.
