Cranbrook Varsity Football


  • “Supporting your son's participation demonstrates your belief that lessons learned thru football, team work, dedication, sacrifice, persistence and hard work will serve them well as they mature into responsible adults.”

  • “Having a successful season doesn't just happen, it requires a commitment and willingness to put in the time and effort prior to the season.”

  • "This commitment, effort, and hard work will play an important part in our success this year. The coaches are excited and optimistic heading into the season.  One of our primary goals, and why camp is so important, is the development of TEAM, which stands for, Together Everyone Achieves More."  

  • "Finally, football is a great game, the value football plays is in teaching and experiencing life lessons.  Football helps build character thru Teamwork, Perseverance. Discipline, Commitment, and Goal Setting. The years here at Cranbrook will go quickly, however the memories of playing for their school and the friends they make and the joys and sorrows they experience will last a lifetime."
