The Washtenaw Maize and Blue football and cheer teams offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for boys and girls between the ages of seven and thirteen to learn many of the same lessons of teamwork, perseverance and sportsmanship that the real Michigan Wolverines do. And, most importantly, they have FUN in a competitive environment!
We emphasize safety in all we do. In addition to investments in the latest and greatest gear, all of our coaches are trained in and teach USA Football’s Heads UP Football program to every participant.
What we teach
The team, the team, the team. Being a part of something greater than yourself can be a tough lesson for kids today. We teach this lesson more than any other.
Scoreboard wins and losses fade quickly. The lessons in sportsmanship that we reinforce daily stay for a lifetime.
We embrace competition. Not because we want to beat another team, but because we want to teach our kids to strive to become their best selves.
100%. We emphasize effort over results. Giving 100% to the game is a life lesson that our kids go on to apply not only on the field, but also in the classroom and in their daily lives.
