ABOUT THE LEAGUE

The WBBIFL was founded in 2009 and is currently entering its 10th season with the STJFL; our parent league.

George Brown, Al Harrington, and Shane Chambers are the founding members.

We are one of several associations that participate in the Golden Triangle. Our divisional age ranges between 5-12 years old. Our organization has four divisions: Flag (5-6), Pee Wee Tackle (7-8), Junior Tackle (9-10), and Senior Tackle (11-12). Division ages are determined by the participant's age by August 1st of that season.

We compete with teams within the Golden Triangle area; therefore, there is no extensive traveling. The following are the other teams affiliated with STJFL: East Beaumont Timberwolves, Nederland, Port Neches-Groves, Bridge City, Orangefield, Port Arthur, West Orange-Stark, Little Cypress-Mauriceville, Lumberton, Vidor, Kountze, Hamshire-Fannett, East Chambers, Jasper, and Silsbee.

We are excited about our affiliation with the USA Football League which is backed by the NFL. The coaches are prudently selected by the board of directors to represent the WBBIFL. The coaches are required to successfully complete a certification process that educates them with the essential knowledge of safety precautions and football fundamentals to coach our athletes.

We are proud and honored of our STJFL Super Bowl Championship wins during 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2017 football seasons. Our 2012 Pee Wee Blue Team went undefeated for the season and earned the Bulldogs their first super bowl trophy. During the 2013 season, ALL teams in EVERY division made it to the playoffs! The 2014 season was a much better season with Flag Blue AND our Senior boys winning the 2014 STJFL Superbowl! The 2016 season was by far our best season ever with Flag Gold, Pee Wee Blue and our Senior boys all winning the 2016 STJFL Superbowl Championships in their division! Yes, 2016 was a trifecta year!! The 2017 football season finished with another Flag Blue division super bowl win! We can't wait to see what the 2018 season will add to our winning streaks!

We are a non-profit volunteer organization. We need your support! Please do not hesitate to volunteer!

Our season begins the first week of August (when we begin conditioning) to the middle of November (depending on playoffs and bowl game schedules). We practice and play home games at both Kelly High School and West Brook High School.


WBBIFL DETAILS / INFORMATION

ATHLETIC PROGRAM

You must be committed to participating in this program!!

Our coaches give 100% of effort towards developing each athlete's fundamental skills and awareness of the game. This achieved by balancing physical conditioning and the basic fundamentals of football. It is imperative that each player exudes a positive attitude and participates willingly at all times.

BULLDOG PRIDE

Pride is dignity and self-respect through the satisfaction of achievement. Leading programs always convey a sense of unyielding pride in order to be successful. We encourage Bulldog spirit by supporting your team, community, and all efforts to be successful.

PARTICIPATION

Players are expected to participate in every practice. Playing time will result from the amount of time, effort, and enthusiasm demonstrated in drills and group activities. If a player refuses to dedicate himself to practice every day; then our program may not be right for them. Practices are closed to ensure quality and absolute attention without interruption. Our "closed practice" policy means that parents should not coach from the sidelines or communicate with their kids during practices. The only coaching staff and board members with a displayed badge will be allowed on the field. Positive comments and cheering from the sidelines for things well done are of course encouraged and appreciated. If you need to talk to your child's coach please do so either before or after practice.

TEAM POSTURE

A team is a small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose, performance goals, and approach for which they hold themselves mutually accountable.

All our players/parents are role models. They represent our team, league, school, community, and their families. Only positive attitudes and good behavior are acceptable. This creates the type of leadership required to properly motivate each player in becoming a valuable asset to our program and our community.
