We are currently accepting players for the 2019 season. We play both regular season games as well as pre-season and post-season tournaments including show case games where we play teams from out-of-state which gives our players a great experience to be exposed to other teams and talent.

WHO ARE THE 9U COACHES?

The Bolingbrook Buccaneers 9U Team is headed up by youth football Coach, Mike Brown. Coach Brown brings a vast amount of coaching experience.  Coach Brown moves into his second season with the Bolingbrook Buccaneers program after leading the 2018 8U Allstars as the Defensive Coordinator at UYFL Nationals.  Here are some other key points in Coach Brown's:
