HAWKS FOOTBALL HOMEPAGE


Welcome to the home of PARKER HAWKS Football!!  The Hawks Football program is the premier competitive tackle football club representing Parker and the surrounding areas of Franktown & Elizabeth.  The Hawks believe that youth football should build skill, confidence and a love of the game.  This happens when kids get to play the game at the right level, not sit on the bench.  The Hawks are proud to have pioneered the highest minimum play requirements in the area to insure new and developing players the best experience.  For newer players still learning the sport, this means nearly 50 plays per game, guaranteed.  The Hawks also offer multiple divisions to allow kids to participate against the appropriate level of competition while they learn the game.  This approach also enables the Hawks to maintain the highest level of competition in the state through our select (NFC) division.

UPDATED: 2014 NFC Division Evaluations
by posted 04/02/2014
 

UPDATE: DUE TO WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS EXPECTED ON 4/13/2014 THE NFC EVALUATIONS WILL BE MOVED TO 4/27/2014. THE LOCATION WILL BE CONFIRMED SHORTLY. 

The most up to date information can be found here on our website.

Evaluations are only for players wishing to join the Hawks NFC team in their age group.  Players who returning to a Hawks NFC team do not need to be evaluated.  Players staying with their teams in the AFC or CFC, or joining teams in those divisions do not need to be evaluated. 

The Hawks will hold open evaluations of players ages 10-14 for our NFC division teams. Players will wear full pads for the evaluation and registration will take place on site.  The NFC is considered our 'select' division where almost all of the players have several years experience playing tackle football. This division provides the highest level of youth competition in the state.  If your player is interested in the opportunity to step up to a high level of competitive football this is his opportunity for the 2014 season!

Evaluations will be done by an experienced group of coaches with a very strong track record of success at the NFC and high school levels of competition.  Players with previous tackle football experience with the Hawks or any other organization are eligible to be evaluated and welcome to attend.  Please spread the word to anyone you know that may be interested in joining the Hawks and competing at the NFC level.  

The goal is to build highly competitive Hawks teams in each age group.  The NFC division is our select division, placement with a team will depend on both the evaluation results and the availability of roster spots and position needs on the NFC team in your child's age group.    Because of the select nature of the NFC, the number of guaranteed minimum plays are the lowest (16) and rosters are traditionally kept smaller than teams in other divisions.   Placement on an NFC roster is not guaranteed by participating in the evaluation.

All ages are based on the age of the player on 5/31/2014.   Players wanting to play down one age level (see the football FAQ for eligibility) should attend the time for the lower age level they wish to play in this year.

2014 HAWKS FOOTBALL EQUIPMENT & GENERAL INFORMATION
posted 04/15/2012
 
The Hawks believe that players have the best football experience by playing against the appropriate level of competition.  To insure this, we try as much as possible to keep the size of teams down and to place players new to the Hawks at the appropriate level of competition.  This means to maintain the best experience for all of the players in our community, we may not be able to accommodate each individual team or teammate request.   Our goal is for teams and players to stay together, providing a better experience and producing teams that reach the playoffs more often than 'scrambling' teams every year.  However, we also attempt to balance teams by size and for competitive balance in their division and may need to place players based on their skill level and the size of the team to provide the best football experience for all players. 

Important Notice Regarding Team Placement

 
1. Although the Hawks collect coach and teammate requests we will not guarantee placement of players on any team.  You will be placed where your child has the best opportunity to play.

ABOUT OUR COACHES
posted 10/04/2010
 

FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR PLAYERS AND THEIR FAMILIES, PARKER YOUTH SPORTS CONDUCTS BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ALL HEAD AND ASSISTANT COACHES ANNUALLY. 

 
Hawks football has a very successful track record and is partly due to our experienced and knowledgeable coaches. 
Many of our coaches have a number of years experience coaching football and other sports. Our coaches are expected to attend at least 2 clinics annually and most of our successful coaches attend numerous clinics throughout the year.  It is this experience and training that allow them to fundamentals and skills in an age appropriate manner and develop players with a solid foundation to move on to high school competition.

If you think you have what it takes to instill a lof of the game and teach the sport of football, please fill out our Coach's Application.  We will follow up with you to schedule an interview.  Each year we look to add quality coaches as both head coaches and assistants on new and existing teams.

FOOTBALL DIVISIONS
posted 10/04/2010
 

The Hawks, in conjunction with the Arapahoe Youth League, participate in three different divisions in which kids can compete depending on your child's skill level and football experience.  We have players from each division move on to play and start in high school and even in college.  Playing in the appropriate division now will build your child's confidence and maximize their playing time, which is the key to their success in the future.  Parents please make sure you know your child's ability level and are honest with them, and know what your own expectations are before placing your child on a team.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding where your child should play please contact the Football Coordinator (Josh Merrill 720 583-5090).

CFC DIVISION:

This division is considered our "beginners" division and is recommended for newer teams and players who are new to tackle football.  This division is a good building tool for kids to learn the fundamentals of the game and provides the highest level of gauranteed playing time (nearly 50 plays per game) to let them build their skills.  This division is considered our starters league where kids and teams alike start out gaining valuable instruction and a general understanding of the game.  This division is still competitive football and plays by many of the same set of rules as our other divisions.

AFC DIVISION:

Most parents will find that the AFC is a perfect fit for their child. The AFC division is considered our experienced division.  Players with tackle football experience are recommended to sign up for this division.  Many of our players spend their entire career at this level before moving on to play high school football.  Many players in this division are capable of playing at the highest level, though the teams overall aren't as experienced as the NFC division teams.  The AFC division gaurantees 25 plays per game, as much as 3x the number of plays gauranteed in other organizations.  If your child is looking for a very competitive brand of football, you may want to consider the AFC.  

NFC DIVISION:

The NFC is considered our 'select' division where almost all of the kids have several years experience playing tackle football. This division provides the highest level of competition in the state.  The number of gauranteed plays are the lowest (16), but still double what other organizations gaurantee.  Roster spots are allocated by the coach of the team.  Parents can request to have their son placed on an NFC team however these teams are typically "hand picked" by the football director or the NFC coaches.
