The Junior Crusader program prepares our football players to compete within a Christian environment. Special emphasis is placed on having a “team” attitude, respect, and good sportsmanship. Junior Crusader Football is a developmental program dedicated to fostering a knowledge and appreciation of the game that will carry over to the high school years and beyond. Participants will learn the fundamentals of the sport from a cadre of coaches who bring a wealth of playing and coaching experience from the high school, college, and professional levels. Teams will be taught the offensive and defensive schemes so successfully employed by Catholic Memorial the past 25 years.
While we expect the Junior Crusader Football program to be competitive, the emphasis will be placed on instruction, participation, and development. At this level while winning is important, we believe learning the game and player development is more important.
