Cowboys Football

Cowboys Football


Since 1984

The Calgary Cowboys Football Club began operating in Northwest Calgary in 1984. The club has had over 34 years of continuous operations out of the Brentwood Community Clubhouse, introducing nearly 2,500 young athletes to the sport of football over that time. From the outset, the Cowboys combined a love of sport with the ethics of developing young people as responsible citizens, not just athletes. Cowboys players are fully committed to their support of charities including the Ronald McDonald House, The Calgary Foodbank, The Alberta Children’s Hospital, Shriners and others.

The Cowboys organization has grown significantly over 34 years, culminating in the present day 2017 structure of a total of six teams split between the divisions of Atom (2 teams totalling 60 players) Peewee (1 teams totaling 40 players), Bantam (2 teams totalling 70 players) and Spring Football (1 team with 55 players). Seven teams means, each season, more than 260 young athletes play in a Cowboys uniform. City and Provincial Championships are nice rewards but, as an organization, we are most proud of the fact that Cowboys players learn the benefits of teamwork & striving for goals whilst competing within a safe, supportive environment surrounded by teammates and friends.

Atom Football

The purpose of the atom league is to provide 8 & 9 year old players an opportunity to learn and play football in a fun and safe environment.

Peewee Football

Peewee football develops 10 to 12 year old players in a fun, supportive, and competitive environment, organized by the Calgary Peewee Football Association (CPFA).

Bantam Football

Bantam football develops 13-15 year old players in a safe and competitive league organized by the Calgary Bantam Football Association (CBFA).  

Spring Football

Spring Football players must be in grades 9 to 11 to be eligible.  This is a spring league so as not to conflict with high school football.
