Bowie Bulldogs Football
Serving Ages (Ages 5-15)
The Bowie Bulldogs One provides an unlimited/select division under the Bowie Bulldogs Football Program. We use this platform to expose players to advanced competition, increased recruiting exposure, travel opportunities, and as the precursor to post season tournament and all-star opportunities.
Bowie Provides an opportunity to compete in the Mid-Maryland and GYFL leagues. Both leagues are highly competitive and gives players the ability to showcase their skills.
The Bowie Bulldogs are the reigning 2016 Mid-Maryland Champions
We Focus on the Three I's
3 Times MD Crab Bowl South Champions (2014-Present)
Many of our athletes are nominated to represent the MD Crab Bowl South Team. Our Program is a Direct Pipeline to All-Star Games throughout the East Coast and continental United States.
We are the newest FBU franchise in the nation and are proud to represent the Maryland Metropolitan Region and beyond (Pennsylvania, Delaware, etc.) in the 2017 Football University National Championships in Naples, FL. The 2017 FBU National Championship is set to roll south to sunny Naples, Florida this December! The #PathToNaples begins December 2 at eight super regionals, and concludes in football paradise with the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals in Naples. Out of the 32 teams who are about to begin their journeys across 8 different regions of the USA, only 8 will advance to FBU Championship Week in Naples. These teams - eight from each bracket (6th, 7th and 8th grade) - will have the chance to prove that they are among the best in the tournament and be crowned National Champions.
Safety of the athletes that participate in our tournament is paramount above and beyond all else: current age and grade rule ensures a level playing field and enhances safety. This rule addresses the number #1 concern from parents and coaches regarding the potential for older athletes playing against much younger athletes and vice versa. This goes against safety and establishing a level playing field for all athletes.
Unfortunately this rule will exclude a small # of aspiring and former National Championship players but improving the safety and equality of the National Championship tournament cannot be overlooked.

These are highly competitive teams and not designed for all newcomers (we have other alternatives for this type of player).
Workouts will include one weekend session (Saturday, time TBD) and one weekday session (day and time, TBD). We will place our kids in the Maryland Metro Football Alliance DMV Passing League to help measure their progress and expose them to different competition.

7 on 7 Leagues are one of the ways to help expose youth to potential High School Programs. Bowie has consistently fielded one of the most successful 7 on 7 teams in the area. Teams at all age levels have yielded success in each league they have participated in. We work to ensure that students are taught skills that will transfer into the fall league. With offensive and defensive similarities to what they will see in fall tackle.
Partnering with Oh Boy Sports, the Bowie Bulldogs participated in the Oh Boy Sports 7 on 7 passing league during the month of and May
