Parents of rising 9th graders

If you’ve never been involved or are looking for a way to serve at Hooch next school year, PTSA is a super way! With your student entering into high school, now is a great time to serve by “shadowing” a current position. By “shadowing” this is a great opportunity to “get your feet wet “& aid in the transition for the following school year. We at Hooch have a few members rolling off their chairperson positions at the end of the 2017-18 school year and would love for you to serve.


A few areas to serve in are Communications, Membership, Legislative, Honor Roll recognition & Staff Appreciation. There are many more opportunities to get involved, see the attached form. We cannot offer the programs/ activities to our students without your help. I would encourage you to get involved and have a voice in yours student’s future whatever that capacity might be.

Free Youth Football Safety Clinic For Parents

The Chattahoochee Jr Cougar Football Program has partnered with the Atlanta Falcons to bring all residents a FREE Safety Clinic featuring Former Falcon, Buddy Curry. The clinic will be held on Monday, March 27th from 7 to 8pm in the Chattahoochee High School Cafeteria on Taylor Road in Johns Creek. It's intended to provide helpful information to parents who have children who are considering or play tackle football.


This is a great opportunity for parents to learn about the latest in football player safety and ask questions to a football Master Trainer. The clinic will include instruction on proper equipment fitting, concussion awareness and proper Heads Up tackling techniques. Atlanta Falcons Alumni Player/USA Football Master Trainer Buddy Curry will lead the discussion on safety & Atlanta Falcons Community Relations Representative Amanda Dinkel will speak to how the Falcons organization is supporting youth football in the area.


The mission of the Jr. Cougar Football Program is to teach and encourage good sportsmanship through the promotion and support of football for young people in our community. The program is committed to the development of character, physical preparation and instilling competitive toughness within our players’ mindsets.

Under the guidelines of the Junior Cougar Football Program, the coaches are to instill in their players the elements of fairness, teamwork, self-control, courtesy, and respect for the rules and fundamentals of the game; as well as for the other participants, coaches and officials in the sport.


Player safety is extremely important to us. Our program uses state of the art equipment, tackling techniques and all coaches are Heads Up Football certified. Coaches, Team Parents and other sideline personnel receive specific training and tools for sideline concussion assessment and all players receive concussion baseline testing at the start of the season.


Football Registration is now open for rising 3rd- 8th grade teams. For more information and to register your player, go to www.jr-cougars.org.
