2020 REGISTRATION

Football   •   Cheer / Pom


We welcome Novi youth in 1st-8th grades to be a part of the Novi Bobcats Organization!  Available openings on football teams and cheer squads will be filled on a first come, first served basis after veteran and legacy registration is complete.  Veteran and legacy registration begins on February 1, 2020 and lasts until February 29, 2020.  Rookie (new participant) registration will begin at 12:01am on March 1, 2020. 

Please note: Bobcat Veterans receive first priority for registration.  Bobcat Veterans are defined as participants who were on the prior season’s roster as of the first game of that season. Veteran status is given to players or cheerleaders who experience a season-ending injury any time following the first day of practice of the prior season. Veteran status is not given to those players or cheerleaders who elect to quit and not finish the season.  If Veterans do not register during their allotted time period, they must register as a rookie.  This may result in being placed on their team's wait list and/or football players not receiving their first choice in jersey number.  Legacy status is given to siblings of Veteran players or cheerleaders.  For more detailed information, please see our Registration Policy

A $50 non-refundable registration fee must be paid at the time of registration.  This amount will be applied to your registration balance. (This deposit is not required for a wait-list application, but will be required if the player is lifted from the wait-list).   Once your participant is assigned to a team and given a roster position, the remaining fee will be due in full or you may elect to enter a payment plan.  Participation fees must be paid in full in order for your participant to receive their game jersey.  Any returned payments from your bank will incur a $25.00 bank fee.  If a payment plan is selected at registration, it must be followed to be in good standings.  100% of payment must be completed by 6/15.   Any late registrations (base on available openings) must have payments completed in accordance with the payment plan and be fully completed by 6/15.
