Welcome to the Hillgrove High School football program's website! Our program is dedicated to providing a supportive and challenging environment for our student-athletes, both on and off the field. We believe that football is about more than just winning games - it's about developing character, fostering teamwork, and instilling a lifelong love of the sport. With a talented coaching staff and a roster of dedicated players, we strive to achieve excellence in every aspect of the game. Whether you're a current student-athlete, a prospective recruit, or a fan of high school football, we invite you to explore our website and learn more about what makes Hillgrove football a truly special program.

It is our sincere desire, as a community, to continue to build upon the incredible legacy and traditions here at Hillgrove while empowering the success of our student-athletes and coaches. We know in our Hawk hearts that our program has tremendous potential – and we know it will take ALL OF US to realize that potential.

Posted 10 April 2024

Where Does Your Registration Fee Go?

ALL players receive much more in value than the actual cost of the fee. The fee covers only a very small portion of a player's participation and should be viewed as an investment in your player's passion for Hawks Football.

Cobb County does not fund athletic programs within the schools, which means that our program relies upon player participation fees and is even more heavily reliant upon the Grid Iron Club to grow and expand the Hillgrove Football Program. The types of things that registration fees go to pay for are:

  • Capital Investments/Facilities maintenance and improvements
  • Helmets, pads, game, and practice uniforms
  • Weight Room and equipment
  • Video equipment, technology, and services
  • Training equipment, sleds, and other field equipment
  • Team Meals/Food/Drinks
  • Trainer and first responder presence at all games (county requirement)
  • Transportation
  • Scholarship programs
  • Coach stipends and clothing
  • Janitorial service
  • Swag

Also worthy of note are the costs of outfitting a Hawks Football Player:

  • Helmet - $375
  • Helmet Decals - $ 12
  • Mouthpiece - $3
  • Annual helmet reconditioning - $80
  • Practice Jersey - $17
  • Shoulder Pads - $350
  • Game Jersey - $220
  • Belts - $15
  • Game Pants - $130
  • Knee Pads - $10
  • Practice Pants - $20
  • Workout T shirt and shorts - $30
Total Cost: $ 1262

As you see, the registration fee is just a portion of the cost for each player. Fund raising is such a necessary and important part of our program. Please help push our fundraising efforts out to the community, as well as helping us find business sponsors so that we can continue to be one of the Cobb County football programs with the lowest registration fees.

The Hillgrove Grid Iron Club's purpose is to promote parent/student involvement: coordinate all supporting activities, including feeder programs; encourage attendance at football-related functions; provide those services, facilities, and equipment which the school does not provide; ensure recognition for the football program and its athletes and increase the enjoyment of the fans at all football activities at Hillgrove High School

Being a member of the HGIC means you are a committed member of the Hawk family. You, the parents or guardians of our student-athletes who become members, ultimately determine the priorities for the program. Members decide how we budget and spend our income. You help us ensure we are always acting following our vision of "enabling the success of our student-athletes and coaches." A single general membership entitles the individual or family to one vote on those matters which members shall be called upon to vote, to hold office, and to all other rights and responsibilities of membership in the HGIC. HGIC meetings are open to all members.

Please see the Handbook for additional details.
