Who we are

Founded in 2013, the Bandits were formed as a recreational team that plays at a high level of competition. The Bandits are currently able to accept registrations from players living in the Conner School District. Players are from grades pre-K through 6th grade. 7th and 8th graders graduate to Cougars Middle School Football.

With a focus on football fundamentals, the Bandits also enforce strict guidelines for players to excel off the field in school and community. 

In just it's 6th year, the Bandits have appeared in 15 Super Bowls and won 10, won 6 National Championships, and 3 National Championship Runner Up, and are looking to expand on that number in 2020!

Rocky Top is a Bandits tradition!

The Bandits take their show on the road every year after our league post season is complete. The Battle in Rocky Top is the biggest national youth football tournament boasting on average 250 teams from several states. Our first year was 2013 when we took 1 division. We now take the entire program and have had much success both on and off the field.
