Tackle Football

This is where the skills your student athlete learned in flag football are put to the test. From the beginner player to the advanced player, this is tackle football at its finest. We have all positions played: Offensive Line, Defensive Line, Quarterback, Receiver, Defensive Back, Linebacker, Running Back, Tight End, and Special Teams. Tackle is played in full pads with special emphasis placed on proper and safe ways of tackling, blocking and solid fundamentals. Student athletes play on the level of their grade. See grade/levels below...

Freshman

Freshmen football includes all players grades K-2. This is truly a modified level, only eight players per team are on the modified 80 x 40 yard field with their coaches so the focus is on learning the basics of offense and defense. Freshman football does not have (kicking/punting) special teams. The only weight limit in this division is for skill position players, which is 75 pounds maximum.
 

Junior Varsity
