ARE YOU NEW TO FOOTBALL?


WHY FOOTBALL?

Did you hear about the sport from a friend or neighbor and want to find out more? 

First, you're in the right spot.  We offer Tackle programs at the youth level.

If you have a child that is interested in football regardless of age, youth or high school, have them check out one of our free intro resources located in the right column.  Our site has a tremendous amount of info so please read through the information on the Pride tab. Can't find what you are looking for? Just email us and we'll be happy to chat with you. 

Football is a great sport for physical activity, fun, and discipline. Don't worry if your kid has never played, as most kids here haven't so your child is not at a disadvantage.  A lot of kids have only picked up a football in the last year to two, and every year we add more new kids to the program.

The Modified Game

A majority of America’s most popular sports offer some sort of refined version to allow young players to adjust and develop within the sport in a manner that is appropriate for their size and age level.

In baseball, young athletes play an altered version of the game where players move from tee ball to coach-pitch to player-pitch, while basketball allows younger players to shoot on a lower hoop.

In 2015, USA Football developed a modified version of tackle football designed specifically with younger athletes in mind. The program is rooted in the idea that young players can take a gradual path to learning the sport: from modified tackle football to traditional 11-man tackle.

The Westfield (Ind.) Youth Football League adopted the program for the 2016 season. League director Jake Gilbert, who also coaches the local high school team, believes it’s a solid starting point for young people to be introduced to the game. “There is a natural progression for a young player to move from flag to modified (tackle football) to true, 11-man football,” he said. “Following this pathway is in the best interest of the player and therefore the game overall.”

Whiteland Junior Football is now taking the next steps to join their ranks by introducing a modified Tackle Football league for Kindergarten and 1st Graders. The bridge game to traditional 11-on-11 tackle football features:

New

  • Eight-man on field with 12 players per team
  • Every player starts in a two-point stance (except Center and Quarterback)
  • Players rotating positions every quarter (Except players that exceed weight limit)

Previously Implemented

  • Smaller playing field
  • No special teams
  • All possessions starting with the ball on the 40-yard line regardless of whether there was an interception, fumble, touchdown or turnover on downs, with the football returning to the 40-yard line to start each new drive
  • Two coaches being allowed on the field to organize and quickly provide guidance to their players
