Youth Tackle Registration Coming Soon

The YMCA’s tackle football program offers area youth the opportunity to play organized, recreational full-contact football and focuses on skill development and team building.

Involvement is the central focus with every player guaranteed to play at least half of each game.  The season will consist of APPROXIMATELY 6 games (dependent upon weather) and up to two practices a week (held @ coaches’ discretion).  


Registration will be held on Monday, August 18 from 3:30 to 6:30 PM in the Kids Center Basement.  Sizes & measurements will be taken so your child MUST be present to register.  Scholarship Deadline: August 11th (NO EXCEPTIONS).  Only scholarship letters - showing amount owed – will be accepted at Registration.


1st – 2nd Grade (80 lbs & under may carry the ball)

3rd – 4th Grade (120 lbs & under may carry the ball)


Players are required to weigh on Monday, August 18.  Players who do not attend the official YMCA weigh-in will be considered a restricted player in regard to advancing the ball.  Weight measurements taken at official weigh in are final and no additional weigh-in will be required or granted.


The Y will supply all equipment (excluding mouth guards & cleats/sneakers).  Participants MUST wear mouth guards and either sneakers or rubber-soled cleats.


Practices are tentatively scheduled to begin the week of August 25.  Teams will practice up to twice a week for 1.5 hours/practice.  Games will begin with the Alliance Coal Bowl on Saturday, September 20.  Games at the YMCA will be played on Saturday AND Sunday afternoons.


All YMCA coaches are volunteers and we can always use more coaches!  Head Coaches will be notified of the Coaches’ Meeting by the Senior Director or Sports Director.  WE DO NOT GUARANTEE REQUESTS.
