Tackle Football

YMCA Youth Sports Leagues are designed for children of all ages and stress development of skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and positive competition in a fun environment.  All participants will play equal amounts of time during the games and will have the opportunity to play at all different positions throughout the season.

Sign up for a competitive, yet instructional tackle football league. Your children will learn the proper fundamentals of tackle football, as well as gain valuable playing experience in games. Games will be played on Saturday mornings and Thursday evenings at the C.B. Pennington Jr. YMCA. Each participant will need their own football helmet and pads.

Locations Available:

Age Groups:
This sport is for boys and girls ages 7 to 12 years old.  The children are grouped together in divisions that are broken down into 2-year increments. (The Y reserves the right to adjust age divisions based on the number of participants in a given age group).

Games are held during the week and on Saturdays for length of seven weeks.

Game times will vary.

Practices are usually held a minimum of once per week up to a maximum of twice per week.  Practices are determined by the coaches and are usually held during the week in the evenings between 5:00-8:00 p.m.

We are always looking for energetic moms and dads to be volunteer coaches and help the Y develops healthy confident youth. Please inform the program director if you wish to be a volunteer coach.
