Tackle Football (Grades 3 – 7)

A-Team = Grades 6-7, B-Team = Grades 4-5,  C-Team = Grade 3

Our Tackle Football teams play in the Rochester Youth Football & Cheer league (RYFC) which is made up of 11 other teams from local towns.  This is a competitive league meant for travel tackle football players only.  We do our best to have a voice on the board of the RYFC league, to help put our players on a level playing field with competing teams from other towns.  Please keep in mind that players progress on all different timetables and this can be difficult to manage.  We also don’t have complete control over the teams on the other sideline.  Before signing up for this level of football please be mindful of this and be sure your athlete is ready for tackling contact and competing at a high level.

Safety is our upmost concern for all our players.  Starting a player in tackle football before they are ready can result in them being injured, as well as unintentionally allowing for injuries to their teammates.  If you have any questions on whether your player is ready for this experience, please consider starting with our Advanced Flag program to start the process of getting them ready for travel tackle football.
