NEW Programs for 2019

In conjunction with the JrGAC league we've added 4 Grade levels of Fall Football offerings expanding our Fall Football program to 1st through 8th Grades. Added programs include:

*  1st Grade Fall Flag Football
*  2nd Grade Fall Flag Football
*  3rd Grade Fall Flag Football
*  4th Grade Fall Modified Tackle Football

Flag Football in 1st to 3rd Grades will have the same rules and game play as our current Spring Flag programs. 7 on 7 rules allowing for exposure to the game in a fun setting.

Modified Tackle Football was developed by USA Football as a transition year from Flag to Tackle football. It eliminates kicks and full tackles and reduces the field to 40 yards long and width to the inside of the numbers while playing 8 on 8. Helmets and shoulder pads are worn but no padded pants. Play is stopped with "Thud" tackle which is contact with wrap up and no takedown. 

Along with the JrGAC league we have adopted this program lineup which allows better development of youth in the game and allows parents and young athletes to experience the game without full contact until 5th grade. The transition from Flag to Modified Tackle to regular Tackle was developed and pilot programmed by USA Football over the last several years to improve the game and provide age appropriate development.
