THINGS TO EXPECT FROM NYS WEST!

Prior to the start of the season, a representative will schedule to attend one of our practices to certify each player. You will need to bring your original birth certificate for review, school id or demographic page from the school as proof of grade, and a photo head shot will be taken of each player.  We will communicate this date once we have arranged it with NYS West.

Spring Season Details

We will play in 2 divisions; the 12U team for ages 10-12 and our Middle School (MS) team for 6th-8th grade.  6th graders have the option of joining our 12U team or the Jr MS team. Our teams have players from all over the valley so we are seeking a practice in Tolleson as a neutral field and we will continue to play our seasons through NYS West.

What if my kid has never played before?

That's OKAY! Some of our players have been developed through our entire system while others have come with little to no experience and they are still thriving. Our coaches are tough, but they are also teachers. Not only are they shown what to do, but they are still taught why each component is important. They are taught to be a team. No one is above the group, and doing your part is the only way we all succeed. We teach our values through our G.R.I.T acronym. Our players transition from our program truly prepared for their future high school endeavours! Our teams participates in the 12U and Middle School divisions (6-8th grade) provided through a creditable tackle football league.
