Our players join our organization at various points in their lives, but there are some that start with us from the beginning!
We use our Flag Football teams as a true developmental step in the process. At this level of the game, players will learn basic and advanced route running as well as the logic behind the game so they can make situational adjustments in real-time on the field. They will be given the opportunity to explore positions their coaches believe they are most suited for and gain confidence through their growth. Our teams participate in 8U and 10U divisions provided through a creditable flag football league.
The next step is to our 7 on 7 team. Playing on this team will bridge the gap between flag football and tackle. This team plays in tournaments across the valley in passing leagues designed to further develop skill positions such as quarterback, running back, receiver, tight-end, defensive end, linebacker, and defensive backs. There are no linemen, blocking, or tackling. It’s a fun competitive, non-contact way to play football. Players ditch the flags for 2-hand touch which does provide a bit more contact than flag but nothing as deliberate as tackle. It is all passing, played on a 40-yard field plus end zone, and allows scoring both on the offense and defense. Our teams participate in 12U and/or Jr. High divisions depending on the total number of eligible players and divisions offered by the tournament organizers.
The finally step is tackle. We are incredibly proud of our tackle team. Just to reinerate, 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.
