This program is designed to be a fun activity for the kids.  It is also a program that teaches some valuable lessons to the kids.  (Examples:  Good sportsmanship whether you won or lost, team work, responsibility of doing your job, being respectful of their elders, respecting other players, working hard to be successful,  and most important, self respect.)  We do not allow parents or coaches to yell at the refs if they don't like a call that was or was not made.  This is not a WIN AT ALL COST type program. Each player will have a starting position on either offense or defense and will play at least half of the game.  1st and 2nd grade is set up to be entirely a learning experience for the kids. In grades 3 and up we do keep track of wins and losses and at the end of the season we will have a Super Bowl game for each of those levels.

The program is run by the many parents who volunteer their time to coach, ref, work the chains and down marker, and help out at the end-of-the-year banquet.  We encourage all parents to volunteer to help in some way.

Registration is typically in August and

Game play is typically in September and October
