TACKLE FOOTBALL CLINIC

K-2nd Graders

This clinic is designed to teach participants the beginning fundamentals of tackle football in a safe format. Each day will consist of stations of offensive and defensive skill development for the first hour and then finish each day with a 30-minute non-tackle game to incorporate their skills. Participants will be placed on teams and each team will go from station to station together and play the games together. Volunteer coaches will be needed to help go through stations and games at the end. Enroll based on 2021-22 grade level.
