Fall Youth Football

Fall Youth Football

Recreation's Youth Football Program is about more than touchdowns and tackles; it's about teamwork, friends, and fun. Youth football teaches kids valuable life lessons while introducing them to America's favorite sport. 

All tackle football coaches are certified by USA Football "Heads Up." Heads Up Football is the safer way to practice and play. USA Football has worked with leaders in both medicine and sport across the country to create a full-featured program addressing key safety issues and ensuring every coach understands how to implement the program. 

Make lifelong friends, learn important life skills, stay active, and have football.
