Tackle Football Events and Program Details

2019 KIDSPORTS Tackle Football Program:

Now entering our 50th football season this fall, KIDSPORTS continues to be the largest and longest serving Youth Football Program in Lane County.

KIDSPORTS long-standing association with National Organizations such as the Positive Coaching Alliance, USA Football's Heads Up Program, and the National Federation of High Schools keeps our local organization in line with National Safety and Equipment Industry Standards that are critical to keeping the game safe while offering tremendous development and competitive opportunities.

In continuing to adopt best practices and recommendations from USA Football's Development Model and the American Development Model, KIDSPORTS will offer a 7 v 7 Rookie Tackle Football program at the 5th/6th grade level for the 2019 football season.  

Rookie Tackle serves as a bridge from the KS Flag Football program into the full 11 v 11 tackle football at the 7th/8th grade level.  

Rookie Tackle football allows all players to get more practice and playing time and to experience playing all positions on the field.  Please see http://usafootball.com/rookietackle/ and http://usafootball.com/fdm for more information.
