Youth Tackle Football
Thanks to popular demand, Decatur Active Living is fielding 5th and 6th grade tackle football teams for Fall of 2017.
Players will compete with players of similar age and size. The youth football league we play in sets and enforces strict age and weight guidelines that reduce the risk and reality of injuries. Our coaches will teach and emphasize proper heads-up tackling techniques along with other safety-focused tactics for playing the game.
We focus on enhancing the self-esteem of every participant while striving to help each child develop fundamental skills, learn sportsmanship and have fun. We believe all players should feel themselves strongly supported by parents, coaches and teammates.
