We recommend for players to begin as early as they & their families are comfortable with. The Scout team - age 7 and 8 years old- is a great learning opportunity for the players, and teaches the fundamentals in a less competitive atmosphere.
What kind of time commitment is Involved?
Football is a larger commitment than some sports due to the safety factors & training that is needed for the players to remain safe and competitive on the field. They must be committed to the preseason and the entire football season. Games are currently held only on Saturdays, (9 weeks depending on the game schedule) Includes UEA weekend and Labor Day.
