Youth Football

For Young Men Ages 11 & 12 Register

Our 10 to 12 year old youth football league is designed to focus on teaching kids fundamentals in all phases of offense and defense (blocking, tackling, running, passing, catching, stance, hiking, etc.). For most kids this is their first experience with tackle football and we strive for them to have an excellent first year. Our league is open to all players from any school background: online, home school, public, or private. For more information contact athletic director Kim Hayes, who had 3 sons play Crusader football, for more information about our youth football league.
