Our Tackle football program is open to any child located in Southeastern Wisconsin entering 1st-8th grade for the Fall 2021. Teams are based on grade level: 1st/2nd grade (combined), 3rd/4th grade (combined), 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade.
Every year we make every attempt possible to maintain a low fee for participation. For the 2020 season, the fee structure is under review and will be published prior to April 1, 2021.
Should you have particular hardship, where your player would like to participate but you're unable to pay the reduced deposit, please email email@example.com in confidence. We as an organization believe every player has the right to play and we will make every attempt possible to ensure that every child that wants to play, can play.
Tentative Season Timeline
To start the season, we will host a mandatory coaches & parent meeting, as well as an equipment fitting for the players. Specific dates to be announced soon.
Practices traditionally start the beginning of August, starting with 3 mandatory practices without pads for conditioning. Practice days & times will be determined based on field availability and coach scheduling. Typically, each team practices 4 days per week. Once school starts, they go down to 3 days per week.
Typically on the 3rd Saturday of August each team is required to participate in SEYFA's jamboree hosted by Stateline in Spring Grove, IL. This event includes scrimmage play and mandatory weigh ins.
Games are played on Saturday's starting at the end of August and runs through the end of October. Each team will have at least 7 games. Our league runs October playoffs with a Super Bowl at the end of the season. (Tentative postponement date can go into November)
After the season has ended, we schedule equipment drop off and are tentatively considering an end of season banquet in November.

All teams will maintain primary communications through the TeamSnap website and app tool. We have had great success with trial usage of this platform. It is great for understanding team schedules, communicating with teammates, sharing photos, etc.
Also of note, this is directly tied to your registration, for ease of information entry. If you had a player previously enrolled on this app in prior seasons, there is an option at the time of registration to carryover their information.
