The process is the product.

Warriors Youth Football began in 2017 and is growing each year.  Offering both flag football and train-to-play tackle football options, the Warriors Youth Football is an in-house program designed to provide boys and girls with an enjoyable and competitive learning experience, under the close supervision of Head Coach Jeff Hartings, members of his coaching staff, parent volunteers, and members of the varsity football team.   Players are not expected to know all the rules and fundamentals. Participation is open to non-WC students.

GRADES 5-6 | TRAIN TO PLAY TACKLE FOOTBALL PROGRAM | FALL 2022

SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING, FOOTBALL SKILL DEVELOPMENT, AND FLAG FOOTBALL GAMES

The WC Warriors Train to Play Tackle Football program is for youth interested in playing competitive tackle football in the future.  Youth will progressively be taught the basic fundamentals of the tackle football game, which differs greatly from flag football from the perspective of learning to properly block, tackle, hit, and avoid getting hit.  Tackle football is a contact sport that can cause injury but those injuries are proven to be greatly reduced when properly taught these skills.  There will be two practices each week and an inter-squad game on Saturdays.  This is not a travel team.  Coach Hartings believes there are too many uncontrollable factors in travel leagues to ensure the greatest level of safety possible for all participants.  Our goal is to create a safe, fun, and encouraging environment for youth to learn to play the most popular sport in America.  Space is limited so sign up as soon as possible.

Ages: Boys; Grades 5 and 6; Consideration will be given to fourth graders. Please contact Coach Hartings. Open to the Community

Dates:  August 27-October 15, 2022

Times: Tuesday and Thursday Practice at 5:30 p.m.; Saturdays InterSquad Games Time TBA

Location:  Thomas Field on the Upper School Campus (1485 Lazelle Road, Westerville, OH 43081)
