CCYF 7th / 8th Grade Tackle Football Registration Open
Summer Clinic Reg. OpenUpdatedTuesday May 3, 2022 byBill Sones.
Registration is now open for the CCYF 7th and 8th grade tackle football program. CCYF is entering our 2nd year in the Eastern Mass. Middle School Football League (EMMSFL). The EMMSFL includes several neighboring towns including Bedford, Belmont, Arlington, Winchester and other towns. The EMMSFL is a developmental league with coaches / programs that share the same goal: to introduce kids to tackle football, develop skills, give them some game experience and, most importantly, work to ensure that each kid has a great team-oriented experience. The first season was a great success and we're excited to bring the program back this fall.
The season is expected to start the week of Monday, August 22nd and run through the week of Nov. 2nd. Practices are expected to be held on Monday and Tuesday evenings at CCHS (specific fields and times are TBD) with games on Wednesday evenings for 8th graders and Thursady evenings for 7th graders. 7th and 8th graders will practice together but we plan to field separate teams for games (so that 7th graders won't have to go up against 8th graders in games).
We always stress safety in the program - modeling our practices after the outstanding program being run by Coach Josh Reed and his staff at CCHS. For example, although we will have our 7th and 8th graders practicing at the same time and doing a lot of the same drills, we will not have smaller 7th graders in hitting drills against more physically mature 8th graders.
The cost of the program is $400 for the season (financial assistance is available).
Please feel free to contact Bill Sones at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the program.
