USA Football’s Rookie Tackle is a small-sided tackle football game
designed to be implemented as a bridge game between flag football
and 11-on-11 tackle within youth football leagues and clubs across the
country as a child’s first experience to tackle football. USA Football
believes that an age-appropriate and developmental approach to the
game driven by high-quality coaching will improve athlete enjoyment
and skill development. By modifying the game at younger age groups and
educating coaches, commissioners, officials and parents on the game
adjustments, mechanics and skills, we can create an age-appropriate,
athlete-centered understanding that leads to a better experience.
NW Premier Sophomores play traditional 11 on 11 football.
