CFCA - Fall Sports

Youth Football (Flag & Tackle)

CF Youth Football offers Flag and Tackle football for children ages 5 to 12 years old (players age determined by their age on November 1, 2018). CF sponsors teams in each of the following four age brackets/programs:

Flag Football (5-7 year olds) Players wear flags hanging off belts around their waists, and ball carriers are ‘tackled’ by their opponent pulling off a flag. Players learn the basic skills of offense and defense, and learn simple plays and techniques. 7 year olds may play either Flag or Tackle football, usually determined by their size and experience.

Tackle Football

Players wear full football equipment, and participate in ‘full contact’ football. Players are divided by age into 3 age divisions: 8 and under, 10 and under, and 12 and under. Teams playing in the tackle divisions play by the same set of rules as school ‘modified’ programs play by, with a few additional rules included for safety, and to speed up games. All tackle levels have weight limits for ball carriers, and the younger levels have weight limits for all players.

Games are played every Sunday from August to October and CF teams play against teams from other local school districts. Equipment and uniforms are provided. Players must provide their own cleats (if desired) and other personal protection. See below for fee details. Questions? Contact Commissioner Jaime Allen, 607-727-6720.
