Youth Tackle Football


Are you ready for some football?!?!?

 

We are now taking registration for the 11th season of Tracy-Milroy-Balaton Cubs football.  The Cubs are a full pads full contact football team for students that will be in grades 4-5-6 in the fall of 2018.  The Cubs practice on Monday and Thursday evenings at 5:30pm starting August 13th and play most games on Saturday mornings (games start on September 8, 2018) and ending in mid-October.  This is football at the most basic level, and fundamentals are the key.  All players will be given the opportunity to play as long as they are healthy, have been attending practices regularly, show up with a good attitude, and have all of the necessary equipment for the practice/game (equipment is provided).

 

Tracy-Milroy-Balaton participates in a league that was formed for this level called the Little Ten Youth Football League.  Teams in the league are: Lakeview, Redwood Falls, Canby, Cedar Mountain, Wabasso, Pipestone, Minneota, Murray County Central, Pipestone, R-T-R & RRC.  T-M-B will be in the East Division of this league so we will have games against Lakeview, Wabasso, Cedar Mountain, RRC & Redwood Falls.  The Jamboree is set this year on October 13th.  We will use the same rules and procedures (in general) at all of our scrimmages / games as we did last year.

 

The coaches for the team will be Shane Erickson (5th year) and Nick Seaton (3rd year) but we are always looking for volunteers to help out at practices and games.  With the number of athlete’s we hope to have, our coaches can’t do this without help from the parents of the players.  Transportation to games is not supplied.  You are responsible for getting your player to the games.   

 

A brief meeting and equipment will be handed out on Thursday, August 9th starting at 5:30pm in the high school cafeteria.  The Cubs Football Fee is $125 and that will need to be paid by Thursday, August 9th when equipment is handed out.  Make checks payable to Tracy Area Community Education. 

 

Registration forms can be mailed to Tracy Area Community Education, 934 Pine Street, Tracy 56175 or brought with to the meeting on August 9th
