Fall Tackle Information
Here is a brief overview. More information regarding schedule and locations will be emailed to teams once all the teams and coaches are established.
Practices start July 29. The first week will be M - F, 6 - 8 pm. All conditioning, no gear. The second week of practice drops down to M - TH. Once school starts, practices will be T, W and F. After players complete 10 hours of conditioning and have all their paperwork complete, they’ll be eligible to receive their gear. We completely understand that families have vacation time planned, or even day trips here and there. Please let your coach know if your player will miss practices so we can plan accordingly.
To ensure player safety, American Youth Football mandates that players have 10 hours of conditioning without pads prior to the start of padded practice. Players will not be able to practice in pads until they complete 10 hours of non-padded instruction.
Games will be held once a week, typically on Saturdays or Sundays. Game schedule comes out in late August.
There is a Central Mass Jamboree where players get officially certified to play. Our Jamboree will either be August 17 or 18. This officially kicks off the season. If a player misses the Jamboree, we can make arrangements to get the player certified with a coach and parent.
Remember to shop the Dick's 20% off weekend July 20 and 21. NYFC earns a small portion of sales when folks bring the flyer. 20% off applies to most everything in the store. Great time to stock up and even do a little shopping for yourself!
If you haven't signed up yet, please sign up ASAP so we can confirm team counts. We are hoping for single grades when possible, but it all depends on registrations when we are forming the teams.
