Youth Tackle Football

Back by popular demand, Decatur Active Living is fielding 4th, 5th and 6th grade tackle football teams for Fall of 2018.

Players will compete with players of similar age and size. The youth football league we play in sets and enforces strict age and weight  guidelines that reduce the risk and reality of injuries. Our coaches will teach and emphasize proper heads-up tackling techniques along with other safety-focused tactics for playing the game.

Our Goals
We focus on enhancing the self-esteem of every participant while striving to help each child develop fundamental skills, learn sportsmanship and have fun. We believe all players should feel themselves strongly supported by parents, coaches and teammates.
