The FOOTBALL program is comprised of youths between the ages of 5 and 13. Our staff is dedicated to making sure everyone has a great experience. We practice and play games at Koon’s Park in Linglestown, PA. Our divisions are divided as follows:
- Smurfs: All 5, 6 and first-year 7 year old players. This is an introductory level, developed for players with no previous experience. This team does not play an official schedule.
- Pee Wee: 7-9 years old
- Pony: 10-11 years old
- Midget: 12-13 years old
Within each level we generally field a Junior Varsity and Varsity team. JV players play on Saturday and Varsity players play mostly on Sundays. Whether a youth plays at the JV or Varsity level, please remember that our primary goal is to teach the game of football and place players at the level that will afford them maximum playing time.
Our CHEERLEADING program offers instruction on cheers, jumps, stunts and tumbling and the opportunity to grow as a great team mate while also gaining self confidence and leadership skills. Each level is determined by age and experience as well as skill. All abilities are welcome!
- Pee Wee: 5-8 years old
- Pony: 7-10 years old
- Midgets: 10-13 years old
