2018 3rd Grade In-House Rookie Tackle Football, 4th-5th Grade In-House Football Details

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS WE HAVE MADE CHANGES TO THE STRUCTURE OF OUR PROGRAM TO ENHANCE THE DEVELOPMENT AND SAFETY OF OUR PLAYERS.  

MOST NOTABLE IS THAT THE 3RD GRADERS WILL PARTICIPATE IN USA FOOTBALL'S ROOKIE TACKLE PROGRAM AND OUR 4TH GRADERS WILL BE COMBINED WITH OUR 5TH GRADERS.  THE 4TH AND 5TH GRADERS WILL BE SPLIT INTO LIGHTWEIGHT AND HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISIONS.

=======================================================================================================

PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

=======================================================================================================

Players are welcome to join Irish Youth Football during the years that they are in the 3rd through 5th grade. Their grade is based on the 2018-2019 school year. 

=======================================================================================================

LEVEL OF COMMITMENT

=======================================================================================================

A higher level of time commitment (4 events per week) is required for Irish Youth Football. This is due to the level of play, the complexity of the offense and defense, and the high level of teamwork that goes into forming a football team. 

Parents of 5th  grade players are required to volunteer at one event during the season.  Opportunities to do this will be labeled "Youth Football" and posted throughout the year at http://www.rosemountfootball.com/dib_sessions.  You will need to create a Sport Ngin account if you do not already have one.  

Please note that if you do not sign up to volunteer before the season starts, a volunteer responsibility will be assigned to you.  If you are unable to fulfill the shift assigned, it will be your responsibility to find someone to cover it.    

Volunteering is optional for parents of 3rd and 4th grade players.  Parents that coach or serve on the Irish Youth Football Board are exempt from the volunteer requirement.

======================================================================================================= 

COST

=======================================================================================================

$120 

Includes cost for game jersey, mouth guard(s), shoulder pads, helmet. Game jerseys and mouth guard(s) are kept by the player at the end of the season.  Helmets and should pads must be returned at the end of the season. For insurance reasons we can not allow individuals to purchase and use their own helmets.
