2020 3rd Grade Rookie Tackle, 4th-5th Grade In-House Football Details

Irish Youth Football 3rd Graders participate in USA Football’s Rookie Tackle Program.  4th & 5th grade is combined and players are divided into Lightweight and Heavyweight Divisions

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

PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

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

Players are welcome to join Irish Youth Football during the years that they are in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade based on the 2020-2021 school year. 

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

LEVEL OF COMMITMENT

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

A higher level of time commitment (up to 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. 

Volunteering is optional for parents of 3rd -5th grade players.  Opportunities to do this will be labeled "Youth Football" and posted throughout the year on the Rosemount Football website at http://www.rosemountfootball.com/dib_sessions.  You will need to create a Sport Ngin account if you do not already have one.  Parents that coach or serve on the Irish Youth Football Board are exempt from the volunteer requirement.

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

COST

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

$120 

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