About the League

Boys in rising grades 3-4 are encouraged to sign up for the MPC football Rookie Tackle League for the 2024-2025 season. The boys will play using the USA Football 6-man format in this developmental league. This is full-pad tackle football but with a smaller field and only 6 players per team. The smaller number of players allows for faster and more unique skill development, while learning the basics of the game as well as team chemistry and sportsmanship. All coaches will be certified through the USA Football coach certification program. The program will also use a “universal playbook,” which allows every player to play every position during the season. Practices will be combined teams and done in a format that allows all players to equally work at every position with every coach. Games will be played with different combinations of teams every time. Players will be randomly selected so they get to experience playing with all teammates and for all coaches at every position at some point during the season. MPC will provide game jerseys as well as practice jerseys. Players are responsible for purchasing their own helmet, mouthpiece, shoulder pads, pants, and cleats.

All teams meeting will be held on August 14. Cheer will also have a program parent meeting around this time.

Practices: Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00-7:15 p.m., Sewell Stadium 

Games: Saturdays, 9:00-10:30 a.m., Sewell Stadium 

Note: The season begins the week of 8/19. Game days are Saturday’s 8/24 (Scrimmage), 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 10/5, and the final game is Wednesday 10/9, under the lights!
