The Middle School program is designed to introduce boys in 5th & 6th grade to the sport. Knowing that this is the first time that many boys this age will be exposed to the sport as players, the focus of the season is to teach each player the fundamentals, terminology, play calling and teamwork necessary to compete. At this level, winning is not stressed although we do try to be competitive. The 7th & 8th grade team is more experienced from having generally two years at the 5th/6th grade level and is ready to begin learning to be more physical and challenged more as a team and as individuals. This team seeks to be competitive and strives for victory in each of its games. Preparing these young men to play at the high school level is the focus of this group, and this is accomplished by introducing them to the system that the high school coaches implement. Our head football coach works closely with the coaches of both middle school teams to develop the program from the youngest players to the oldest.
