MUDSOCK YOUTH FOOTBALL

Age Group Programs: We offer two age group classifications for flag and four group classifications for tackle that we divide into the following groups: K, 1st grade & 2nd grade for Flag, Rookie Tackle for 3rd grade, Modified Tackle for 4th grade, Tackle for 5th/6th grade, and a 5th/6th grade travel tackle program.  


Our leagues are primarily focused as developmental Recreation (Rec) Leagues in order to offer football to all participants. We accept players with all levels of skills from beginner to expert at any age level. Evaluations are performed at the beginning of each season to properly gauge a player’s ability and balance our teams for equal levels of skills. Player’s within the Rec Leagues should expect fair and balance playing time with the focus on good competition and skill development.

Eligibility: Any youth (qualifying by Mudsock Youth Athletics' guidelines) who is in Kindergarten through the sixth grades, at least five (5) years of age and not thirteen (13) years of age prior to June 1st of the current season is eligible to play in the Mudsock Youth Football League.
