The Junior Wolfpack football program is for all individuals in Grades 1-8. The primary goal of our program is to teach the game of football in a way that emphasizes the fundamentals, creates a competitive atmosphere, and allows the players to have fun learning the game. The Jr Wolfpack Football Program is a certified partner of USA Football and our coaches are certified through the Positive Coaching Alliance.
The Flag Program: Grades 1-8
An introductory flag football program for 1st and 2nd grade players with little player to player contact. No pads are worn at this level. We are also off NFL Flag Football at 3rd/4th grade, 5th/6th grade, and 7th/8th grade levels. Our Flag Program will have designated teams along with weekly practices and flag football games in which each of the players will be able to participate. Players in this program typically practice/play 2-3 times per week and compete against other Junior Wolfpack teams at Hamlet Park, Park High School, or in Woodbury.
3rd and 4th Grade Tackle:
This program is divided into a 3rd grade division and a 4th grade division and is 11-player full contact on an 80 yard field. At this level, players are introduced to the Heads UP Football tackling and blocking techniques. They also begin to learn the rules of the game and compete in games played against other teams in the Metro East Youth Football Program. The boys will practice on Monday and Wednesday evenings at Cottage Grove Middle School. Individual coaches may choose to schedule an additional practice during the week as well.
5th and 6th Grade:
This program is divided into a 5th grade division and a 6th grade division and is 11-player full contact football played on a regulation size football field. At this level, the players learn to sharpen their football skills as they get ready to make the next step to junior high football. Junior Wolfpack participants will also play in Metro East Youth Football Program. The boys will typically practice 4-5 times per week at Oltman Middle School.
7th and 8th Grade:
This division is 11-player full contact football played on a regulation size football field. At this level, the players learn to sharpen their football skills as they get ready to make the next step to senior high football. The boys will typically practice 4-5 times per week at Oltman Middle School.
We look forward to seeing each of you on the field this season. Thank you again for your support of the game of football and the Junior Wolfpack football program.
