The Flag Program:
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 introducing Flag Football at our 3rd/4th and 5th/6th 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 or Park High School.
3rd and 4th Grade:
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 Pee Wee participants will also play in Metro East Youth Football Program. The boys will typically practice 4-5 times per week at Oltman Middle School.
The 7th grade 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. Junior Wolfpack Pee Wee participants will play in the North Suburban Football League. The boys will typically practice 4-5 times per week at Oltman Middle School.
The Junior Wolfpack football season begins in late July with the Park Wolfpack football camps. Following the Park Football camps, all players in the 7th grade will participate in pre-season evaluations and a team will be created based on the results of these evaluations for each age level. After teams are created, Junior Wolfpack Football players will participate in both individual and group practices that focus on the development of your football player and prepare them for games against other teams in the East Metro. If your son does not make the team, they are able to then play at the middle school program.
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.
