Since 1949 Yorktown Athletic Club's Youth Football program has been teaching the fundamentals of the game to kids ages seven through thirteen.
The current program utilizes the most modern equipment available and incorporates "safe contact" methods for teaching kids how to block, tackle, run, move, pass, and shed blockers and potential tacklers.
Safety is the top priority in this well organized system featuring certified coaches and a new type of helmet covering called a Guardian Cap to further reduce the possibility of injury.
To further ensure a safe learning environment all contact and physical conditioning exercises are closely monitored by Yorktown’s impressive coach to player ratio.
While the work maybe hard the kids' smiles will tell you... This is one fun program.
