Farmington Youth Tackle Football will begin practices on Monday, August 27. Registration is open until July 20 for 1st-6th graders. Learn the fundamentals of tackle football and build on basic skills.
The Farmington Youth Football Program is possible because of parent volunteers. We rely on parents/fans of each player to help with “running the down marker chains”’ and to assist with picture night. We also need parent volunteers to help coach.
Coaches are required to take the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports training. This is a free, online course offered through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion. Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season. Together, we can help athletes stay active and healthy by knowing the facts about concussion and when it is safe for athletes to return to play.
