After thoroughly vetting all options, the Bert Bell Memorial Conference and DYW have concluded that aligning ages more appropriately has a greater importance than capping weights at each level. We feel that every child should have the opportunity to play Football with their classmates. The new alignment also allows for players to grow at a natural pace with out fear of needing to play "up" due to body type. 


Our Rookie Tackle Program serves as a bridge-game between flag football and 11-player tackle – and is a part of USA Football’s adoption of the United States Olympic Committee’s American Development Model (ADM).
