Hardin Northern will be joining a new developmental football league for the 2020-2021 season. The league has teams from Kenton, Ada, Hardin Northern, USV, and Riverdale. The ages range as follows:
K-3 – Flag
3-4 – Padded Flag/Tackle Bar
5-6 – Tackle Bar/Rookie Tackle
There will be a progression in contact while teaching the kids how to play the game safely and have a great time!
There is room in grades 3-6 to move kids up and down based on the players readiness for contact and parent preference. We want to allow kids to grow their skills and build confidence not have a bad experience.
Games will be played on Sundays in Kenton and will last 6 weeks. Flag football will have practice once a week and there will be a practice session with varsity players from each school on rotating weeks before the games.
If you are interested in playing please email Brett Halsey at firstname.lastname@example.org for students in grades K-3 or private message Hardin Northern Youth Football.
For students in grades 4-6 please email Rich Guinn at email@example.com or private message Hardin Northern Youth Football.
The goal is to keep kids interested in football so they become Friday night football players for Hardin Northern.
There will be an informational meeting this summer to share more information.
