PAAL Football is a developmental program for pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade. Our stair-step approach to safely teach the game keeps the activity fun for both the players and their parents. The Cadet Division of pre-K->1st grade is a flag league that uses Gamebreaker soft-shell helmets. Their play is on a smaller, 30- yard wide x 45-yard long, field. The Sergeants Division is made up of 2nd graders and is our Tackle-Bar league. They play on the same 30-yard x 45-yard field. The emphasis becomes learning proper footwork to stay ahead of the play, while completing a ‘tackle’ by pulling a styro-foam bar. Players are not taken to the ground in this league. The Majors Division belongs to the 3rd and 4th grade and is a tackle football division that plays on a 1⁄2 scale field. Line play is in a 2-point stance, where the speed of blocking acquisition is most evenly matched, across skill and athletic capability levels. Our Colonel Division is our 5th and 6th graders and is a tackle football league that plays on a full-size field.
Our PAAL Football Season ends in late-October.
