FAIRFIELD YOUTH TACKLE FOOTBALL PROGRAMS

Overview

The Fairfield Youth Football Giants organization offers 2 programs depending on grade for padded football.  Tackle for 5th-8th Grade and Modified Flag for 3rd and 4th Grade.  All of our programs are focused on character first, and then, athletic development of Fairfield's young athletes.  Our goal is to teach the fundamental concepts and techniques of football, promote sportsmanship and adhere to a safety first approach. All of our coaches are certified through USA Football which requires extensive football fundamental course work and safety training.  We require all coaches to attend continuing education clinics as well as CPR and First Aid certification.  Our board maintains strict oversight and quality control to ensure your young athlete has the opportunity to learn, safely compete and take pride in their football development path.

The Fairfield tackle program competes in the Fairfield County Football League (FCFL) which is comprised of schools in the FCIAC conference.  Games will be played on either Saturdays or Sundays and any away games are within a short drive.

We tap into the resources from our local high school football programs when possible and benefit from the community outreach.  The vision is to further develop Fairfield's football pride and teach them that game of football that rewards those who commit to it like no other sport.

USA Football's Heads Up Program Was Adopted by FCFL in 2013. For complete details, click here.

2024 Spring Tackle Clinics

Tackle Clinics are available to all of our current 4th-8th graders in our community. The focus will be on refreshing players skill set from the previous season while also providing a great opportunity for potential new players to try tackle football in a full contact/controlled setting. This will provide a base of knowledge and comfort should they decide to try tackle in the fall, as well as a chance to get to meet their coaches and teammates (Grade 8 will get to meet High School coaches). A mix of positional, conditioning and team drills is an important springboard to the fall. 

Division/Schedule

Rising 5th & Rising 6th Grade: Sunday evening’s

Rising 7th & 8th Grade: Monday evenings

Tackle Programs will start Sunday 4/8…off for spring break…then back the following week and end 5/19-5/20. Fields and times will be announced once fields are assigned and will typically work with Spring Sports like Baseball and Lacrosse to avoid conflicts when possible.

Spaces are limited, so please register your player as soon as possible. Once we have reached capacity, we will run a 'waitlist'.

Modified (MTF) is our fastest growing program for our current 2nd and 3rd graders (rising 3rd/4th in fall). Players play full pads against area towns with a flag pull still being the tackle. The spring clinic will allow these ages to practice football skills and agility while getting used to wearing a helmet and shoulder pads. These are non-contact clinics where all work is done with bags. If your child can't get enough of football and is already looking forward to the fall season, it is a great way for them to ease into the transition of fall 2023 Modified.
