3rd Grade Modified FAQ

This year MYFA is offering a new league for our 3rd grade players (2018-19 school year). This league will blend the teaching of proper blocking and tackling to our 3rd grade players, without player to player contact. During practice players will be instructed on proper Shoulder Blocking and tacking with tackling/blocking dummies. Games wil then be played as a flag game using those techiques taught during the week, but play a flag based game during the season. This will allow players to grow into wearing equipment, practicing proper tackling and blocking without player to player contact at anytime.
