Maddogs Youth Football Organization Kicks Off Spring Program

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

The Maddogs season is in full swing with a record amount of players registered this year. The program started in May and runs until the end of June.

Devin Hind, Executive Board Director, stated that, “Because of the high numbers, we had to split our Peewee Division into three teams, and the Bantam Division stayed at one team.

Six-A-Side football is a game intended for Grades 5 through 8 football players. The game is played with fewer players on a smaller field which increases each players opportunity to touch the ball and be involved in the play. Five of the six offensive players are eligible receivers to catch the ball.

Coaches take the time to teach each player a variety of positions in a fun inclusive environment. As an introduction to tackle football the Six-A-Side game allows for a far bigger skill set to be developed for each player. More one on one coaching is available to each player because of fewer players on each team (20).

“Spring season is about having fun and learning the fundamentals of the sport and the players we have are excited and loving every moment they are on the field,” said Hind.
