New football offering

Earlier this year, we announced that Saint Paul Parks and Recreation would be adjusting our Tackle Football program. We have made the decision to transition to a new 7v7 passing league format for 10U, 12U and 14U, with a focus on passing and other non-contact skills in clinic-style play, as well as inner squad scrimmages. There is the potential for league play should enough participants register. This is a co-ed offering and girls are especially encouraged to get involved. We hope focusing this new offering in a skill-based learning environment will expand football player participation and enjoyment. With the development of this new program, a specific schedule will be available soon, and interested participants should register now so they can be contacted with program updates.
