Tackle

Wel­come to SVYFL Tack­le Foot­ball, home of the Hawks! We are proud to have part­nered with Coach Mays and Viera High School last sea­son (2015) as a feed­er pro­gram. It has been excit­ing to see the trans­for­ma­tion from the blue and gold Light­ning to the Green and Gold HAWKS! Viera High School Hawks have served as an incred­i­ble inspi­ra­tion to our youth, and being Hawks offers the youth a chance to feel like they are an inte­gral part of some­thing much big­ger. Last sea­son with sev­er­al for­mer SVYFL play­ers lead­ing the way, the Viera High School Hawks went to the State Cham­pi­onship. Today’s youth have tan­gi­ble goals right in front of them and being a part of SVYFL affords them an incred­i­ble oppor­tu­ni­ty to reach those goals.

The cost for the Rook­ie and Pee Wee lev­els is $100. For ear­ly reg­is­tra­tion, the cost for all oth­er lev­els is $150 and will increase to $185 on June 1. Reg­is­tra­tion is cur­rent­ly avail­able online on this web­site.

We have sev­en dif­fer­ent age lev­els to offer our tal­ent­ed ath­letes:

Junior Rook­ie: league age 6/7
Rook­ie: league age 8
Mighty Mite: league age 9
Pee Wee: league age 10
Ban­tam: league age 11
Junior: league age 12
Senior: league age 13/14

All coach­es and team moms are sub­ject to a thor­ough back­ground check. All coach­es must par­tic­i­pate in the USA Heads Up pro­gram which edu­cates our coach­es to teach prop­er tack­ling tech­niques. As a result of this pro­gram, coach­es are also given vital infor­ma­tion about con­cus­sions and heat stroke and how to best pre­vent them. All of our USA Heads Up Cer­ti­fied coach­es make safe­ty a pri­or­i­ty and encour­age the play­ers to fol­low speci­fic guide­li­nes for prop­er tack­ling.

Tack­le foot­ball is a com­pet­i­tive full con­tact sport. We, as Hawks, are a com­pet­i­tive league, striv­ing to be the best in the coun­ty. Our coach­es are ded­i­cat­ed to their play­ers, teach­ing them foot­ball and all of the life skills that it has to offer, to the best of their abil­i­ties. Sum­mer prac­tices focus on con­di­tion­ing and skills assess­ments. Games take place from August through Novem­ber. Approx­i­mate­ly half of the games will be Home games played at Viera Region­al Park. The Away games are all in Bre­vard Coun­ty. It is com­mon for there to be a sense of “fam­i­ly” amongst team mem­bers, par­ents, sib­lings and grand­par­ents.

Sign up soon, and don’t for­get to sign up for the SVYFL Sum­mer Camp also.
