The Kids, Incorporated Tackle Football program is open to fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. The fall 2023 season will begin on Saturday, September 9, 2023.
Proof of Eligibility: At any time during the season, Kids, Incorporated may request proof of eligibility (grade) for any participant.
The fee for tackle football is $125, which includes:
Kids, Incorporated provides each child with a helmet, shoulder pads, and pants with pads, all of which are to be returned as soon as the season ends. Mouthpieces will also be issued, however, we won't need these back! Once a team has a total of 15 paid players (complete with signed parent waivers), the coach may submit the team roster to our office and signup for an equipment checkout time.
Each Coach is provided 2 footballs and a tee.
For safety reasons, Kids, Incorporated implements a restricted position policy for its tackle football program. Players will be weighed one time only. This occurs during equipment checkout.
Restricted players may not:
Restricted players will be allowed to participate on the punt team, punt return team, kickoff team, and kick return teams, but may not advance the ball (except in the case of a fumble).
The restricted position policy applies to players as follows:
NOTICE TO ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS: At any time prior to, or during the season, Kids, Incorporated may request proof of eligibility (grade and/or age) for any participant.
Also, a parent/guardian must list the school where the child currently attends, not where they "prefer" to play. Our teams are formed based upon where children attend school. Any deviation from this guideline must be approved by the Director of Programs.
The 2023 Toot'n Totum Food Bowl for our 6th grade tackle football teams allows each team the opportunity to get to play one extra game at the brand new West Texas A&M University Buffalo Stadium. Spectators are asked to bring $1 or one can of food to be donated to the High Plains Food Bank.
