TACKLE FOOTBALL


WELCOME TO FO1 TACKLE FOOTBALL

Playing youth football is a fantastic way for children to begin modeling the behaviors of great problem solvers, team players and leaders. It is our mission to help them develop the tools required for spiritual connectivity, physical discipline, mental strength, social dignity and financial responsibility. Join us to experience our commitment to your child’s joy and development through the sport of football. The FO1 football program offers 6 different divisions ranging from K - 6th grade. Each team consists of a minimum of 16 players up to a maximum 22 players. We offer flag football for the Kindergarten and 1st grade divisions and tackle football for the 2nd through 6th grade divisions. The tackle football season begins in the fall with the first game falling during the month of August and the championship game falling during the month of November.

FO1 Football is now an official USA Heads Up Football league.

FO1 Sports is a 501(C)3 charitable organization committed to providing sports leagues that are governed by biblical principles and God honoring standards-presented with excellence and a level of competition that highlights the talents and commitment of area youth. Our directors and volunteers are devoted to providing guidance in the physical, mental, spiritual, social and financial disciplines. Together, honoring our Father, as one.
