There will be great emphasis on learning the fundamentals of the game, such as blocking and tackling, and the teaching will be very introductory. They will participate in the league including other Macon schools.
Senior Division Tackle Football for Fifth and Sixth Graders – The Senior Division is a great way to develop your skills as you prepare for middle school and high school football. The Senior Division will compete in a league including other Macon schools, and we will continue to emphasize fundamentals as they further develop their skills.
In each league, the coach’s will emphasize teaching the game in a positive way, and each player on the team will participate in all games and practices. MDS varsity football players will be coaching all teams. Practices will primarily be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00–7:30PM, but some games will be on Mondays as well. We will try our best to avoid any Wednesdays and/or weekends.
