USA Football Rookie Tackle Info Information:
With reduced number of players on the field and smaller field dimensions, Rookie Tackle was created with input from youth football leaders throughout the United States to improve the playing experience for young athletes. It serves as a bridge-game between flag football and 11-player tackle - and is a part of USA Football's adoption of the United States Olympic Committee's American Development Model (ADM). All of our coaches are USA certified in safety and USA rookie tackle guidelines. To learn more about Rookie Tackle, Click Here.
Rookie Tackle follows The American Development Model, created by the United States Olympic Committee and first introduced by USA Hockey. It serves as a framework for long-term athlete development. USA Football uses a similar blueprint to develop an innovative approach for youth players and coaches. The ADM joins heads up football in USA Football's ongoing commitment to advancing the sport for millions of young athletes across our nation.
