    3rd Grade Rookie Tackle

    Dragon Youth Football (DYF) is excited to partner with USA Football and its adoption of the United States Olympic Committee's American Development Model (ADM).  

    This program is designed to focus on the proper development of young players, increase enjoyment and ensure the sports long-term viability.  

    For 3rd Grade Tackle Football we are excited about our Rookie Tackle Program Through close coordination with USA Football, we successfully implemented a modified approach to tackle football.  This program has been implemented across the Nation with amazing results.  It's a bridge between Flag Football and Full 11v11 Tackle Football.
