ROOKIE RACCOONS FOOTBALL - 5TH & 6TH GRADE

Offered through the Oconomowoc Park & Rec ...

The Rookie Raccoons football program is dedicated to building fundamental football skills as players transition from flag to full tackle. Our focus is on teaching fundamental football and life skills that prepare our student athletes for success on and off the football field.

Rookie Tackle, a small-sided version of the sport, serves as a bridge game between flag football and traditional 11- player tackle. USA Football, a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), recommends Rookie Tackle as an introduction to tackle football. Rookie Tackle builds upon the skills gained in flag as part of a player pathway in alignment with the USOC’s Development Model. By playing Rookie Tackle in the year(s) between flag and 11-player football, you are able to:

  • Increase teams’ coach-to-player ratio
  • Play in an age-appropriate space
  • Decrease the cognitive load on individual players
  • Lessen the number of players on the field
  • Focus on skill development
  • Foster a fun, positive experience for young players
