Rookie Tackle 8-on-8 (Offered to 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders)
These players will register on the St. Francis Xavier Website and play Rookie Tackle 8-on-8 football in an independent league. Rookie Tackle was developed by USA Football to be a bridge between flag football and traditional 11-on-11 tackle football. It is played on a smaller field with less players. St. Francis Xavier will host football practices and home games at their St. Francis Xavier fields in Cross Plains. Games will be played Saturday mornings.
