ATOM (Ages 8 – 10 Years)

Spring NFL Flag Football

Our NFL Flag Football teams are open to all players based on age, regardless of gender, experience. Players practice footwork, eye-hand coordination, catching, throwing and other techniques during their weekly practices, and they test those skills on weekend game days. These athletes learn the fundamentals of football movement, terminology, routes and more while learning to work in unison. Our Novice Flag program is designed to develop skills, provide a basic understanding of football terminology, and will allow players to expand their skills. Our flag program is designed to benefit athletes that are interested in moving into tackle football, as well as for those that prefer non-contact.

Practices begin mid April, games begin the first weekend in May and wrap up mid June.

Fall Tackle Football

6-A-Side Tackle Format

The goal of our Atom program is to provide a safe, positive and educational environment for players to learn the fundamentals of football.  The skill of tackling is broken down step by step following safe tackling guidelines so that players learn proper technique.  The goal of the Atom program is 100% developmental.  Winning is a bonus, but it is NOT our main priority.

Atoms enjoy skills fun, an introduction to the game and lots of developmental opportunity in both practice and game formats. Practices are typically from 6pm to 8pm Tuesdays and Thursdays starting August 1. Games are always held on the weekends.  Games are introduced in late August / early September through October and are played against other Atom teams in the Capital District Minor Football Association region. 

Pre-season practices are in June. There is NO football at any of our levels in July – Enjoy the summer.
