USA Football
7/8 Tackle

7/8 Football is the most competitive program in Patriots Youth Football and serves youth in grades 7-8. At this, the highest level in our program, we build upon and expand the playbook and fundamentals learned at younger levels by teaching a more diverse and sophisticated level of offense and defense which will enhance the player’s football experience. Many of the general philosophies of practices and playing time for the 5/6 program apply here. We are committed to giving all youth playing time in games. Playing time is dependent on conditioning, player commitment, fundamental knowledge of the sport and safety. Player position is governed by player weight which directs coaches in positioning the players. Players graduating from this level will have sound fundamental skills, be in top physical condition and should be ready to play at the freshman/junior varsity high school level.
