Flag Football & Tackle Football

Junior Delano Tigers 3rd & 4th Grade Flag Football
The purpose of the program will be to teach third and fourth grade students about the game of football and encourage a fun activity to develop their interest in the sport. The 3rd and 4th Grade Flag Football program is seeking parent volunteers to coach in order to make the program successful. We are asking parents to consider volunteering, no matter your background with the sport of football. Without enough volunteers, participation in the program may be limited on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact Chris at the TAC (763-972-3365, ext. 2137, or Chris.Runke@delanoschools.org) if you are interested in helping or indicate this on your child’s registration form.

Delano Tigers 5th & 6th Grade Tackle Football
Delano Community Education, with support from the Delano Lions Club, will be offering a youth football program for the 5th and 6th grade students in the Delano area. The purpose of the program will be to teach fifth and sixth grade students to have fun playing football, develop interest in the sport, and learn the basic fundamentals of the game. Football provides a forum for children to develop respect for oneself and others, build self-esteem, develop physical skills, and experience a metaphoric environment that teaches life lessons and skills.
 
Tuesday/Thursday evenings & Saturdays (Saturday times will vary week-to-week), Aug 29 - Oct 17 | Times TBA
High School Athletic Fields and Central Park, Fields 8 (Dave Z.) & 9 (lighted softball) | #6503-F1
