Washington Demon Gridiron Club is having a meeting at March 7th @ 6:30 pm located in the Washington middle school Auditorium to promote youth football for 3rd – 6th grade. Our goal is to positively promote the game of football by implementing a safe & age appropriate pathway to success.

 

“WHY”:

 

• Always do what is best for kids.

• Create a progression for kids to introduce them to the game of football.

• Appropriately introduce rules and safety equipment at age appropriate levels.

• Develop skills/fundamentals

• Participate in multiple positions, so kids don’t get pigeon holed to certain spots when they are still in such developmental phase.

• Develop self-sustainable league with that will be able to promote youth football in our community for years to com

 

THEY MUST FIRST FALL IN LOVE WITH THE GAME. THEN THEY CAN FALL IN LOVE WITH THE SPORT.
