Intro to Tackle
Intro to Tackle is a program exclusive to the Academy that introduces young athletes to the game of tackle football through a progression based teaching model without the stress of competing in league play. Our professional coaching staff will work with each individual athlete to develop the core fundamentals that are required to play contact football. Every athlete will receive a Riddell helmet with Riddell InSite Impact Sensors installed, shoulder pads and WFA jersey.
Not only will your athlete learn the fundamentals of safe tackling and blocking, but WFA will drill the proper discipline, focus and respect that is demanded from the game of football. Our goal is for every athlete that graduates our Intro program to be ready for league competition and is a strong, intelligent, hard working player that understands and appreciates the importance of playing the game safely.
The next installment of Intro to Tackle will begin in September of 2017 and run 8 weeks. Practices will be on EANES ISD fields in the evenings during the week. Intro to Tackle registrants will receive a discount on our Fall 7on7 season which will not interfere with each other. This allows our boys to compete in 7on7 on the weekends and work on tackle fundamentals during the week. Cost for this 8 week program is $500 which includes all equipment except football pants and mouth guard. Register today by clicking the button below!
