Tackle Football for Grades 5&6 or 7&8 

Season begins with Safe Contact Introduction the week of April 23rd 

Games are on Thursday Nights Starting May 10th and runs until our Jamboree June 23rd at SMF Field

Six-A-Side football is a game intended for Grades 5 through 8 football players. The game is played on a smaller field with fewer players which increases each players opportunity to touch the ball and be involved in the play. Five of the six offensive players are eligible receivers to catch the ball. The game is shoot out format similar to NCAA, CIS, or CFL overtime where each team will gain posession of the ball on their own 35 yard line with an opportunity to score.

The focus of the league is skill development. Coaches will take the time to teach each player a varitey of positions in a fun inclusive environment. As an introduction to tackle football the Six-A-Side game is superior; it allows for a far bigger skill set to be developed for each player. Fewer players on each team (20) ensures that there is more one on one coaching made available to each player.

Saskatoon Minor Football is proud to partner with Football Saskatchewan, Football Canada, and the Canadian Football League to bring you this excellent game.
