ARE YOU NEW TO FOOTBALL?


WHY FOOTBALL?

Did you hear about the sport from a friend or neighbor and want to find out more? Did you play youth football, or in high school or college, and now you want your son to learn the life lessons you learned through the great sport of football? 

First, you're in the right spot.  The Jr. Cadets Athletic Program offers tackle football opportunities for youth players in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades (on our 5/6th grade team) and 7th and 8th grades (on our 7/8th grade team).

If you have a child that is interested in football regardless of age, youth or high school, please check out one of our free intro resources located in the right column.  Our site has a tremendous amount of info so please read through the information on the Pride tab. Can't find what you are looking for? Just email or call us and we'll be happy to chat with you. 

Football is a great sport for physical activity, fun, discipline and learning to succeed in a team environment. Don't worry if your kid has never played, as many kids in our program haven't so your child is not at a disadvantage.  A lot of kids have only picked up a football in the last year to two, and every year we add more new first-time players to the program.

How to Kick Field Goals

By Scott Sisson, Field Goal Kicker 10/01/2018, 12:00pm CDT

The bottom line was that ‘control’ became key in soccer-style kicking. Field goal kickers were much better able to ‘feel’ the ball on the foot when using the instep rather than the toe.
