The Sunrise Gators tackle football is open to boys ages 5 to 13. This is a full contact, competitive sport. Spring training starts on May 2, 2017. We will be practicing 5 days a week for the month of May. The AYFL carries strict rules as to how many players are allowed to be rostered in each weight division. There is NO mandatory must play rule and players may be cut based on registration and skill level.
Practice begins on July 5, 2017. Each team practices 4-5 days per week to prepare for our locally competitive football games. We play an eleven game schedule starting in mid August and runs through October. In the event we make playoffs or to the AYFL Superbowl the games and practices will continue through until November.
When Do We Play
Games are played on Saturdays, starting with the 8U/Peewee team at 9:00 am, and each weight division game beginning after the previous game ends. Although our program does not guarantee that each football player will get to participate in every game, an attempt will be made to see that all players participate during the course of the season. Adjustments are made by the coaches to improve the competitive skill level required for each team to ensure the safety of every player during the game.
All athletes must be registered with the city before stepping foot on to the practice field. The program does not include the costs of cleats and mouth guards. There are other additional costs associated with the program.
The Sunrise football and cheerleading program is more than just a team, we are a family. So come join the family and be a part of something special!
