For the first time ever MVYF will provide a modified tackle program


TackleBar Football is a safer approach to the game that preserves the tradition and spirit of the sport. Players wear traditional football equipment, plus a TackleBar harness that holds two foam bars across the lower back. The defender must track and engage with proper form tackling technique while wrapping the ball carrier and ripping a bar from the harness. With this approach, players stay on their feet rather than taking the ball carrier to the ground.

In the spirit of Baseball and Basketball where rules are modified in the early years, Mounds View Football is able to provide a modified/introductory rule set to focus on developing fundamentals.

In partnership with Metro East Youth Football, the 3rd grade football players will be playing in a special division with East Ridge, Cottage Grove, Roseville and Irondale.
