8th Grade Youth Tackle Football
The Missouri Wolverines Youth Football Program offers Tackle Football for 8th Graders in the Kansas City Missouri Metro Area. We are currently accepting players for the 2017 season. We play both league games as well as pre-season and post-season tournaments including show case games where we play teams from out-of-state which gives our players a great experience to be exposed to other teams and talent.
Our participation fees may vary from other teams as we include everything within our fees... we don't just charge a participation fee then make you go buy or pay extra for your helmet, shoulder pads and jerseys. We include league games and equipment within our player participation fees. For tournaments, we do team fundraisers to help cover the costs to make everything affordable for all families. Our Participation Fees cover Certified New or Reconditioned Helmet Painted with our colors, New or Reconditioned Shoulder Pads, Blue Game Jersey, Blue Game Pants, White Game Jersey, White Game Pants, Practice Jersey, Belt, and mouthpiece. If you still have questions, please contact us at 816-379-3692 or via email at [email protected]
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PLAY ON THE 8th GRADE TEAM?
The fees for the Missouri Wolverines Football Club is based on several factors including, but not limited to, the number of games we play, the gear we provide our players, the facilities we utilize and the experience we provide our teams. We do require our players to participate in Team Fundraisers as well to offset tournaments and team costs. Visit our participation fees page for a more detailed explanation of fees.
AGE AND GRADE REQUIREMENTS?
To play on our 8th Grade team a player needs to be 14 years old or younger as of August 1, 2017 and in the 8th Grade. We do not allow players in high school to play on our team.
Our 8th Grade team DOES NOT have weight limits for ball carriers or for lineman.
HOW MANY GAMES WILL THE 7th GRADE PLAY?
The 8th Grade will have both Home & Away Games. Our Home Games and outdoor practices will be held at Park Hill High School in Kansas City Missouri near Zona Rosa. We will also compete in local and regional tournaments held in the preseason and post season. The 8th Grade Team will participate during the regular season in the Champions Football League and also compete in several tournaments both locally and regionally which will expose our players to some of the best competition in the region. This ensures our players the chance to measure up against the type of players they will compete with on the high school level. This schedule helps teach our players the value of preparation and off-season training so when they take that step into high school it becomes second-nature to them; as many high school programs are asking athletes to train on a year-round basis.
This year our 8th Grade team will play in both regular season and tournament games. Our players get the opportunity to play more games than other teams, which allows for double the progress as a player.
Our first official practice is Monday July 24, 2017. We practice 4 nights a week Mon - Thur and the first 3 Saturdays in August.
During September and October, practice is 3 nights a week. Practices are at Park Hill High School in Kansas City Missouri by Zona Rosa
