6th, 7th & 8th Grades
Jr. Lancer Tackle Football
The tackle level will continue its fourth decade of competition this year. This level is for athletes in grades 6 through 8. Our goal is to field a team of between 20 or more players from each grade. We do not cut players who wish to participate. The coaching staff will be comprised of a head coach and a staff of assistant coaches supported by the Jr Lancer Board of Directors and Joel Nellis, head varsity football coach at BC. Our goal is for the head coach to be a non-parent volunteer. However, parent volunteer coaches are welcome to join the coaching staff with head coach and Jr Lancer Board approval. All coaches will complete a background check and training from both USA Football and the BCHS coaching staff. All players are welcome, regardless of participation at the padded flag level.
The Jr Lancer tackle teams compete in the AAYFL – All American Youth Football League of Wisconsin. The AAYFL is the largest and most respected youth football league in Wisconsin. The AAYFL members hail from several WIAA conferences from Racine County to the south, Walworth County to the west up to Oshkosh in the north. The AAYFL groups programs of similar size and geography to reduce travel times. For more info about the AAYFL please visit: www.aayfl.org
