Building Champions and Community
Welcome to the Vail Vikings Youth Football program, where passion for the game meets a commitment to developing well-rounded young athletes. Our program is dedicated to providing a positive and enriching experience for youth in the Vail community, fostering a love for football while instilling values that extend beyond the field.
At Vail Vikings Youth Football, we offer both Flag Football and Tackle Football programs tailored to different age groups, ensuring a developmentally appropriate and enjoyable experience for all participants.
Flag Football (Ages 6-7):
Our Flag Football teams cater to the youngest members of our community, introducing them to the fundamentals of the game in a fun and non-contact environment. We emphasize skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship to lay a strong foundation for their future in football.
Tackle Football (Ages 8-13):
For our older participants, aged 8 to 13, our Tackle Football program focuses on refining skills and introducing more advanced strategies. While competition is a part of the game, our primary goal is to cultivate discipline, teamwork, and respect for the sport. We believe that through tackling challenges on the field, our players learn valuable life skills that extend far beyond their football years.
Vail Vikings Youth Football is not just about winning games; it’s about building character. We instill the following core values in our players:
We teach the importance of self-discipline, commitment, and hard work both on and off the field. Our players learn to set goals and work towards them with dedication.
Respect for opponents, officials, coaches, and teammates is at the heart of our program. We prioritize good sportsmanship, ensuring that every player contributes to a positive and respectful game environment.
3. Fundamental Development:
Starting from the basics, our program places a strong emphasis on skill development. We believe that a solid foundation in fundamental techniques lays the groundwork for success in the long run.
4. Community and Values:
Beyond the game, our goal is to nurture responsible and respectful individuals who contribute positively to the community. We encourage players to embody the values learned on the field in their everyday lives.
At Vail Vikings Youth Football, we are not just shaping athletes; we are shaping the future leaders of our community. Join us in the journey to build a generation of hardworking, disciplined, and values-driven individuals who excel both on and off the field.
