2019 CYO Football

Welcome to the 2019 CYO Football Registration with Holy Spirit Geist Athletics!

Holy Spirit Geist Football has 3 divisions.  There is a 3rd and 4th grade division, a 5th and 6th grade division and a 7th and 8th grade (Cadet) division.   (These grades are based upon entering school for the 2019/20 school year.)  The cost for Boys CYO Football is $135 for the 1st player, $235 for 2 players and $310 for 3 or more children.  The dates are listed below and the link to register is below as well.

All league games will be played on Saturdays or Sundays starting Saturday, September 7th, 2019.

 

3rd/4th grade Football Information

1.       This is a full tackle league, but it is played with only 7 players on the field per team. The offense has three linemen (center and two guards), a quarterback, a receiver on the line of scrimmage, and two backs who can align in various spots.

 

2.       The field is two-thirds the regular width… from the sideline to the far hash. The offense goes from the 40 yard line heading in, so you can play two games at the same time on one field.

 

3.       Every player will have a chance to play both line and back/receiver positions! All players will play either line or back positions for quarters 1 and 3, then in quarters 2 and 4 will switch to the opposite. Again, every kid will get to play both the line and back/receiver positions! Although coaches are encouraged to teach players skills from all of the positions, as before, there is a weight limit for those who can carry the ball. This, obviously, is for safety reasons. Although the “Stripers” can’t run with the ball, they can line up at quarterback and pass the ball, and they can also line up at receiver and catch passes and possibly score touchdowns if they catch the ball in the end zone. Since they can’t run with the ball, the whistle will blow as soon as they catch a pass. The “Big Guys” love being able to handle the ball under this format.

 

4.       There is an offensive playbook already made for coaches, so that all coaches have to do is hold the playbook page up in front of the huddle, and the players can look at the page and run the play. This alleviates spending an inordinate amount of time trying to teach young players an offense, and allows the coach more practice time to teach great fundamentals in blocking, tackling, position technique and ball handling!

 

5.       Since every kid gets to learn fundamentals from every position, and coaches have more time in practice to teach techniques - players are better developed.

 

 

5th/6th and 7th/8th Football Information

 

Both 5/6 and 7/8 CYO football will be regular football rules - 11 V 11 on the field, not modified numbers like the 3/4 division.
