Fall Tackle Football

 



The fall tackle program is for 2nd through 8th graders and teams are formed by high school area. 

Participants in the tackle program must register on-line after May 1 and then attend one of our weigh-in & equipment check out days scheduled on several Saturdays throughout the summer.

Generally, there are six weeks of practice prior to the start of the season -- the first week is for non-contact practices with a minimum number of hours of conditioning to be completed by all tackle players prior to starting contact practices. Players may not participate in practices (non-contact OR contact) until registered on-line, officially weighed in at the complex and provided a copy of a 2017 physical to the coach.

Weigh-Ins

All players registered for Tackle Football are required to attend one KCFC Weigh-in/Equipment Check-Out Days at 162nd & Pflumm.

PRIOR to attending:
1) Register online after May 1
2) Pay fees (equipment rental fees must be paid before receiving rental equipment)
3) Check Age & Grade verification list to see if your child is listed. If your child is NOT listed, you will need to bring proof of grade AND age to the weigh in.
4) Print registration confirmation email and bring it with you -- or have available on your smartphone to show registration staff.

2017 Weigh-In Dates(come any time during the hours listed)

IF YOUR CHILD HAS NOT WEIGHED IN, NEEDS TO CHECK OUT EQUIPMENT OR HAS ISSUES WITH EQUIPMENT:

At the Weigh-in and Equipment Day, you will:

If your child is not on the VERIFIED LIST, you are required at weigh-in to show proof of grade (report card, yearbook picture, etc.) and age (birth certificate, hospital record, passport, state issued ID, etc.).

Equipment Information

Rental Equipment:
Equipment may be rented at one of the Weigh-In & Equipment Rental Dates at Heritage Football Complex, 162nd & Pflumm, Olathe KS.

Owned Equipment:
Individuals who own their own equipment must bring it to weigh-in to have the equipment checked and approved by KCFC Staff for use during the season.  

Player-owned helmets should be reconditioned every three years.  Helmets manufactured in 2015 are due for reconditioning before use in 2017. It is recommended that it be sent in by late February 2017 as it generally takes 4-6 weeks. Parents should expect to pay for the cost of reconditioning, tax and shipping. The Riddell contact for reconditioning is Steve Washam (swasham@riddellsales.com).  ASA Football also reconditions helmets -- contact is Ken Lewis at ken126@allsportsamerica.com.. 
 
Even though you may purchase a “new” helmet, check the manufactured date to make sure that it is not due for reconditioning before usage.

Helmets which were manufactured more than two years ago are out of date and may not be used if they have not been reconditioned. 

Returning Equipment:
Players choosing to quit should return their equipment to the KCFC office at 15030 W 106th St. Lenexa, Ks 66215, during regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 9 am to 5 pm). If quitting before games begin, the equipment rental fee will be refunded, less a $5 administrative fee.
