Fall Tackle Football

 



The fall tackle program is for 3rd 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 2018 physical to the coach.

Dick's Sporting Goods HQ is excited to announce a new mobile app called GameChanger Team Manager. GameChanger Team Manager will allow coaches to handle things such as schedules, and roster population on one easy to use app. To download this app CLICK HERE!

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 2016 are due for reconditioning before use in 2018. It is recommended that it be sent in by late February 2018 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 ([email protected]).  ASA Football also reconditions helmets -- contact is Ken Lewis at [email protected] 
 
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Helmets which were manufactured more than two years ago are out of date and may not be used if they have not been reconditioned. Note that after 2018, NOCSAE is recommending that helmets be reconditioned every two years.

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.
