SYFC Spring 2022 Transition 2 Pads

Registration is OPEN - Program Starts SUNDAY April 24th

UpdatedWednesday February 9, 2022 byGeorge Mullin.

Sudbury Youth Football is excited to announce the popular “Transition 2 Pads” program is back for a Spring 2022 Session
This program is exclusive for families in Sudbury considering the move to youth tackle football and open to all current 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th graders that have yet to play tackle footbal or would like to further develop their skills. This is an opportunity for the athletes to get familiar with playing in equipment. They’ll get the feel of running, blocking, throwing, catching and tackling with helmets and shoulder pads on in a safe & instructional environment with American Youth Football certified coaches.  Participants will be introduced to the concepts of safe tackling strategies similar to a wrestling or rugby take down.
Please note that there will be NO PLAYER TO PLAYER full contact at all during the program.  
If your son or daughter has ever asked about playing the tackle game, wished he/she could be a QB like Tom Brady or dreamed of blocking and catching passes like Rob Gronkowski, here’s a chance to explore the tackle game. If your child loves football but you’re unsure about tackle, this program provides you more information to help make an educated decision that’s right for you and your child. 
Come join us for a short, safe and fun experience this spring!  Coach Condon (5th Grade), Coach Velonis (6th Grade), Coach Jones (7th Grade), and Coach Mullin (8th Grade) will be running the program along with other members of their SYFC Coaching Staff.  Below are the registration details - but feel free to reach out with questions.
