JR. TORNADO YOUTH FOOTBALL
Be a part of the Lancaster City/Township youth tackle football program. Our emphasis is on learning, playing, and enjoying the sport of football safely, while also fostering sportsmanship, teamwork, and self-discipline. McCaskey’s football coaching staff will be training our volunteer coaches in accordance with the skills and standards used at the high school level.
Our teams will play in the Red Rose Midget Football League in the B, C, and D divisions (ages 7-12 as of 06/01/2023). Practices begin the first week of August. Practice will be at the McCaskey Practice Football Field, with home games in the McCaskey Stadium.
Our goal is to provide a safe and enriching environment for children to learn and grow through play and for families to grow closer by spending quality time together. Our family programs give parents the chance to participate with their children, rather than simply watching from the sidelines as their children have fun. We know that children whose parents are actively involved in their lives will grow up to be happier, healthier adults.
Our staff is carefully chosen and trained. FBI and state police criminal background clearances, child abuse registry clearances, first aid, and fire safety training, and physicals are mandatory. Program directors have bachelor’s degrees, with at least 30 credits in education. All staff members are required to attend 24 credit hours of professional development each year.
