Our Objectives

Members of mattawan youth football will teach our young players the fundamentals of football, along with teamwork and sportsmanship.  If there are multiple teams in an age group, every effort will be made to make the teams as equal as possible and small enough to ensure as much playing time as possible for each player.  League rules state, that each player must play a min. Of 8 plays per half in the game.  At mattawan we will make every effort to ensure each player gets equal playing time.  While this can’t always be achieved, it is still a goal  of our organization.

TEAM AGE GROUPS

3rd & 4th grade ( 7 year olds in 3rd grade, 8, 9 year olds) play together 
5th & 6th grade (10, 11 year olds) play together
7th grade (12, 13 year olds)

8th grade is part of the Mattawan Middle School's football program.
