4th Grade Red

Regular Season 2014

North Branch 4th Grade Tackle Football

This website is designed to keep parents and players informed of upcoming games, practices, and events that will be taking place during the course of the season.

During the course of the season our goal is to teach your child the basic skills of football both on and off of the field. You can expect to see us practice fair, have good morals, and prove to be a good role model for your child. If you have any concerns about this please feel free to contact us and we will discuss it in a closed and adult manner.

The above is what you can expect from coaches, here's what the coaches expect from parents:

Get your player to practice on time: or notify your coach. With 24 players on the teams, and limited practice time, a late arrival or absence can seriously upset a practice and will affect a player's preparedness which for safety reasons could affect their playing time.

Game Day: Arrive 1 HOUR prior to the game. Please limit player distractions during the game. Parents and siblings should stay back away from the players along the sidelines so they stay engaged in the game. Cheering is always encouraged, but please save conversation/discussion for after the game

Have your son properly dressed: If its cold, dress them warmly, and be sure they bring all equipment.

Playtime: We are playing in a league with minimum playtime requirements. Players should expect to be playing at least 50% of the time. Positions of play will be determined by effort, attendance, attitude, and ability. The coaching staff will do their best to rotate players into positions they are interested in playing and excel at. My goal is to build and encourage a team atmosphere where the players understand that we win and lose together as a team regardless of individual position and playtime.
*Please keep in mind that the mintues in a game each week represents less than 20% of their weekly football experience; players get better at practice.

HAVE FUN!!!! None of these players are professional football players…yet! As such, remember that they are out there because they love the competition and the game of football. Let them have fun and let the coaches and officials do their jobs…it will make for a better season all around for everyone.

Coaches coach, Players play, Parents cheer!!!

We hope that you will find the above information useful as well as other features of this website. Please remember to check back often as the site will be continuously updated.
