Please have your son wear a shirt / jersey that is large enough to fit over shoulder pads (so if that means raiding their older siblings closet or yours please do so)

Also please have your sons first initial and last name written on the back of the jersey with a black marker.

If your son played last year they can wear their old jersey from last year to practices.

Welcome to the North Branch 6th Grade Red Tackle Football Homepage
Welcome to the 6th Grade Red Tackle Football information website. 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 over 20 kids on each of 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 will affect their playing time.
Have your son properly dressed. If its cold, dress them warmly, and be sure they bring all equipment.
Control your emotions. Even coaches get excited. There is nothing more exciting than a close football game, we don't want parents getting reprimanded by game officials.
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.
