TackleBar Football

3rd Grade




TackleBar Football is a safer approach to the game that preserves the tradition and spirit of the sport. Players wear traditional football equipment, plus a TackleBar harness that holds two foam bars across the lower back. The defender must track and engage with proper form tackling technique while wrapping the ball carrier and ripping a bar from the harness. With this approach, players stay on their feet rather than taking the ball carrier to the ground.

Each player will receive a shoulder pads, a helmet and a mouthpiece along with top tier instruction from coaches who are USA Football certified. TackleBar will be for players entering 3rd Grade in the 2021-2022 school year.

Camp will be held at Jennings Field on July 12-15, 2021, from 5:30pm-7:00pm. Camp fees are $40 per player.
