TackleBar Football

3rd Grade




New to ZYFL in 2019, 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 qualified coaches. TackleBar will be for players entering 3rd Grade in the 2019-2020 school year.

Camp will be held at the Zionsville High School Football Stadium on July 8-11 from 5:30PM-6:30PM. Camp fees are $30 per player.
