Football Signup This Saturday
Hello - Just wanted to let everyone know that we will be having another, in person, signup at Dick's Sporting Goods, Richfield this Saturday, June 25th from 10am-noon.
I’m writing to you with updates on the BAA Football Program for Fall of 2016. Registration is now available online at baaonline.org! We will still have a Dick’s Sporting Goods signup on June 21st, from 6-8pm,if you prefer to talk to us in person!
Overall we will continue the positive momentum in the program moving towards making the game as safe as possible for everyone to enjoy. Again this year we will partner with USA Football and train all of our tackle football coaches on Heads Up Football where the coaches learn techniques and drills that have proven to minimize injury while teaching the core fundamentals of the game. I encourage all curious parents to check out the USA Football website and the Heads Up program.
Please check the website for all of the important dates.
Football Fees: Flag is $75, and tackle $155
Flag Football Update – we will continue our flag football program for kids entering K-2 grade. This is a great opportunity for these kids to get a flavor for the game of football, while having fun running plays with their teammates. We are always looking for parents that want to volunteer as coaches, so let us know if you’re interested. Playbook with practice drills provided, just get out there and have fun with the kids!
Tackle 3rd/4th and 5th Grades – we will continue our partnership with Burnsville which has been great for both of our cities. Focus is teaching good fundamentals which will continue through all their years playing football.
Tackle 6th Grade – we will continue our partnership with Burnsville, but will also be adding in a few games with our other neighboring city, Richfield. We are excited to begin this partnership which would allow us to have 3 cities combined for a wider variety of competition.
Tackle 7th Grade – we will continue participating in the SSYFL, though the league has gone through some changes. Eagan, Eastview, Rosemount, and Apple Valley have decided to form their own league to play each other. SSYFL will now consist of Bloomington, Burnsville, Lakeville North, Lakeville South and Farmington. There is still plenty of great competition and continuing development for our players.
Tackle 8th Grade – we are excited to have brought the 8th grade football program to BAA! For those players that participated in 7th grade BAA football last year, this will be very similar with participation in SSYFL. Development of fundamentals is increasingly important so that we turn great players over to our high school coaches in 9th grade.
Our goal is to give every kid a great experience and opportunity to love this great sport of Football! Help get a friend involved in BAA Football!
Also, this year we will have used shoulder pads for sale at a great price. We will make these available at the evaluations at the end of July.
