Delano Tigers 5th & 6th Grade Tackle Football
Delano Community Education, with support from the Delano Lions Club, will be offering a youth football program for the 5th and 6th grade students in the Delano area. The purpose of the program will be to teach fifth and sixth grade students to have fun playing football, develop interest in the sport, and learn the basic fundamentals of the game. Football provides a forum for children to develop respect for oneself and others, build self-esteem, develop physical skills, and experience a metaphoric environment that teaches life lessons and skills.
Tuesday/Thursday evenings & Saturdays (Saturday times will vary week-to-week), Aug 29 - Oct 17
High School Athletic Fields and Central Park, Fields 8 (Dave Z.) & 9 (lighted softball) | #6503-F1

We will be placing one bulk order for the pants through a vendor. If there are any issues with the pants you will need to contact the vendor directly.
