Registration is now open for all our Summer and Fall program offerings. Our summer programs help kids learn the fundamentals and prepare for the fall season. Our summer sessions are an excellent opportunity to bond with teammates, grow one's skill set, or try the sport for the first time.

For the Fall season, please reach out to WYF's email to review season questions, grade-level rules, commitments, or expectations if you have any questions in advance of registration or the football season.

Thanks,

Wilton Tackle Rookie Overview


Overview


Wilton youth Tackle/Rookie teams are travel teams in the Fairfield County Football League (FCFL).  Teams are coached by parent volunteers.  Our volunteer coaches bring incredible passion, knowledge and sacrifice to support Wilton's youth.  Go, Warriors!!!

The FCFL is a development league and its top two (2) focuses are player safety and skill development.  Thus the rules are unique to Fairfield County.  We do not play by classic Pop Warner or other youth football rules.  As an example, there are no kick offs or returned punts in the FCFL.

The FCFL follows USA Football's 'Heads Up' philosophy which is the 'Gold' standard for commitment to player safety.  The FCFL is considered a 'Gold' standard nationally for player safety and skill development.    

Generally at each grade level there are two-three practices per week and one game each weekend.  Young athletes are encouraged to play other fall sports, but a minimum of two practices is required to participate in each game.  

Programs - Seasons

Wilton youth football has (3) seasons:

  • Fall - Aug/Nov
  • Spring - April/May
  • Summer - June/Aug

The fall season is our regular season and consists of eight (8) games plus the playoffs.  

The spring and summer seasons are our skill development time periods.  These seasons include camps, clinics and other skill development opportunities.  A majority of the developmental sessions are led by the High School players and coaches.

The fall season consists of two programs - 

  • Rookie Football - Grades 2* - 4
  • Tackle Football - Grade 4 - 8
*2nd graders must try out for the 3rd/4th grade team
