Grasshoppers League Information
The Grasshoppers division is designed for children 7-8 years of age. This league introduces very basic concepts of football. We are dedicated to teaching children the fundamentals of football in a safe, fun, and educational environment. Alcoa Youth Sports places a special emphasis on individual skills development. We recognize that each child develops at their own pace and our vision is to create a structure that allows kids to develop their skill level over time. Football is a lot more than just winning games. Our football program builds confidence in kids, teaches them to work together as a team and encourages good sportsmanship. Learning football, making friends and having fun is what our program is all about. Spring practice is determined by coaches. They are usually held the last week of February towards the end of March. Fall season generally starts mid-July and the Super Bowl is the end of October.
