If the weather looks questionable what do we do?
For tackle it's a little tricky as the City of Eagan maintains the district fields during the summer and we are encouraged to follow City policy.
Do not assume City policy, rather wait to hear from the league or your Head Coach and know, we will try to communicate changes to you in a timely manner.
The following sizes should be available at most sporting goods stores; just look for these names.
3rd/4th grade = PeeWee
5th grade = Junior
6th, 7th, & 8th grade = Youth

Football Commissioner, Director of Tackle Football Coaches and EAA 6th-8th SSYFL Representative
