8–Man Tackle Football

YSF introduced 8-man tackle football in 2013 to allow towns who did not have enough players for a regular football team to play football. These towns’ varsity programs play 8-man football as well, and the youth programs utilize the varsity’s plays. Here’s links to the YSF 1st/2nd3rd/4th and 5th/6th grade 8-man tackle football rules.
