The sponsorship deal with Under Armour is going to help take Grassroots Spring and Fall Tackle leagues to entirely different levels, but we can't forget that tackle is not for everyone.

Under Armour understand the importance of the game of football and wants to create options for those kids who either may not be quite ready for tackle, or whose parents may want them to get exposed to a less physical version o the game that is still loads of fun and can teach the fundamentals of this great game.  See

Last spring my good friend and brother Lavar Arrington of Xtreme Procision brought an opportunity to me to help develop and field Fall Flag teams for an Under Armour XP Developmental Flag League. XP is on the cutting edge of proper football skill development and safe technique practices. It was a perfect fit for UA and XP to join forces and Grassroots was just humbled to be asked to help. We put our all into it and Year #1 was a rousing success.

Well year #2 is around he corner and there are still a few opportunities for interested kids to sign up for our North and South Divisions at 10U and 12U. The unique thing about the UA Flag League is that it Does NOT require your athletes to choose between Flag and Tackle. The games are only 1 hour and played one night per week!!!

Most of our kids still practice with their tackle teams, but use one night per week to hone their passing game skills and coverage skills during the week. It is almost like a highly competitive passing game practice under the watchful eye of the Under Armour brand.

Official League play will begin on Wednesday Sept 16th. We are asking for any interested clubs, parents, or kids, to inbox me immediately so we can get you plugged in to help Under Armour Protect This House.

I Will........ Will you?

Lastly, if there are any High School or rec clubs who have fields (grass or turf) with lights, Under Armour is looking to secure one more field for the games. If you are interested and can help, please feel free to hit me up immediately so we can lock that in. We don't need the entire field either. Be a great way to get in with one the hottest brands in the world!!!

Believe me, membership does have it's privileges!!!!
