Division & Grade Guidelines
Players of all abilities can learn and play tackle football. We believe in maximizing the level of competition a player experiences, as well as developing their talent with respect to their current skills and abilities.
This is why Alliance offers different teams, with respect to a players grade and skill level. We understand many players have little to no experience playing tackle football, while others have several of years of experience under their belt. This is why we offer various team choices that focus on a players specific experience and skill level. Placing players on the appropriate team allows them to maximize their growth as a football player and obtain the maximum amount of game time experience possible.
Alliance offers teams for players between 3rd through 8th grade. A players grade is determined by the current school year. Parent’s can elect to have their players play one level up. Alliance teams are comprised of teams that play locally, as well as nationally with respect to Alliance “travel” teams. Please reach out to us if you would like to know more about our various team options.
