Junior Delano Tigers 3rd & 4th Grade Flag Football
The purpose of the program will be to teach third and fourth-grade students about the game of football and encourage a fun activity to develop their interest in the sport. The 3rd and 4th Grade Flag Football program is seeking parent volunteers to coach in order to make the program successful. We are asking parents to consider volunteering, no matter your background with the sport of football. Without enough volunteers, participation in the program may be limited on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact Chris at the TAC (763-972-3365, ext 1202, or email@example.com) if you are interested in helping or indicate this on your child’s registration form. There will be a coach’s meeting for all coaches the week before the season starts. The date, time, and location of the meeting will be emailed to coaches.

Delano Tigers 5th & 6th Grade Tackle Football
NEW – Delano Tigers 5th & 6th Grade Tackle Football will be starting one week earlier this year to give our players more time to develop before playing competitive games. Delano Community Education, with support from the Delano Lions Club, will be offering a youth football program for the 5th and 6th-grade students in the Delano area. The purpose of the program will be to teach 5th and 6th-grade students to have fun playing football, develop an interest in the sport, and learn the basic fundamentals of the game. Football provides a forum for children to develop a respect for oneself and others, build self-esteem, develop physical skills, and experience a metaphoric environment that teaches life lessons and skills.
- New for the 2019 season! 5th & 6th-Grade athletes will play on separate teams. 5th-graders will now play in their own division against other 5th-grade teams in the league and 6th-graders will also play in their own division against other 6th-grade teams
- Coaches are needed! Please contact Chris Runke if you are interested in coaching your child’s team. Chris.Runke@delanoschools.org
Tuesday/Thursday evenings & Saturdays Aug 20 – Oct 15 | Times TBA
