PAC Youth Sports to Include 6th Grade Athletes
PAC is excited to announce that plans have been finalized for the inclusion of 6th grade athletes into PAC’s current youth sports programs! The programs will begin this August for football and volleyball, with basketball beginning in January 2019. PAC is currently working on further expanding our track options before next spring season. Slight modifications have been made to the programs to accommodate the inclusion of 6th graders, most predominantly the restructuring of age groups. For the fall seasons, the sports will be structured as follows:
Flag Football: K-1 grade, 2-3 grade
Tackle Football (8-man): 4-6 grade
Volleyball: 3-4 grade, 5-6 grade; watch for details about a 2nd grade clinic option
The football and volleyball seasons will begin August 13 and August 27, respectively. Flag football will begin the same date as volleyball. Registration for the programs are currently open, stop by PAC to register and for more information. Scholarships are available to assist with registration fees for qualifying participants.
PAC’s youth sports programs are focused on offering opportunity for player development and fun! We want athletes leaving our programs to look forward to continuing the sport at the middle school level and have the fundamental foundation to build on. With these goals as the guide, PAC’s programs are structured to offer the following:
Equally divided teams based on early season skill assessments and input from coaches to allow for positive competitive play through the season
Small teams, meaning more individual attention as well as practice and game play for all athletes
Guaranteed equal game play time for all participants
Consistently scheduled and communicated practice and game times allowing for 2-3 practice/game days per week
PAC works closely with varsity coaches to coordinate our programs and develop coaches manuals, providing drills and coaching strategies to our volunteers in an effort to create continuity between all levels of the programs. We value our relationships with the varsity coaches and appreciate their involvement with our programs. We look forward to playing our part in further developing the sports programs for Pinedale youth!
