Tiny footballers can now suit up

Provided to the Tribune

South Tahoe Football and Cheer Association is forming a new division this season – Tiny Mites.

The age range for Tiny Mites to play football is 5 to 7 years of age weighing between 35 and 70 pounds. The typical practice schedule for all the football teams is from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for football at the South Tahoe High School Field of Dreams until school starts, but the Tiny Mites will practice three days per week due to their age for 1 to 1 1/2 hours per night.

The Tiny Mites will still be suited with the proper football equipment (pads, helmets, etc.) as the older boys after the first week of conditioning.

A cheer clinic will be conducted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 30 and 31 for $15 per day. A parents’ meeting and welcome back pizza party for all football players and cheerleaders will start at 4 p.m. July 31. Both events are at the Kahle Community Fields. Practice will start from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 8 at the South Tahoe High School Field of Dreams.
