OUR PROGRAMS

Tackle

The LAFA players and participants are taught to play the game in the right way and will spend many enjoyable hours developing their football skills in a safe and fun environment. Our coaching philosophy promotes a safety first approach while reinforcing the character traits that are important to succeed not only in the game itself but in life. The 2022 LAFA Tackle Football program is proud to announce its creation of the West Chester Shamrocks and its involvement with the IYFL (Independent Youth Football League). The 2022 West Chester Shamrocks will consist of different age based teams - 7U, 9U, 11U, and 13U. The 13U will have one competitive team. The 9U and 11U will have two separate teams - competitive and developmental. The 7U will have one developmental team. The age deadline for each division is July 31, 2022. Competitive teams' practice is mandatory three days a week T/W/Th with games on Saturday. Developmental teams' practice is mandatory twice a week on T/Th (and optional Wed) with games on Saturday. All practice is at our state of the art turf facility, Kelly Field in West Chester. The home games will be played at Kelly Field and the away games will involve travel to our league opponent's field.
