Greer Tackle Football

Youth tackle football is a fall program offered by the City of Greer Parks and Recreation Department for ages 6 through 12. Registration takes place throughout the month of May. Our season typically runs August through mid October. The teams are coached by volunteers who enjoy the game of football and teaching the kids the fundamentals of the game.

Each player will attend a preseason weigh in and jersey sizing session. Date and time will be provided to all players.
