Whether this is your first experience in youth football, or you are returning as a veteran, we want your experience in football to be fun, exciting and a great learning experience.
The Colchester Catamounts are part of the Northern Vermont Youth Football League, which has been in existence for over thirty years. The league consists of fifteen teams located from Newport to Montpelier. The Catamounts have a flag football program for players in grades 1-4 and two tackle programs for grades 5-6 and grades 7-8. The Varsity tackle programs play their home games at Colchester High School on Saturdays.
Our Flag program begins with kids in the 1st through 4th grade, with Gold and Green levels within those grades. We will start kids off with basic football fundamentals; they learn proper stances for the positions, line and backfield blocking, running offensive plays, with some passing. They play a 5-3 defense in all games as do the rest of the league teams. Games are played with the standard 11-man on 11-man format. Regular season games are played during the middle of the week, either home at the Den field or away at other town fields.
