DC West Youth Football

DC West offers 4 Youth Football opportunities and is divided into two categories of play: Flag Football and Tackle Football. All programs are designed for kids to develop a love for the sport and to prepare them as they enter our DC West School Football programs, introducing them to our Core Values: Love, Toughness and Discipline. 

  • 1st and 2nd grade Flag Football - This is run in house and is focused on developing introductory football and flag football skills. 

  • 3rd and 4th grade Flag Football - We are joined with the Elkhorn Youth Sports Org and are a part of NFL flag football. This program is more competitive and introduces our athletes to more organized play against different opponents. 

  • 5th & 6th grade Tackle Football - Part of the Great Plains Youth Football League. Coaches are USA Football certified in coaching, prevention and care of athletic injuries, and the latest safest drills. This focuses on getting our kids ready to join the DC West Junior High Football Family  

  • Youth Skills Camp - This program is led by our High School Football players alongside staff and youth org coaches with a focus on fundamentals of catching, throwing, blocking and love for the sport

Program Regulation for Players Outside of the DC West School District

Students enrolled in schools outside of DC West will be allowed to register and will be classified as waitlist. If the football team has room and it is agreed unanimously by the Board and Head Coach, the player will be allowed on the team. However, the player will not be eligible for scholarship for the event
These programs are volunteer led, with oversight from the DC West High School Football staff. If interested in volunteering or for any questions on the youth football program, please contact Mike Troy at .
