Tackle football will start the 2nd or 3rd week of August and is offered for 5th-6th grades, must be 10 years old by July 31st and under 155 pounds without equipment.  Hart Rec offers' football equipment for tackle football.  Thanks to the Butch Gale equipment fund, we were able to suit up 23 kids in 2015.

Hart Tackle football is associated with YMCA Pop Warner Football based in Traverse City.  For more information visit



The season will start Monday, September 12h and will end Saturday, October 15th.  Flag football games will start Saturday, September 24th and will end October 15th. A complete game schedule will be released during the first week of practice.  There will be one Friday night under the lights games for the kids.  I hope this in not only an exciting night for the kids but for the Hart Community as well.
