    7th Annual Youth Jamboree/Kickoff



    Saturday, August 27th

    9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

    Tahpah Park



    *     Scrimmages are held on half-fields.

    *     Each team will get 10 plays to score, not including PATs.

    *     Coaches allowed on the field for instructional purposes. No play clock.

    *     Points are not kept. Focus is on game-type situation practices

    *     Wear game jerseys.

    *     League rules generally apply. These are scrimmages so each team should use the time to practice their offensive/defensive schemes and try different lineups for each game.

    *     We encourage parents/friends to create a tunnel for players to run through and for teams to cheer on ALL teams were all Sabers. This would be a great day for teams to hold a pre-season get to know each other party after the Jamboree!

    *     Teams are encouraged to practice common Breakdown Sabers together on the field following each scrimmage.



    *     Merchandise sales including SYFA t-shirts, practice jerseys, and $1 mouth guards
