7th Annual Youth Jamboree/Kickoff
WHEN & WHERE:
Saturday, August 27th
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
RULES & TEAM STUFF!
Scrimmages are held on half-fields.
Each team will get 10 plays to score, not including PAT’s.
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 – we’re 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.
STUFF FOR SALE!!
Merchandise sales including SYFA t-shirts, practice jerseys, and $1 mouth guards
New top rated Xenith helmets for our travel players!
Shakopee Youth Football Association and the Football Boosters Club are proud to congratulate the 2016 recipients of Shakopee Dollars for Scholars scholarships. All are top students in the their class as well, and our two contributing organizations are very proud of these recipients.

Congratulations and best of luck to them in their college careers!
Shakopee Football was featured in a KARE11 story on August 10th about our efforts to make our sport as safe as possible through USA Football's Heads Up coach education and certification program, and by following this program to teach our players the proper tackling techniques designed to keep them safe.
Here is a link to that story on their website.
