Since 2017, Lancaster Rec has been leading the Jr. Tornado Tackle Football Program in collaboration with SDOL. Our program blends the enjoyment of sports with invaluable learning. Our primary emphasis lies in fostering participation and knowledge rather than fixating on competition. Our commitment extends beyond the realm of sports proficiency; we strive to instill values like teamwork, dedication, and good sportsmanship into every aspect of the Lancaster Rec youth experience.
Lancaster Rec’s football opportunities include:
- Flag Football (Spring & Fall) – Ages 6-15* (*Ages 13-15 Spring only)
- Jr. Tornado Tackle Football – Ages 7-12
Practices are held at the McCaskey Practice Football Field, with home games in the McCaskey Stadium.
Through our partnership with SDOL, we are able to provide comprehensive coaching trainings and continuity across all football programs. McCaskey’s football coaching staff trains our volunteer coaches in accordance with the skills and standards used at the high school level. Our teams play in the Red Rose Midget Football League with the season beginning the first week of August.
Our program creates a clear pathway for success and a feeder system that leads into the following SDOL football programs:
- Junior High School Football (Grades 7-9)
- Junior Varsity Football (Grades 9-12)
- Varsity Football (Grades 9-12)
