Blaze Tackle Football
What is our tackle football program?
YMCA Blaze Tackle Football is a (padded) tackle football program for players in grades 5-8. The 2019 season will be the 15th season at the Green County YMCA. In 2018, 85 players participated.
Who and when do we play?
YMCA Blaze Tackle Football teams play in the Dane County Youth Football League. There are more than 15 communities in the DCAYFL. We play home games at the YMCA Scholl Athletic Field. Games are primarily played on Saturdays.
How much time is involved?
YMCA Blaze Tackle Football is a “season specific” sport lasting three months unlike other sports that play all year long. The season begins in early August and concludes about the third week of October. Teams practice four days a week in August and two days a week in September and October. Practices generally last about two hours.

4th-8th Grade Boys & Girls Traveling Basketball
The YMCA is partnering with the Monroe Youth Basketball Club to provide our community with a basketball opportunity once again this year. Practices will be held on an evening or two weekly typically at an elementary school or at the Monroe Middle School. Practices focus on teaching the fundamentals and a love of a game. Each team's coach will set up tournaments, or a league opportunity to add competitive games to the experience. Most practices will begin in November and the season will run towards the end of February. Boys and girls have their own teams and they will also be separated by grade level. Going into the 7th & 8th grade level there may be an opportunity to divide teams into skill levels (if the numbers are there). For all grades we ask that you sign up before the tentative end of registration date. Signing up early helps us move the scheduling piece along at a quicker pace. It also allows for us to get a head count on how many participants each team will have.
Firm registration deadline: Friday, September 13th.
A $25.00 deposit check is required at the time of registration.
