The Jr. Spartans are Moving to a New League
Sacramento Youth FootballUpdated Friday January 27, 2017 by Jr Spartans.
We are happy to announce that the Jr. Spartans have moved to a new league, SYF - Sacramento Youth Football. While we are still waiting for certain specifics, like the upcoming game schedule and the offical start date of the 2017 season, you will be able to take a look at SYF through their website and learn more about the league.
Why the change?
While we are extremely thankful for the opportunity that ISAC provided the Jr. Spartans in the past two seasons, joining a league like SYF will provide our kids with the opportunity to truly learn the game. Our kids will be placed in divisions that are competitive but still balanced. There is also more guidance and outlets available to the Jr. Spartans to really prepare our youth for football as they grow older.
What does this mean for my child?
The biggest change for parents to take notice of is the age and weight breakdown for both football and cheer. The levels are as follows: 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U. We have previously known these as Mighty Mites, Peewees, Jr. Midgets, and Midgets. The minimum age to play will be 6 years old. The age cutoff will be August 1, and there will be no Older / Lighters. 14U will not consist of any high school freshman.
We are happy about this next phase in the development of the Jr. Spartans and we want to also thank the families that have been with us the last two seasons. We hope to see you back and growing with us this next season as well!
