Welcome to Marsh Creek Tackle Football!

Marsh Creek Eagles Tackle Football

The Marsh Creek Eagles are proud members of the Pop Warner Little Scholars and Bux-Mont organizations. Pop Warner is a nonprofit organization that provides youth football and cheer & dance programs for participants in 42 states and several countries around the world. 

All Marsh Creek Eagle families and coaches are committed to the fun, camaraderie and excitement that football can provide for the youth in our community. Many of our teams compete in competitive divisions and we strive to win every game we play.  However, we believe success at this level of football is not measured by wins and losses; it is measured by our player’s enjoyment and growth.  Players who can’t wait to get back on the field the next season, or who simply show improvement over the course of a season, those are the only “victories” that really matter and are valued.  Many of our former players have been fortunate enough continue playing at the high school, college, and even a few at the professional levels.  Yet no players will be signing an NFL contract or committing to any College programs at the end of a Marsh Creek season.  Everyone involved with our organization works to keep our games in perspective and maintain an enjoyable environment for players and families.

Marsh Creek Football adheres to the rules of Pop Warner Little Scholars. One of the foundation rules requires minimum plays for each player to ensure that each child has a chance to learn the game of football and can create great experiences and memories for themselves. We offer multiple levels of football, some with an age/weight restriction and others that are simply age based, our goal is to always place our players on the team best suited for their safety and success. If you are not sure which division is best for your child do not worry – adjustments will be made, and all players will be placed in the proper division to start the season. 

Team categories are based on the Pop Warner age guidelines and the player's age as of July 31st.  All levels compete in standard game formats (except for Rookie), regardless of if they are Competitive or Non-Competitive.  Some of the rules at the Non-Comp levels will vary from the Comp levels - 2-point stances, No Kick-offs, No Blitzing, and higher required  minimum plays.

The of possible teams are as follows:

Rookie Tackle 7v7 – Unlimited – Ages 5, 6, & 7
7U -  Unlimited Weight – Ages -6 & 7
8U – Unlimited / No max – Ages - 7 & 8
9U -  Unlimited Weight – Ages -8 & 9
10U – Unlimited Weight – Ages - 9 & 10
11U - Unlimited Weight - Ages – 10 & 11
12U – Unlimited Weight – Ages 11 & 12
13U - Unlimited Weight - Ages 12 & 13

All Marsh Creek Eagles coaches adhere to the following coaching philosophy:  We focus to provide our children with a positive and enjoyable football experience.

  • ·        Insist that everyone is a good teammate – All players and coaches deserve respect and to be treated fairly
  • ·        Teach through positive reinforcement.
  • ·        Encourage hard work and the desire of not giving up, anything can be achieved.
  • ·        Motivate and challenge all of the children on a team.
  • ·        Involve parents of the children as much as possible.
  • ·        Teach football fundamentals to enable a good foundation for future years.
  • ·        Be competitive but fair, be aggressive but respectful, be tough but compassionate and maintain balance in your coaching.
  • ·        Win or lose, keep it fun and help explain the lessons along the way. 

We are almost always in need of additional help on the sidelines; the success of our program depends upon our volunteer coaches. Please consider volunteering to coach, all coaching positions are re-evaluated each season, positions are almost always available.  We do appreciate having some football experience in our coaches, but the reality is, if you know how to coach or teach kids - then you know how to coach this level of football.  We have all the tools needed to make anyone a great youth football coach – we just need the motivated people.

In an effort to simplify the registration process and the overall cost our families incur during the season: we have rolled elements of the seasonal fees into one flat cost. The Marsh Creek Eagles are a 100% volunteer organization, no one involved is being paid for their time.  Registration fees go to cover the costs of field rentals, lights, insurance, national dues, league fees, payment of game referees, equipment replacement and repair.  It is our policy to never allow registration fees to prohibit participation.  If you have a financial hardship and would like to apply for scholarship funding, please contact the Director of Football at [email protected].
