The Atom division takes the players through the next phase of skill development while still providing a safe and fun environment.
This is a competitive division that tracks scores and wins/losses. Players continue to learn the fundamental skills required to progress through the older age groups. Play at this age group takes on the familiar form of the game and follows most of the same rules that most of us are familiar with, using more recognizable plays and skills (such as more passing).
There are 9 players from each team on the field at a time but coaches are no longer allowed to be on the field during gameplay. The Atom division plays on a regular length football field however the width is reduced for the smaller number of players on the field.
In 2023 we ran 2 Atom teams in the 17 team league.
