Kid of the Week Program

Kid of the Week

The Browns find it essential that youth in the area stay just as active in the community, as they do on the field. The Kid of the Week program allows youth programs the opportunity to identify with the Browns, while recognizing young athletes for contributions to their team and community. The Football Kid of the Week will feature a football player between the ages of 6-13 who excels on and off the field as a teammate and as a member of the community.

Rookie Tackle Football League

Rookie Tackle Football

Designed by USA Football, the Rookie Tackle model is part of the Youth Football Player Development Pathway, which serves as a bridge game from flag to traditional 11-player tackle football.

Unlike traditional 11-player tackle, all players will have the opportunity to learn and play multiple positions. A 7-on-7 format allows for higher coach-to-player ratio leading to advanced player skill development. Another noticeable difference is the smaller field (40 x 35 1/3) to fit the right age, right stage of the player.
