2021 East Lake Spring Tackle 8x8 Registration Now Open

East Lake Youth Football is proud to announce the opening of registration for the 2021 Spring Tackle Football season. Spring Football entails a fast pace 8v8 platform on an 80yrd field that attracts approximately 200 teams from across Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Spring football involves seasonal competitive gameplay ending with a playoff style bracket and championship game.

East Lake will have four (4) D2 teams competing this season, 6U, 10U, 12U and 14U. Division eligibility is determined by your players’ date of birth for the fall 2020 season as of July 31st. In other words, if your child is 13 y/o, but was 12 y/o on or before July 31st, they’re eligible to play 12U so on and so forth. The 12U and 10U divisions will be open to non-members after returning fall 2020 East Lake players have been given an opportunity to register (Deadline is Dec. 31st). Non-member open registration will begin Jan. 1st 2021. 14U is highly competitive and participation is by invite and tryout only. Each team is allowed 22 players with 3 player alternates totaling a 25 player maximum. 14U tryouts will commence on Jan 11th and 13th from 6pm-8pm at the East Lake Youth Football and Cheer sports complex. Practice or games will not affect any eligible high school player wishing to compete.

Practice: Practice will commence on Feb 1st, 2021 from 6:30-8:30pm on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. In March, practice will be rolled back to Tuesday and Thursday for the remainder of the season. The regular season will run from Feb. 1st to April 3rd with the first game commencing on March 6th. The playoffs and state championships will be from April 10th to May 1st, if applicable. I do anticipate a BYE week for Pinellas Spring Break March 14th-20th. A BYE week will require at least one double-header day for all teams at East Lake. Coaches do have discretion regarding practice day and time modification. 

Travel: Because spring involves tristate competition there is some regional travel involved in the tri-county area. There is also a possibility of an East, South or North Florida game (double-header) that may require an overnight stay. East Lake is budgeting to cover or at least offset this cost to lessen any impact on parents that may occur. This is only a possibility, but I’m obligated to inform you as participation is paramount. East Lake has bid for two home games so this may be a moot point.

Fees: The cost for spring tackle is $200. This will cover the YSF registration fee of $160 and allow us to purchase spring jerseys. Intergraded pants are still being discussed and will be decided on once teams are formed. Equipment will be issued to selected and registered players if needed. The deadline for final payment is February 1st.

Lastly, welcome to East Lake Youth Football. If you have any questions regarding spring football please reach out to me personally at [email protected]. GO EAST LAKE!
