Football

Our football program challenges youth to excel both mentally and physically. The program is physically centered on teaching a solid foundation of football fundamentals, but also offers conditioning, and training techniques to improve speed, balance, and endurance. The program also provides a healthy social outlet, and team building skills that will last a lifetime.

THREE-YEAR FULL-PADDED FLAG FOOTBALL PILOT PROGRAM

Westside Connection has partnered with East, Heelan, and Sergeant Bluff to launch a three year pilot program to integrate 3rd and 4th grade full-padded flag football in Sioux City. The Westside Connection believes in using positive approaches to coaching our student-athletes, as well as keeping their young bodies safe. Therefore, we feel introducing full-padded flag is a program worth trying.
