2022 WAB Knights: 

Football is a fun and exhilarating experience for all our youth participants.  The goal of WAB Knights Youth Football Association is to firmly instill the values that are core to the sport of football: good sportsmanship, team work, courage, and respect for each other and the community we represent. We provide a safe environment that allows our children to learn the fundamentals of youth football. 

WAB Knights Youth Football is open to all children from 4-8th grade in the Westford, Acton, Boxborough, and surrounding areas for Tackle Football.

WAB Youth Football and Cheer is a member of the Central Mass Youth Football and Cheer Conference (CMYFCC), which is affiliated with American Youth Football League (AYF), the world's largest youth football and cheer league.

Conditioning Camp

Knights Tackle Football will run a month long conditioning camp starting typically around the first week of  August and run through the end of August. Practices are 4 nights a week Monday - Thursday from 6-8PM. Safety is our number one priority, and to ensure player safety, AYF requires all tackle football players to have a minimum of 10 hours of conditioning without pads prior to the start of padded practice.  Players who miss practice during the initial 10 practice hours MUST complete their mandatory 10 hours prior to wearing pads with the team.

PRACTICE 

After conditioning camp, our practices will be 2 days during the week and a short walkthrough on Saturday. We will alternate fields between the towns we represent to accommodate all families. 

GAMES

Teams will play one game per week, typically on Sunday. We will play within and against other Central Massachusetts teams.
