Rookie Tackle Overview

The Bux-Mont League and the Hawks have voted in this new and innovative program to transition kids from Flag into Tackle.  The recommended age for this is 6-7 yr olds.  With this inaugural season, the Hawks will be looking to volunteers to help coach and manage this team.  Please reach out to Mark Dillon [email protected] or Kevin Bennett [email protected] to learn more.

Pop Warner and USA Football have joined forces for a pilot program called Rookie Tackle, a transitional program for kids between Flag Football and Mitey Mites and it is already generating plenty of excitement in Pop Warner.

Rookie Tackle was created to introduce tackle football to younger players, and was created with input from youth football league leaders throughout the United States, who have modified the rules of the game based on player development.

“Rookie  Tackle” is a “bridge-game” between flag and 11 player tackle that creates a best – practice pathway that allows youngsters to get a feel for the great game of football by playing a number of different positions in every game, two point stances, no “special teams”, and with coaches on the field helping to instruct, inform and encourage each kid out there.


  • Fosters Participation: Allows leagues with limited registered players to field more teams.
  • Players Rotate Positions: Participants rotate and learn multiple positions and skills on offensive and defense.
  • Smaller Fields: Scaled to create an appropriate playing space for the age and abilities of younger athletes.
  • Maximize Field Space: Allows leagues to utilize field space more efficiently.
  • Smaller Rosters: Provides a greater coach-to-player ratio to foster individual attention and skill development.
  • Increased Activity: Rule modifications result in more snaps on offense and defense for younger players.

2021 Hawks Tackle Football - Fall

The Hatboro Horsham Hawks organization is excited to open registration for our Fall 2021 Tackle Football Season.  This year, we are offering two different team options:  Age Based (Unweighted) and Age/Weight Based. The objective is to provide as many options for players and families as possible to compete in this great game. The objective is to form as many tackle teams as possible while setting each player and team up for success. 
When you move through the registration process, you may be presented with multiple team options depending upon your players age. Please select the team that you feel is best suited for your player (Age/Weight breakdown is below) Once all registrations are received, the Hawks will evaluate and may need to balance out the teams by moving a player to a different team based on age/weight concerns. Each parent will be consulted by the President of the Hawks and the Head Coach if this is the case. If you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected] or contact Mark Dillon with questions. Pop Warner age for registration is the Players age as of August 1, 2021.
Team Options are as follows:
Rookie Tackle (NEW this season) – 6-7 yr olds
