Rookie Tackle serves as a bridge-game between flag football and 11-player tackle and is a part of USA Football’s adoption of the United States Olympic Committee’s American Development Model (ADM). Rookie Tackle was created with input from youth football leaders throughout the United States to improve the playing experience for young athletes. The field design is a 35.3x50 yd 3-sided field perimeter. Play begins at the open end and drives toward the end zone, similar to playing half court basketball. Printed elements every 5 yards.
