For several years, AFES has sponsored and coached a youth tackle football team.
Youth males are challenged to be better men, exhibit good character, and learn that winning football games isn't the only objective.
The youths all sign contracts agreeing to maintain good grades, behavior, and attendance.
Youths play other teams in the local YSF and Fort Dodge Recreation Football League.
AFES helps sponsor some of the costs and secures coaches for the team.
Sign up is usually in May and practice begins in Aug.
