Youth Football Gets Underway in Lantana

Youth Football Gets Underway in Lantana

by Susan Neuhalfen

The Lantana Wildcats youth football league is starting off its season with a strength and conditioning camp courtesy of the Guyer High School Football players. They are preparing with helmets the first week and later working into full pads in order to learn to keep hydrated during the hot Texas summer.

Lantana Wildcats are open to those in the Lantana Community ages kindergarten through 6th grade. Kindergarten and first grade players play flag football, while the other teams, divided by grade, play tackle. It’s a great way to teach the kids sportsmanship and teamwork while learning the game of football. Lantana Wildcats play teams in Southlake, Trophy Club, Coppell and other surrounding areas.

“It’s great watching their success as they grow,” said Robert Bird, one of the coaches.  “We are helping them develop into young men by leading them and teaching them skills on and off the field.”
