It doesn’t matter who scores more touchdowns. Youth football is not about winning, but more about teaching young kids how to play the game. “We don’t even keep score or statistics,” said Chelan’s youth football organizer Brian Hendricks. “We just want to give the kids a positive learning experience.”
On Saturday, Omak and Cascade came to town with their youth teams and played Chelan’s three teams. Under dark, rainy clouds, the kids tackled, ran plays, passed the ball and in general had a great time playing the game of football in full pads.
The coaches are able to be on the field with the kids, shouting encouragement and coaching them in the nuances of the game.
The football players are the future stars of each high schools’ upcoming sports programs.
