Nazareth Little Blue Eagles

Football Program

Welcome to Little Blue Eagles Football.

At the Lower Nazareth Little Blue Eagles we believe that the game of football carries many of the intrinsic values that we want our children to learn and develop in life.  We will provide children with a safe and fun environment to learn the game of football and to develop skills they will use for the rest of their lives.

Whether your child hopes to continue their career after recreational league football or not, they will have fun, make friends, learn a great game, self discipline, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

In accordance with our commitment to safety, we adhere to strict weight limits in all of our tackle divisions.  There is no allowance for "heavies" or heavier participants along the offensive or defensive lines.
