The mission of the REALNINE FOOTBALL™ game is to provide a football league for boys and girls that is fun, competitive, and, above all, safe to play for all its participants. 

The design of the game gives us the opportunity to teach football skills and values without tackling and head contact. Our league is not based on a seven-man touch or flag-football concept. It is a nine-man game that is played with the same rules and regulations of eleven-man football while minimizing health risks. The procedures and innovative style of play govern each other to make for the safest simulated version of the eleven-man tackle game to date.

Weather playing in our youth game or as a high school athlete in the off-season REALNINE FOOTBALL™ is a game that will properly  transition young players from touch and flag football (non-contact) to eleven-man football, while preserving the health and long-term well-being of the athletes. All players will be equipped with soft shell head gear and shoulder pads. Teams are divided into age group specific divisions within two separate leagues - Junior Youth Leagues (6th, 7th, 8th Grades) and High School Leagues. All players will be equipped with soft-shell head gear and have the option of wearing a soft-shell shoulder pad.

Learning how to play the game of football and developing skill sets and techniques from qualified coaches in the safest possible way are the principles that guide our game. Although participating in a competitive atmosphere is part of our experience, learning the fundamentals to play properly and safely is our focus.


REALNINE FOOTBALL™ has the goal of providing the opportunity to learn the game of football and have fun while playing. Whether player goals are recreational fun or high level competitive performance REALNINE FOOTBALL™ is here to serve the player needs.
