A Change in Middle School Football Starting the Fall of 2017

The Vermont Principals Association is phasing out tackle football at the middle school level. Citing safety concerns and efforts to maintain participation, the VPA Middle School Football Committee is mandating a transition from tackle football to a “padded-flag” version of the game. This change will come in 2018 when padded-flag becomes mandatory for all VPA seventh- and eighth-grade school-based teams.

In padded-flag, players continue to don helmets and pads, and there is contact at the line of scrimmage. However, every player also wears flags around their waist, and any ball carrier — be it a primary running back or a lineman who recovers a fumble — may be tackled only by pulling off one of the flags.

In accordance with this VPA edict the Brattleboro Area Middle School will be proactively implementing the changeover for the upcoming 2017 season. Further information and specific details will be forthcoming this summer in the local media and in the BAMS back-to-school newsletter published in August.
