Tribe offers both Varsity and Junior High 6-man tackle football. The program is under the guidance of our Varsity Coach, Brent Golemon (Contact Coach). Christianity is the cornerstone of our program. Prayer and devotion are an integral part of all practices and games. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens and molds us and Tribe's priority is assisting parents with building strong Christian leaders.
Spring Practice begins in April and runs through Mid-May for the Varsity. Junior High is in the month of April. Practices are a mixture of no pads and shells (helmets and shoulder pads).
Fall practice begins the first week in August and runs through the first game. The season is 10 games for both the Varsity and Junior High. Post season play is a single bowl game for the Junior High and potential playoffs for the Varsity which could run through the end of November.
PRACTICES AND GAMES
Practices and home games all take place at "The Pasture" located at 159 Lower Red Rock Rd in Bastrop. Most practices are in the late afternoon and evening. Away games are played all over Central Texas. We play against other home-school, private and public/charter schools.
Tribe provides helmets, shoulder pads, practice and game pants and jerseys. Players are expected to provide all other equipment and required to have a pair of cleats.
