Elkhorn Athletic Association Football offers youth tackle football in Elkhorn Nebraska, designed to best prepare players who are entering the Elkhorn High or Elkhorn South High School football programs. The alignment rules follow the Elkhorn Public Schools Boundary guidelines. We were established to progressively transition from youth football to high school football. By competing against other high school aligned football organizations in the metro area, our program best prepares players to handle the speed, size, and systems they will face later in high school. In short, we offer a preview into tomorrows "Friday Night Lights" experience. This consistent, progressive, and modern approach of player development is used by the most successful high school football programs in Texas, Florida, and across the USA. Our program offers your son the best chance of improving his football skills and will position him to succeed at the next level of play.
EAA Tackle Football teams will compete against other Omaha Metro feeder organizations in the Metro Youth Football League (MYFL). All League information (Game Schedule, Standings, Rules, etc) is available on the MYFL website.

Our mission is to build strong leaders through youth football, who will possess the technical, physical and mental skills required to give them great character, sportsmanship and personal accountability both on and off the field. Leveraging highly qualified volunteers who are dedicated to the development of high school aligned youth sports, we support the Elkhorn Public Schools football programs to the best of our abilities.
Our system creates the opportunity for a young football player to smoothly transition from youth to high school football. We prepare our players by teaching them cutting edge schemes and techniques while challenging them both mentally and physically to reach their potential. We believe in playing against the best competition available and creating situations which require our players to constantly push their limits beyond what they think is possible and to work together as a team to overcome obstacles. These concepts develop players into leaders.
Everyone Can Play: The youth of today come in all sizes; some small and some big. The most important thing is the boys get to play and compete against the players of their same grade and age. Other leagues will either not register a player or move larger kids up to the next age or grade group. At EAA, we feel it is important to keep players of the same ages/grades together. They learn at the same speed and build positive team relationships. If you move a younger, heavier kid up with older kids, they will typically have less playing time, run a greater risk of injury, and not have a fun and positive season.
Creating life-long memories and friends for life: Ask any dad who played youth football, they can tell you who they played with and probably the score of every game. As a parent you want your kids to experience the same thing. The coaching staff, team parents and everyone involved go the extra mile to make sure the kids have a very rewarding experience. Since EAA Youth Football is a program designed to incrementally prepare players for a smooth transition into the Elkhorn High Schools, many kids will have played together for five or more years before they take the field together on Friday nights. Most importantly, they will also be friends.
