Participation in the Live Oak Jaguars sports Programs provides kids an opportunity to perform in an organized, supervised, safety-oriented environment. Our programs emphasize fun for all and encourage the development of qualities important long after their Jaguar days are gone. Weight limits are not used to discriminate against children.
Live Oak Jaguars provides flag football and tackle football divided into brackets by
age only.We currently have (Flag ages 4-5) Tackle (Midget age 6-7) (Rookies ages 8-9) (Juniors ages 10-11), (Seniors ages 12-13) No Weight Limits. Age as of August 1 of current year.

Live Oak Jaguars provides cheerleading divided into brackets by age only. Each season the cheerleaders cheer for the football games and then conclude with a State Cheer Competition. We offer cheerleading from ages 5-13.
Parents can rest assured that Criminal Background Checks, Coaches Certification
and other special training is required and accomplished by this organization which
is also required by TYFA. Abuse is not tolerated in the Live Oak Jaguars
Time commitments depends on many things such as volunteering for pre-season
fundraisers etc. It depends on if you volunteer to coach. The total possible (official)
time commitment for your child is around 20 weeks (August thru mid-December).
Most teams practice 5 days a week for 2 hours per practice for the first few weeks
and then drop to 3 days a week for 2 hours each practice once school starts.
Mandatory Play Rule...
There is none. The Live Oak Jaguars does not force any team to play a child a
certain amount of plays. We do recommended to each team that they provide the
opportunity for the child to play as long as they show up to practice, are trying to
learn, are not disciplinary problems etc. There are leagues that have mandatory
play, but from experience, we know that the methods some coaches use to get the
kids those plays doesn't actually provide the child any real benefit other than
getting them on the field. "Stand over there and don't move or Go way out there
and just run down the field" doesn't really cut it. Some of these leagues actually
give these children a derogatory name: "Play Burners".
