Battle of the Bay (BOTB) 7 on 7 Youth Passing League is designed to complement tackle football at the youth league level. BOTB 7 on 7 allows youth to further develop the necessary skills in today’s passing game. 7 on 7 has helped increase players of all levels of football throwing, route running and coverage abilities, as well as, helped players identity pass coverages and passing concepts. Players will have the opportunity to compete in this fast paced, fun filled and highly competitive passing league.

There will be two teams, one for 5/6 graders, and one for 7/8th graders.

BOTB is a 6 week passing league that starts February 18th, 2017 thru April 2nd. Teams will play two (2) games on the designated game day. The final week will be a two (2) day tournament that will determine the leagues champions. Practice will be 1 to 2 days a week.

Colts Moving to Pop Warner!

The Westchase Colts are pleased to announce that we will be moving to Pop Warner starting in 2017!

Pop Warner’s balance of academics and athletics is the perfect match for the high standards we demand from our cheerleaders and football players. We will be releasing more information in the upcoming months in regards to our new home with Pop Warner and our upcoming 2017 fall season.

GO COLTS!

A few tidbits about the change:

  1. We will still be practicing at Ed Radice. As of right now, practice days and time will be the same as in the past.
  2. We will now have a home field to play on. We are still in discussions on where that will be. Most likely a high school in the area. This is an exciting new advantage of playing with Pop Warner!
  3. There will now be different weights and ages for teams. We felt the break down of teams for weights and ages were a better for youth sports and allows us to make more teams to allow everyone a chance to play more. Not only are the weights and ages better, but we are no longer limited to just one team per each division. This allows us to have as many kids as we want come join and all will get more playing time.
    1. Here is a break down of the weights and ages:
