Teams & Playing Levels

Updated Monday July 29, 2019 by Heather Hanrahan.

The Antioch Viking tackle football program is made up of teams that are Big 10 and Pac 10 levels. Teams are put together based on registration numbers and ages and weights of all players each season. It is our goal to have a team at all levels for Big 10 and Pac 10 each year, but that is not guaranteed.

Big 10

The Big 10 emphasizes competition at a high level, and includes the best and most capable players at each level. These teams are drafted prior to the Pac 10 draft. All communities in TCYFL must put together and compete with a Big 10 team before putting together at Pac 10 team at each level.

Pac 10

The Pac 10 emphasizes instruction, development, and participation. Pac 10 teams are composed of players that are not participating in the Big 10.
