Less players: more throws, targets, catches and on ball 1 on 1 defense. No huddles: increased reps and improvisation. Our "No Coach" rule serves as an incubator for football labs of free play. A few rules, but no replays or official reviews. For the parents, how we played football growing up in the backyard, only with tournaments, leagues and a solid selection of tunes. Division levels range from elementary through high school.
Our model is affordable and designed to keep costs per family below $10 per game (as low as $5). We save your time and money by eliminating practices and weekend road trips that require hotel stays. Our youth sport-family balance requires nothing more than a two-hour local commitment per week.
Route Tree 3 on 3 touch football offers the backyard football feel with the convenience of a wider range of competition. You now have access to all the best neighborhood teams from your area. Certified officials help maintain safety and teach rules of the game.
FREE PLAY, MORE REPS
No Coaches and No Huddles! Our game is a football lab of improvisation, with tempo and pace, maximizing plays per game (2 plays per minute). Less players per team equals more ball reps. Getting the ball is fun in every sport. Every other play the ball will come your way or you can go get it!
REGROW & RETAIN
The benefit of playing varsity 11 on 11 football is undeniable, and we will forever support that model. Football culture is unique. Route Tree believes improving football participation and retention is possible and necessary. It starts with exploring the way our game is presented at the youth level and finding ways to make it safer and more fun. Other sports have found their niche with Futsal (Soccer), 3 on 3 hoops and 4 on 4 hockey. Our mission is to increase the number of participants entering the tipping point years of junior high so our amazing coaches and cultures at the high school and college levels can better serve our communities.
Route Tree 3 on 3 has created a supplemental form of football that produces more reps, targets and touches. Its player led format encourages friends to throw together their own team and promotes creativity, confidence and fun! All while listening to your favorite tunes.
