Don't know much about little tot football. I don't think they should be playing tackle until junior high. When you tackle, you read the ball carrier's hips and knees to determine where they're going. Tearing off a flag gives you that training.
Concussions are becoming more rampant in kid sports and will likely be the reason many parents don't let their kids play. I played defensive backfield for years and took many shots in the head but I'm okay. I'm really okay. Did I say I was okay?
You can't blame the parks for kids not being involved and not being able to field teams (although I don't think you were) Blame parents who let their kids sit on video games all day.
