The Littlestown Elementary tackle football program is offered to players Grades 1-6. The mission is to teach players the fundamentals of football, in addition to providing instruction and support in the basics of the game. The Coaching Staff is committed to instilling to each child the ideals of responsibility, character, good sportsmanship, and contribute to the child's physical, social, emotional, and overall development. They learn how to be part of a team and learn life lessons on and off the field that can last a lifetime providing years of fun and fitness.   LEFA is a feeder program for the Littlestown Football program.  LEFA abides by a strict Code of Conduct policy.

LEFA tackle football is governed by York County Youth Football Association league (YCYFA). Games are played against other teams in the surrounding York/Adams Counties.
