Are you ready for some football? The Rockford Youth Football Association is very excited about our next season of play. Listed below is all of the information you need to know, Go Rockets!
Participation in RAAA tackle football is grades 3rd – 6th. Cost to participate is $75.00 as well as a $25.00 Jersey fee. The Jerseys are multi-year, which means they can be used as long as they fit as they are yours to keep.
Practices are Tuesday/Thursdays 6:30 – 8:00pm, with 3 Saturday Dates for the 5th/6th grade participants TBD. 3rd grade players play only against each other in house, meaning not against any other communities. They do suit up but have limited contact in a very controlled setting. 4th grade players will progress by playing other 4th grade teams in controlled scrimmages. 5th and 6th grade players are divided equally into teams and will progress into playing games against other communities. Some night games as well as 3 Jamboree’s on Saturday mornings.
Equipment hand out is August 12th, and our official season will begin August 14th and continue thru October 11th. Deadline to register is August 15th. A $25.00 late fee will be assessed to all registrants beginning on August 16th.

RAAA Youth FB Summer Camp – August 4, 5, 6 – 9:00-11:00am
This camp is not in pads and will serve as a great intro for our beginning / new participants to the program as well as to refresh our boys into the teaching of our drills and fundamentals. This is also an excellent opportunity for youngsters/parents to gain an insight into our program as participation in this camp does not mean they have to participate in the tackle program. Both the camp and the program are open to students in grades 3rd through 6th.
Cost is $40.00 and each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Those that will be playing tackle football will be issued their equipment for the season during this camp to take home provided they have registered appropriately. You may register for both the camp and the season at the same time.

We have held a couple of fundraising activities this past year and are going to be asking for additional funds in any manner possible and welcome any input or donations on your behalf at this time. We also are going to need your help in coaching our youngsters; we will provide a program wide playbook to follow so no need to worry about previous coaching experience. I welcome any comments and or feedback as we continue Rockford Youth Football; feel free to contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or assistance you can offer to help us out.
