We are a Fairfield County Football League www.fairfieldcountyfootball.org club. It is our goal to support the scholastic and athletic achievement of Ridgefield's kids who enjoy football and cheerleading activities.
Welcome to the 2014 Ridgefield Youth Football & Cheer season!
We are a developmental league and are focused on building skills, game knowledge, sportsmanship, being a team player and community pride!
We offer a variety of programming for both boys and girls and invite you to be a part of what is sure to be a wonderful season on and off the field.
Outlined here are the programs we invite you and your children to be a part of:
For 3rd through 8th grade players, the Ridgefield Tigers are registered with The Fairfield County Football League (FCFL). Ridgefield will compete with tackle football teams from Darien, Fairfield, New Canaan, Greenwich, Westport, Weston and Wilton.
New this season: In an ongoing effort to increase player’s safety RYF will implement the use of Guardian Caps for practices for this and all future seasons. Guardian Caps are padded shells which are placed on the exterior of the helmets and lessen the impact of head trauma. In addition, coaches will continue to promote head’s up tackling.
For 1st to 4th grade players. Flag Football is an introductory football program and has less practice requirements as that of tackle. Second and third graders must choose between tackle or flag. Due to high demand and the RYF maximum roster for a flag team we suggest that you register early to guarantee team placement.
All children who are entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2013 up to 8th grade are welcome to register for cheer for the 2014 season. Our Cheer Program offers both sideline and competition squads. To be eligible to participate in competition you must participate in sideline cheering. We are currently finalizing plans for our competition program and will forward more information as it becomes available.
