Dear Ridgefield Youth Tigers Parents,
Welcome to the 2023 Cheerleading season. Ridgefield participates in the Fairfield County Football League (FCFL) with teams from Stamford, Darien, Fairfield, New Canaan, Westport, Norwalk, and Wilton. Our Cheerleading program consists of Sideline and Competitive squads!.
ONLINE REGISTRATION and PAYMENT at www.ridgefieldyouthfootball.org HOWEVER you will need to have the printed copy of the registration packet to hand in! This is needed for validation with the cheer conference on 8/19/23. If you are unable to register online please contact our VP of Cheer at firstname.lastname@example.org. In this registration packet, you will find information and forms that need to be completed and submitted before your child can participate as a cheerleader.
The following is a brief description of the forms and requirements for 2022:
1. 2023 Registration Forms (All FORMS ARE PART OF ONLINE REGISTRATION PROCESS)

We must have a LIVE stamped and approved Doctor certification from your physician in order for your child to participate in the RYFC programs. A doctor cert is required each and every year.
The 2023 forms are located here.
IMPORTANT: If your child’s physical is not scheduled until after August 1st of this year, the physician can still sign this form!
