Ridgefield Youth Football: 2023 Fall Registration Information
Dear Ridgefield Youth Tigers Parents,
Welcome to the 2023 Fall Flag Football. Our Fall Flag Football program is for Grades 1-8, in three divisions: Grades 1&2, Grades 3, 4 & 5, Grades 6, 7 & 8.
The Fall 2023 season will be held Saturday mornings at East Ridge Middle School beginning September 10th and ending November 12th.
ONLINE REGISTRATION and PAYMENT at www.ridgefieldyouthfootball.org is strongly encouraged to cut down on the paper forms and to consolidate all of the information into our online database. If you are unable to register online please contact our registrar at
. In this registration packet, you will find information and forms that need to be completed and submitted before your child can participate as a football player or cheerleader.
The following is a brief description of the forms and requirements for 2023:
1. 2023 Registration Forms (All FORMS ARE PART OF ONLINE REGISTRATION PROCESS)
- Registration Form
- RYFC Guidelines Agreement (for Parents and Players)
- RYFC Coaches Code of Ethics (if applicable)
- RYFC Parental Consent Agreement Form
- FCFL Parents Code of Conduct Agreement Form
- FCFL Participants Code of Conduct Agreement Form
(Anyone who does not register online, these forms are located on the website and must be completed manually. They are located under the Documents/Forms tab. We highly recommend online registration!)
2. 2023 DOCTOR CERTIFICATION FORM (MUST be received NO LATER THAN 9/1/23 - MUST BE SUBMITTED ONLINE)
We must have a LIVE stamped and approved Doctor certification from your physician for your child to participate in the RYFC programs. The doctor certification is required each year.
The 2023 Doctor Certification Form is located on the website under the Documents/Forms tab or by clicking HERE.
IMPORTANT: If your child’s physical is not scheduled until after 9/1/23, the physician can still sign this form as long as it is signed after 1/1/22! In fact, you may wish to drop the form at the physicians’ office to have it signed ASAP so as not to delay completion of your child’s registration and to avoid the fall sports form rush.
Your child WILL NOT participate in the 2023 Fall Flag Football Program until the Doctor Certification Form as well as all other online registration forms are completed correctly and turned in by the dates indicated.
