The Registration "RAAA Football" is not currently available.
Welcome to Rockford Youth Football. We are very excited about the upcoming season of play. Listed below is all of the information you need to know. Go Rockets!
2018 Important Dates
8/16 – Practice begins (Equipment hand-out only)
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.
A separate deposit check of $150.00 made out to RAAA is also required when picking up equipment. (Deposit check destroyed upon return of equipment.)
Practices are Tuesday/Thursdays 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. - 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 when available. 5th and 6th grade players are divided equally and combined into teams and will play games against other communities. Games and league are TBD.
Practices will take place at the Middle School Fields to begin each season, as we get into September we will move practices to the high school complex which are often referred to as Stadium (turf) and Fields #5 and #6 (Grass fields) behind the Stadium.
Our official season will begin August 16th and continue thru mid-October , practicing every Tues / Thurs. Deadline to register is August 14th. A $25.00 late fee will be assessed to all registrants beginning on August 15th.

Saturday games typically play at 9 am and 10:10am
Saturday September 22 is the day we host the league games and will need a lot of volunteer help. Mostly sideline help for the chain gang and down marker but will also like some help in concessions.
Next week a link to sign up for helping that day will be sent out
As only 5th and 6th graders will be playing at the home games on that Saturday, it would be great to have some volunteers from the 3rd and 4th grade families. That way the parents of 5th and 6th grade can watch their kids and you can see what the 3rd and 4th graders will be doing in the years to come.
Save $10.00 towards sports registration by signing up to work at Billy’s Bingo on Monday nights (baseball not included). Three (3) volunteers are needed each night. Include your name, email address and sport. Please go to the RAAA Dibs page to sign up. (you will have to log into your SportsEngine account to sign up for a session)
