To provide the Riverside Local School District students an instructional youth football league allowing them to play together as teammates up to the middle school level. While providing a safe, disciplined and structured environment, we strive to develop stronger, more confident and conscientious young men and teammates.
Riverside Youth Football League will consists of a minimum of 90% Riverside School District players.
We play in the Great Lakes Youth Football League (www.glyfl.com), competing with teams from Mentor, Chardon, Kirtland, Willoughby, Eastlake, Willoughby Hills, Willowick, Willowick, and Fairport. No long distance traveling required for games. We play many of our future rivals.
We are a “weight limit” and “age” controlled league providing a safe environment for its players.
Our “C” level players (7yr. olds) do not play with 8 & 9 year old players.
Game uniforms coordinate with Riverside High School colors (black, gold, white).
Home games/practices will be at LaMuth Middle School. An additional practice location nearby may be used if necessary. Games are played on Saturdays and Sundays.
Each team has access to top quality practice equipment.
