From The Commissioner
Welcome to the Rochester Youth Football League (RYFL) website. We are a well-established youth football and cheerleading organization with over 60 years of experience serving the youth of the Rochester area. Our organization supports the needs of young athletes from their first moments in the sport through their Jr. High School careers. Our goals is to provide a platform from which young athletes develop a love of the game and of physical activity. We strive to develop each athlete mentally, physically, emotionally, and academically, along with developing the important skills of teamwork and sportsmanship. An important secondary goal is to develop each athlete for a successful high school athletic career. Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss the benefits that the RYFL can provide to your son or daughter.

          Rochester Youth Football was established in 1956 by a few leaders in the community with a big vision. We are proud that 2017 marks our 61th anniversary and our 30th year at Roger Allan Park. We were created to be the feeder program for the Little Red Raider Football and Cheering organization and we have evolved into a feeder program for not only the Little Red Raiders but also for Somersworth and Wolfeboro.

Coverage For Cook Shack: It is a league tradition that the teams playing in the Championship should be able to focus entirely on the game and not be concerned with the Cook Shack. We are, therefore, asking for anyone who would volunteer to work the Cook Shack during the Championship Game as well as the Pro-Bowl to just show up at those games to help out. Thank you all.
Team Mom Meeting: The first team mom meeting will be held on Tuesday August 22 at 6:00 in the RYFL office. Thank you to all the team moms who work very hard to keep out teams in good shape.
Volunteers: All of our coaches are volunteers. All of our concession workers are volunteers. Your league commissioner, and its board members are all volunteers.
