Kick off the 2021 football season with RYFA Event Extravaganza


August 4th Event open to kids in Grades 2-8 and their families


Rogers Youth Football Association is excited to announce the 2021 Tackle Football Kickoff Event on August 4th, 2021, from 5-8 pm at the Rogers Middle School Fields. Last year's event was a huge success, and this year proves to be even better.  We will be giving away a Vikings Helmet autographed by Harrison Smith.  No purchase required, you just need to weigh in at the event to receive an entry for the drawing.  The event is meant to bring families, current players and future players together and answer questions parents have about the 2021 tackle football program.


All kids grades 2-8 and their families are encouraged to attend this event, even if you’ve not already signed up for tackle football or have not played in the past. Kids are encouraged to wear their previous jerseys. Rogers Youth Football Association staff will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about tackle football.
