Q: When will I find out what team I am on and the practice schedule?
A: A player draft is held in early August for grades 4th - 6th. Coaches will contact players prior to their first practice. At the 2nd / 3rd grade level, coaches will be given their roster the second week in August and then they will contact each player on their team.
Q: Where are the fields located?
A: Go to http://www.rogersyouthfootball.com/page/show/1694178-field-locations for field locations for the home and away games.
Q: I'm interesting in coaching, how do I become a coach?
A: Rogers Youth Football is always looking for new volunteers to help coach. If you are interested, please use the Coaches Application on the top menu bar to submit your request.
Q: Can I request that my son play on the same team as his friend(s)?
A: We hold a player draft for grades 4th - 8th, so we are not able to accommodate special requests at these levels. Coaches and parents are great about doing ride shares so transportation should not be a problem. Because we do not have a draft for players in the 2nd / 3rd grade league we do attempt to honor special requests, however there are no guarantees.
Q: What equipment is provided by the Rogers Youth Football (RYF), and what equipment do players need to provide?
A: RYF provides players with the following:
Jerseys with the players last name that the players get to keep
Players need to provide the following:
Helmet (WHITE IN COLOR)
Football Pants (BLACK IN COLOR)
Football Cleats (any rubber cleated shoes such as baseball or soccer shoes are also OK)
Q: When does the season start and when does it end?
A: Practice for the 2nd / 3rd grade league will start late August. Practice for the 4th - 8th grade leagues will start mid-August.
