Spring Program

Spring 2021 General Information

RYFA Flag Football aims to provide a fun, age-appropriate, learning environment where kids can play non-contact football, regardless of skill level.  While the focus will be on the passing elements of the game (QB/C exchange, proper route running, proper throwing form, pass defense, and timing), the goal of the program is to give all kids a chance to throw and catch the ball, regardless of positions they may play in the fall program.

This program is affiliated with the NFL Flag program.  It is open to all boys and girls from Kindergarten through 8th grades.

RYFA will follow the mandated COVID protocols from the Minnesota Department of Health for Organized Youth Sports. RYFA is currently following the guidelines released on April 22, 2021 by the MN Department of Health in our league's COVID-19 plan
