2023 Season is here!!! Registration is open now for Football!!!

River City Youth Football and Cheerleading offers girls and boys in our surrounding communities the opportunity to learn the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens through a supervised football and cheerleading program. We are a non-profit educational organization that continues to grow every year since our establishment in 2008, because of our countless volunteers’ dedication to our league.
