     Welcome to Rogue Valley Youth Football

  YOUTH FOOTBALL HAS NEVER BEEN AS SAFE AS IT IS TODAY.......

All Rogue Valley Youth Football Coaches, assistant Coaches and Head Coaches, are required to have the same league approved - Heads-Up Tackle Football Coaching Certification that is required of our high school coaches. In fact, we were the first in the area to implement this coaching certification program.

The entire football community is changing the approach to teaching youth football. Our number one concern will always be the safety of our kids. 

KNOW YOUR ROLE........

Are you a Coach Today? Are you a Spectator Today? Are you an Official Today? Are you a Player Today? 

You can be only one of these at your event. 

Let the Coaches Coach, Let the Officials Officiate, Allow the Kids to PLAY! 

   

It is almost registration time of the year. See your local association for dates and times. 

Attention: Sports Physicals must be turned in to league and be in coaches possession prior to participation. Sports physicals are valid for two seasons just like school sports so a sports physical dated 2018 or 2019 is valid.

Rogue Valley Youth Football consists of these associations. South Valley WolfPack (Ashland, Phoenix, Talent), Medford, Central Point, Upper Rogue, Grants Pass/Rogue River and Surrounding Area.  Participants must register with association in area that they attend school.

Youth Football Safety Facts Parents – Did You Know??? 

*Organized youth football, like Pop Warner, has 12% fewer injuries per capita than does organized soccer in the same age range? 2 

*Organized youth football has 50% fewer injuries than does bicycle riding in the same age range? 2 

*Organized youth football has 74% fewer injuries than does skateboarding in the same age range? 2 

*Not only is the injury rate lower in youth football than these activities, but also there is “an absence of catastrophic head and neck injuries found at higher levels (of football)”? 1


Why is Youth Football so relatively safe? The answers are simple:

1.          Equipment: All league players wear first class protective gear, including helmets and shoulder pads.  Other sports like soccer, have frequent player contact incidents, but without the benefit of protective equipment.

2.          Age/Weight Restrictions: All league players are divided into specific age and weight divisions, which prevents dramatic differences between players who may collide during play. Moreover, the velocity at which younger players may collide is dramatically less than that which their older counterparts may experience.  The combination of less speed and less weight than at higher levels of play, tend to reduce collisions in youth football to a very small factor, in terms of injuries.

 Grants Pass Youth Football 

Grants Pass Youth Football will follow the team formation rules as set forth by the 2013 Oregon Youth Football Rules and Regulations. Team formations are in conjunction with Rogue Valley Youth Football and Willamette Valley Youth Football. Grants Pass participants must live within the following school boundaries.

Grants Pass Youth Football team formation is based on public and private schools (North GP, South GP & Rogue River). The Rogue River is the boundary between North GP and South GP. Rogue River has no geographic boundaries dividing that community. Gold Hill student athletes fall under the Central Point Youth Football Association jurisdiction.  

In the event the number of participants requires two or more teams in any one division, North GP, South GP and Rogue River schools may be grouped together as directed by the Association President & League Commissioner to balance teams.  

North: Fleming Middle School , St. Anne Catholic School,  Brighton Academy,  Vineyard Christian School, North Middle School, Grants Pass Seventh-Day Adventist, Highland Elementary School, Manzanita Elementary School, Parkside Elementary School, Wolf Creek Elementary School. *       

 South: New Hope Christian School, South Middle School, Madrona Elementary School, Allen Dale Elementary School, Jerome Prairie Elementary School, Redwood Elementary School, Lincoln Savage Middle School, Fruitdale Elementary School, Riverside Elementary. 

Note: Riverside Elementary and Parkside Elementary have students at each school, who will split up and will attend both Grants Pass Middle Schools. This is due to students who live on both sides of the Rogue River. Grants Pass Youth Football has decided that Parkside Elementary will remain as a North public school and Riverside Elementary (even though located on the North side of the river) will be considered a South public school.    

Rogue River rogue River Elementary School, Evans Valley Elementary School, Christian Life School, Rogue River Middle School, Mustard Seed School.
