ABOUT WVYFC

 With over 17 years of success providing youth tackle football to the Willamette Valley area we have expanded to include Roseburg in our regular season schedule!  Some areas are also now offering sideline cheer.

We offer kids living within the Willamette Valley and surrounding areas, that are Kindergarten through 8th grade, the opportunity to participate in a safe and enjoyable environment for learning the game of tackle football and practicing sideline cheer. We are a feeder program into the high schools and you will find that many associations work closely with their high schools Athletic Director and/or Head coach to progressively prepare your children for highschool athletics. You will find information about upcoming events and important dates as well as downloadable forms on this site. If you have any questions please contact your area rep.  If you are unsure of who your rep is you can go to our contacts page to find a list of representatives or choose the school your child attends (from the drop down on our home page) to be directed to your area website.

You may notice some areas do not offer Cheer at this time, this is probably resulting from that area not having a volunteer with the knowledge that has offered to step up and start the program.  If you are interested in being that volunteer contact your area rep, you can also contact your rep to find the closest association offering cheer for your child to particpate in. 

If you find your area does not have football program or you are homeschooled please contact [email protected] and we will get you in contact with the closest assocation based on your address.  In addition if your area is not already affiliated with Willamette Valley Youth Football and Cheer and you would like to be a part of our regular season schedule and/or participate at our Championships games at Autzen Stadium please contact us to discuss further options.

AAU
Every player that participates within Willamette Valley Youth Football and Cheer will receive additional insurance coverage that is included in your registeration, to cover them throughout the entire year, in any sport they play, even after the football season has concluded. Coaches and staff will also be covered and trained through AAU as well.  AAU provides every player, coach, volunteer, association, and league insurance that goes well above and beyond the average coverage in youth sports. AAU also provides extensive background checks for each coach and volunteer participating with WVYFC; in order for your coaches and volunteers to recieve their badge they must pass the background check, be issued an AAU number (that notifies us they have passed the background check and are now covered under ins) as well as turn in their certificates showing they have completed the Heads Up Football training and Positive Coaching training.  At least one coach must also be first aid certified on every team  You can find more information on AAU here;  https://aausports.org
