The objective of RFYF is to teach kids in 5th-8th grade the football and cheerleading skills they need to be successful at Rock Falls High School, while promoting good sportsmanship and physical and mental development through healthy, organized competition and teamwork.


If you reside in Rock Falls IL, and your student will be in 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade on Sept 1, 2019, you can register them to play or cheer in our league. This year, all registration is taking place online on this website.

Please register online for Rock Falls Youth Football and Cheer in May, 2019.  Monday July 15, is the first day of equipment and raffle ticket handout, so all students must be registered at that time. Here is how to register:

1.) On this website. You can use a computer, ipad, tablet, smartphone, etc. Click the "Register" button at the top right of this website. This will take you to an online questionnaire, as well as taking any payment via credit card. You can still register online and opt to pay by cash or check and turn in the money at the RF Library, RFHS, or at Equipment Handout in July.
2.) At The Rock Falls Library - they will direct you to a computer and this website. You can turn in check or cash payment to the librarian.
3.) At Rock Falls High School - they will direct you to a computer and this website. You can turn in check or cash payment to the office.


The fee to play Football is $100 per player. There are three ways to pay this fee:
1.) Pay $100
2.) Pay $50 and sell 10 raffle tickets at $5.00 each
3.) Sell 20 raffle tickets at $5 each

The fee to Cheer is $50 per participant. There are two ways to pay this fee:
1.) Pay $50.00
2.) Sell 10 raffle tickets at $5.00 each

Participants will receive their game jerseys/cheer uniform only when the above commitments are fulfilled.

EACH PARTICIPANT WILL NEED TO HAVE A CURRENT PHYSICAL. THE DOWNLOADABLE FORM IS HERE as well as on our home page. This form will need to be filled out and signed by a physician, and then turned in at equipment hand-out, or at the first practice. Students unfortunately are not able to practice until the form is completed and turned in.

All of this information and much more will be explained in detail at the Parent Meeting. It is important that all parents/guardians come to our parent meeting. This meeting will be held at the Rock Falls High School Cafeteria. There are two dates for this meeting. Please choose and attend the one that will work best for you. The dates for the meetings are Thurs May 23 and Friday May 24.  Both will begin at 5:30pm. Players are welcome to attend. 

For those participants who would like to partially or fully fund their participation fee by selling raffle tickets, here is the info: Raffle tickets will be handed out during equipment hand out, or during the first week of practice. All raffle ticket stubs plus the money collected will be required to be turned in at or before the first game. There will be a drawing and prizes awarded. 
Players choosing to sell raffle tickets will not receive a game jersey until their ticket stubs and money are turned in.

RFYF Merchandise: Dick's Sporting Goods has a small RFYF store on this website. If you would like to order RFYF merchandise for your family, just click on the "store" tab at the top of this website.  A small percentage of sales is given back to the league.


 What is Football "Camp"?   Football Camp is a fun week of optional non-contact, grass drills practice which occurs before the official season begins. Camp is for all ages, including kids from the NIYTF League, our RFYF league, and the RFHS teams. All players are encouraged to attend. TAKE NOTE THAT FOOTBALL CAMP FOR 2019 IS CANCELLED.
