The Jr. Red Devils Football Club is operated for the benefit of its youth participants. This will be done by providing interested players the opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport of football through instructional and competitive participation. The plan is to instill a life-long love and understanding of the game while having fun and stressing the importance of good sportsmanship. This will be accomplished through a natural progression for a player that demonstrates the desire, enthusiasm and ability to compete at progressive levels of play.
The program is open to boys and girls in grades 3-12. All games are played at the Ridge High School football field, where we play up to five games at the same time. The games last 60 minutes, including a five-minute halftime.
As players enter the high school field area, there is a board posted which lists the team rosters for that night, the coaches, the field assignments and the jersey color (white or green) for each team. Our jerseys are reversible, so your child’s team color may change each week. The team rosters change every week, so your child will play with different teammates every week throughout the season. With no team standings, or even team names, we have had good success in maintaining fair play and steady competition over the 9 year history of the league.
If players arrive late, they will be placed on any team in order to even out the sides. To minimize confusion for your child, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your game.
Every child will play an equal amount of time, and they are encouraged to play any position they want. Coaches ensure that playing time at each position is allocated fairly. It is very important to us that the players are having fun. The more fun they have, the more they will learn.
The Jr. Red Devils League is run entirely by volunteers, and we are actively seeking new volunteers to help. Previous football experience is definitely not needed or required. If your child will be in this league for the next two years or more, we need your help. If you have computer skills, communication skills, people skills, or just like seeing kids enjoy football, please consider joining us this fall. The success of this league depends solely on volunteers; we really could use your help.
If you have questions or are interested in joining, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
