About Us

River City Youth Football and Cheer League (RCYFL) was formed in 2014 as a 501(c)(3) corporation.  RCYFL is a competitive football and cheering organization in Richmond, VA.  It is a primary purpose of RCYFL to provide a strong environment to implant firmly in the minds of the youth of our community respect for authority, good sportsmanship, the understanding of fair play, honesty, loyalty, courage, and reverence. A continual commitment to this goal is also a primary expectation for the coaches, parents, and players who participate.

RCYFL offers the following differences from most leagues in the area:

1.      Divisions based on ages and weights;

2.      A compressed football season schedule;

3.      An 8 on 8 Flag Division.

RCYFL has developed divisions based on ages and weights.  We believe specific ages and weights are important in the safety of the game as all kids mature at different ages.  The divisions offered can be found on the main menu.

RCYFL will offer a compressed football season schedule.  The preseason will begin in mid-August and end in mid-November.  There will be a minimum 8 game season ending in the playoffs or a bowl game between similar record opponents.  “Wednesday Night Lights” is a special game for the players to participate in during the season that will enable us to compress the season by one week.

RCYFL will also be offering a different kind of Flag football.  The Flag Division will play 8 on 8 with required offensive and defensive linemen.  We believe the offensive and defensive linemen positions are important in developing the skills needed to play tackle football.

RCYFL is currently accepting applications for associations and individual teams interested in playing in the 2015 season.  RCYFL offers the status of Full Participant and Partial Participant.  As per our By-laws, the statuses are defined as follows:
