Our fall flag football season runs from August to October each fall.

Practices are primarily held Tuesday and Thursday evenings on the Meyer Middle School fields from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. For more information, visit our Practices page.


Games Days are held primarily held on Saturdays on the Meyer Middle School fields between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm. For more information, visit our Game Day page.


Youth players are separated into three divisions based on the grade in school they will be entering that fall. We have a 1st/2nd Grade Division, 3rd/4th Grade Division, and a 5th/6th Grade Division.

Each division has specific rules, field sizes, playbooks, etc. Check out the details for your youth player's division page for more information.

3rd/4th Grade Division

5th/6th Grade Division


The River Falls Youth Football Association has a number of events that coincide with our fall season.

We start off with a Combine Night to assess the skills of youth players which help us create fair and even teams.

Summer Camp & Season Kickoff consists of hanging out with our River Falls Wildcat football players for a fun few hours of practice drills and games. Afterwards, we have our Season Kickoff lunch for your entire family.

In place of one of our practice nights, we head over to the UWRF campus to practice with the UW Falcons football team.

Another favorite event is when our youth players form a tunnel for the Wildcat football players to run on/off the field during a home game halftime. In addition, while the Wildcats are prepping for the second half, we run onto the field and participate in some fun activities.

Want the thrill of a night game? One of our season's games is played at night Under the Lights on the High School field. Always a highlight of our youth players!

You're all set - what's next?
