*Parents who would like their child to play up/down from their program of eligibility must request league approval.  Please register your child for their eligible program and email the league to make your request.   If the request is approved, a league officer will update your registration.


New Youth Football Players*  who sign up by DATE TBD but do not yet belong to a team, will participate in a league draft. The draft has players undergo a series of skill drills so that coaches can evaluate new players for spaces on their team.  Players will leave that day knowing which team they will be part of for the season.  This will take place on DATE/TIME TBD at the Roger Allen Football Field.   
     *The draft is for players who reside in Rochester or from a surrounding town that does not automatically get assigned to one of our surrounding town teams based on residency.  Please see our FAQ page for more information on Teams/Residency
