Tackle Football Registration is OPEN

Registration is currently open for the Fall 2023 Tackle Football Season (5/11/23 – 9/25/23). Take advantage of our Early Bird Special ($20.00 off) until 6/30/2023.

Select Tackle Football Tab and 'Register online'. 

Before you registger - check the Age/Weight matrix to determine the appropriate weight class to register:

For example: A player's football age is based on their age on October 1st of the current season. For example; if a player is 8 years old on October 1, and turns 9 on October 2nd, then they would register as an 8 year old in the Anklebiter Division (as long as they are 90lbs and under). If they are over 90lbs – then they would register in the 80LB division with no weight restrictions. 

Anklebiters Division

Age 7:  No Weight Limit

Age 8:  90lbs & Under

Age 9:  55lbs & Under

80 LB Division

Age 8:  No Weight Limit

Age 9:  100lbs & Under

Age 10:  85lbs & Under

Age 11:  80lbs & Under







***IMPORTANT – Player DMV Issued Child ID Cards***

Each player MUST have a valid ID card issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DMV Child ID Cards are needed to verify each player with the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL) at weigh-in. The weigh-ins will take place in August of each season. Please make arrangements to obtain an ID as soon as possible through DMV. The ID can take 7 – 14 business days to receive the ID in the mail. Applicants for a Child ID Card must appear in-person at a DMV customer service center (for both originals and replacements). The cost of a Child ID Card is $2 per year (minimum $10; maximum $16).

FCYFL will no longer accept the following documentation at weigh-in. 

  • Receipts of purchase will not be accepted. Everyone needs to have the actual Child ID Card. So it is extremely important to allow enough time to receive the ID card in the mail!
  • School paper work are no longer accepted
  • Passports are not accepted 

Note: If your child already has a Child ID Card, please verify the expiration date is still valid.

Big Night at the Northern VA Football Hall of Fame

RYA had a big night at the Annual Northern VA Football Hall of fame banquet. 

RYA's Vice President and Tackle Football Commissioner Jermey Lee won Coach of the Year for FCYFL Central Division. His 100lb team had a undefeated season and captured the 100lb Central Division Championship. Well deserved and congrats!

Rising Freshman Deylen Jones (from our 130lb American Division team) was honored for his achievements as a student athlete. We look forward to seeing Deylen future accomplishments.

RYA former players Isaiah Ragland (Centreville HS) and Tony Rojas (Fairfax HS) won High School Players of the Year. In addition, Tony Rojas won Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year. Tony Rojas is attending Penn State University on full football scholarship and Isaiah Ragland will be attending Villanova University on a full football scholarship.

They are both of great character and from wonderful supporting families. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments as student athletes and proud to say they are former players of RYA . We wish them the very best as they transition into the next steps of becoming responsible young men. We will be watching them on Saturdays!
