NOTICE - Support our Vestal Youth Cheerleaders!
Please come out and support our Vestal Youth Cheerleaders at their competition on Saturday, October 28 at Union-Endicott High School. The Vestal Gold cheer team's competition begins around 9:00am. The Mini Green and Gold will perform during the afternoon round of competition at 1:00pm. The girls have been cheering their hearts out for the football players and entertaining the fans in the stand all season, and it would be wonderful to see our football families out in the stands cheering and supporting our cheerleaders!
Please come wearing your green and gold, and football players come wearing your jerseys!! It would truly be amazing to see a "Sea of green and gold" in the stands. Hope to see you there!
Vestal Youth Football League
“YOU can learn more about character on the 2 yard line than anywhere else in life." - Paul Dietzel / LSU
The Vestal Youth Football League and Cheer was originally founded in 1971 and provides full contact - collision youth football and cheer experiences for participants ages 7 to 12. The VYFL also offers flag football for student athletes ages 4.5 to 6 years olds. In 2016, the VYFL joined the Souther Tier Youth Football League (STYFL).
The football league consists of seven teams: two flag, two 7-8, two 9-10, and one 11-12. All football practices are held at Arnold Park in Vestal, starting the first week of August. Practices are three days per week and typically go from 6 to 8 pm in the summer and transition to 5:30 to 7:30 once school begins. Beginning in 2016, all home football games are held at Dick Hoover Stadium on Sundays.
Cheer will consist of two teams: the first age group 6-8 and the second group 9-12. Practices are typically held at Arnold Park twice per week starting the first week of August and teams perform during football games and at competitions.
Each season is capped with a end of year party for participants and their families to enjoy.
The Vestal Youth Football League is in search of two volunteers to join Our Board of Directors. If you are interested in serving as League Vice President, Flag Football Director or Concessions Director, please contact us!
