RAYFA Mission Statement

Our goal at Roseville Youth Football Association is to provide every player with a positive and engaging youth football experience. 

We are passionate about sourcing the best local leagues, facilities, and equipment. RAYFA coaches go through strict background checks and safety training programs so that each player may enjoy success and reach their true potential as a youth player. 

Youth football at RAYFA aims to provide all players with a safe, fundamental knowledge of football coupled with good competition and the ultimate focus on fun. We will make sure that every player is coached so that they have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills and be the best player they can be. Furthermore, a focus on putting the team first, filling in wherever need be to help the team succeed. 

The RAYFA board and volunteers will work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that every participating player understands the significance of teamwork, self-discipline, sportsmanship, respect for the game, teammates, opponents, and adults such as parents, coaches, and officials.

Ultimately, youth football is about development and fun. We hope that every player feels they received that experience in total at the end of the year and is excited to return the following season.
