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.

Acceleration North Summer Training

Summer Training with Acceleration North

 (See above video)

RAYFA and Acceleration North have lined up a series of 6-speed treadmill workouts to go along with our summer weight training.  Athletes will finish lifting on Mondays and then carpool 1 mile to Acceleration North for incline treadmill sprint training and resistance band speed development.

These treadmills can improve 40-yard dash times by .02-.04 tenths of a second.  If you run a 5.1 40-yard dash, imagine running a 4.8 40-yard dash.   Let's be honest... SPEED WINS.

The C2 Performance Training System is bands that attach to athletes' ankles.  We can overload hip flexors, hip extensors, hamstrings, quads, and glutes to increase power and force which equates to SPEED.

Details below:

  *   6 Speed Treadmill Sessions - $120 (normally $215)
  *Pick and schedule the session times that work for you! Very flexible training times
  *   If you miss or cannot make your scheduled time slot, we allow athletes to schedule the workout on a different day and time.
