Sign up NOW for youth football and cheerleading!  Registration is open until mid-August and it's only $50 for flag/cheer and $75 for tackle.  That INCLUDES uniforms!!!  Teams are broken down by school district and kids practice near home.  We have Flag Football for Kindergarten and First Graders, Tackle for Second and Third Graders, and Tackle for Fourth and Fifth Graders.  Cheerleading is available for K-5th.
 

Again, uniforms and equipment ARE PROVIDED in this league.  They are checked out during uniform fittings before the start of the season and must be returned in the same condition at the end of the season.  VLPRA will contact parents via email about uniform fittings at a later date.

Please sign up for the grade your child will be in during the 2017-2018 school year and register according to the middle school your child will eventually attend.

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST PLAY IN THEIR RESPECTIVE SCHOOL DISTRICTS.  PLEASE LOOK FOR YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL AND THEIR CORRESPONDING TEAM BELOW*

WESTSIDE ELEMENTARY & HAHIRA ELEMENTARY ----  REGISTER FOR HAHIRA MIDDLE

CLYATTVILLE, LAKE PARK, MOULTON BRANCH ELEMENTARY ---- REGISTER FOR LOWNDES MIDDLE

PINE GROVE & DEWAR ELEMENTARY ---- REGISTER FOR PINE GROVE MIDDLE 

SALLAS MAHONE & SL MASON ELEMENTARY ---- REGISTER FOR VALDOSTA MIDDLE 

WG NUNN, PINEVALE, JL LOMAX ELEMENTARY ---- REGISTER FOR JL NEWBERN MIDDLE

We will also form teams for private/charter schools that have enough participants.  If there aren't enough participants to form a team, your child will play for the public school he or she is districted to attend.  

If a district produces enough players to field more than one team, all players must attend an evaluation day which will be set at a later date. Players will then be drafted onto teams if necessary. This process helps to maintain a balanced, competitive, and equal league. 

*This league is run solely by the VLPRA, not by the school. 

Please call VLPRA (not the school or the school district)
if you have questions about your child's team or district.
