Register NOW for our school-based Youth Football & Cheerleading League!  

All equipment is provided in the VLPRA Youth Football League.  Helmets, pads, jerseys, pants, and even socks are provided- the only thing you bring is cleats.   Cheerleading uniforms are provided, too!  The program runs through the fall with about 10 games and a post season tournament.  We also have Athletic AND Academic All Star Teams!

Teams are based on school district, so whichever middle school your child is districted for will be the district your child plays in.  For instance, if you have a first-grader at Lake Park Elementary, then he or she will be on the Lowndes Middle Team since that is where he or she will eventually attend middle school.  Same thing goes for the city.  Scroll down past the flyers for the school breakdown and more info.

The breakdown is this:
Westside Elementary & Hahira Elementary---> Register for Hahira Middle Team
Clyattville, Lake Park, & Moulton Branch Elementary----> Register for Lowndes Middle Team
Pine Grove & Dewar Elementary----> Register for Pine Grove Middle Team
WG Nunn, Pinevale, & JL Lomax----> Register for JL Newbern Middle Team
Sallas Mahone & SL Mason Elementary----> Register for Valdosta Middle Team
Valwood----> Register for Valwood

Is your child enrolled in a different private school or home-schooled?  Call us and we will be happy to talk to you about your options!

We will do an evaluation and draft if necessary.  Practices will be held at North Lowndes Park in Hahira, South Lowndes in Lake Park, Freedom Park, Vallotton Athletic Complex, and Scott Park.  Games run September to November, with play finishing up before Thanksgiving.  Our All-Star program runs through December.  Games will be held at the parks mentioned above and of course at Bazemore-Hyder and Martin Stadiums!

Football and cheerleading uniforms as well as helmets and pads are included in the registration fees.   It’s $75 for tackle football and $50 for flag football and cheerleading. Parents can register their children online at www.vlpra.com or at VLPRA’s main office at 1901 North Forrest Street in Valdosta.  The league is solely run by VLPRA.  Please do not contact the schools with questions.

***We will need coaches!!!!  All coaches must go through a background check prior to holding practice.  The background check is free.
