General program information


VLPRA’s Football & Cheerleading Program is school-based, which means your child will play for the Vikings, Wildcats, Valiants, etc. We divide kids into teams based on the middle school they will attend. If your child goes to S.L. Mason, he or she will be on the VMS team, if he or she attends Hahira Elementary, then it’s the HMS team, and so on. Practices are located in the school districts, so you do not have to drive far. Games are around the city and county- including at the high school stadiums! Registration runs from May-August. Games run September - November with a regular season and playoffs. Games are in the evenings on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. We also have games on Saturday mornings and afternoons. We may play games on Sunday afternoons if necessary.

After playoffs, our All-Star Program culminates in the annual Junior Winnersville Classic- a youth version of the nationally recognized high school rivalry.

Boys football is open to Kindergartners through 5th graders (for 2020/2021 school year). Girls Flag is open to Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Fee includes your uniform and ALL equipment for Football and uniform, pom-poms, bow, and bloomers for Cheerleading!!  Scroll down to see full equipment information.  We also need coaches!  Click the link below to volunteer.
