Anderson Youth Football and Cheer

Anderson Youth Football and Cheer



We believe in positive coaching techniques. Our coaching staff is experienced and attends coaching clinics every season. Our goal is to teach proper technique, build team pride and self-esteem. We do not sanction humiliating criticism of our players. We treat our players with respect and we emphasize the discipline, but also the fun of playing youth football.


We are a private non-profit youth football organization, with teams for grades first through sixth, serving the youth of the Forest Hills School district.  Practices are held three times a week; times are set by the head coach.   Practices last about 2 hours and are held at Nagel Middle School on Nagel Road or Ayer Elementary on Forest Road. Practices start mid-July.

Games are held on weekend afternoons.  The teams usually play Saturdays. Most of our teams play at least three games at our home field (Anderson High School or Turpin High School); the rest are played on our opponents' fields. Games last about one hour. There is a small admission charge for spectators, set by the League. The first game is played in mid-August. We play about an ten-game season, lasting from August into late October, this is including playoffs. Teams may play more games, which are considered Invitationals sponsored by other leagues. 

We supply all uniforms and equipment. You will only need to buy turf shoes. You will receive a helmet, shoulder pads, padded pants, game jersey, and a mouthpiece. Everything but the mouthpiece is returned to us at the end of the season. 

NO BENCHWARMERS!   We are a youth football organization with a minimum play rule. At the 1st through 4th grades, all players who have attended practice regularly and demonstrated knowledge of their position will play a minimum of 8 plays per game.   (This is equivalent to one-quarter's play on either offense or defense.)   (On rare occasions, a player may be restricted from play for disciplinary or safety reasons.)   If these age levels go into Division or Championship games, the "8-play" rules changes to a "may-play" rule, with no set number of plays promised.   The 5th and 6th grade teams are more competitive.   There is no minimum playing time promised, but the coaches do try to get all their players into the games. All players play at Invitational games. 

AWARDS - Every player will receive a recognition from the league for the commitment and effort for the each season played.

Our cheerleading program is offered from grades K-6th.  Practices normally take place twice a week at Ayer Elementary School located on Forest Road.  We provide uniforms, which are returned at the end of the season to the league, and players are in charge of purchasing cheer shoes.
