Rouse Youth Football Association (RYFA) was established in the Spring of 2012 and is proudly operated in Leander, TX with the support of Rouse High School.
RYFA is the first youth football organization to offer the feeder program which teaches the fundamentals of being a Rouse Raider starting as early as the age of 5!
We are a consistent football & cheer program that starts as early as age 5 and continues through High School!
RYFA is one of several leagues within the American Youth Football (AYF) Central Texas Conference.
Central Texas AYF now operates each league as a feeder program, partnering with the local high school coaches to develop young athletes in a way which lays the foundation for future expectations in their programs.
Join us for a unique opportunity to mix the best of youth football with a bonded community backing Rouse Raider football and cheer!!!
