...The Sheldon tradition begins here



  1. Safety
    Players compete with players of similar age and size. Willamette Valley Youth Football enforces a strict grade,weight matrix that not eliminates but definitely reduces the risk and reality of serious injuries.
  2. Quality Coaching
    All coaches that coach in the Sheldon Youth Football association are required to not only take and pass training courses on how to recognize signs of concussions and the protocol to follow once a player has been diagnosed with symptoms of a concussion. All coaches are also required to take and pass training courses through USA football on "Heads up training" and proper tackling techniques. Once all of their training is concluded and documented they are certified through USA football and AAU as well.
  3. No Tryouts
    Willamette Valley Youth football does not have "tryouts" or "cutting" of players, coaches will conduct evaluation drills during practices to determine playing positions but every player that registers play!
  4. Minimum Plays
    Every player participates in every game under the rules of play. Depending on the size of the players team each player eligible to play will be guaranteed a minimum number of plays. This is strictly enforced and results in an immediate forfeiture of the game if a team is found to have violated the MPR rule.

Check out the new Rookie Tackle rules for K/1 and 2/3 @ www.wvyfc.com
- K/1 will be playing a 5 man game on a shorter field
- 2/3 will be playing a 9 man game on a shorter field

These rule changes were adopted from USA Football's Rookie tackle program to implement a better transistion for the younger kids into a full 11 man tackle football game.
