It all starts here
The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) estimates that between 60% and 70% of all NFL players began their careers playing in youth football programs.
We require annual background checks of Coaches, Board of Directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players and/or spirit participants. The purpose of these background checks is, first and foremost, to protect the children.

Willamette Valley Youth Football & Cheer is the ONLY youth football program that sets and enforces a strict GRADE & WEIGHT MATRIX that reduces the risk and reality of injuries. Did you know that youth tackle football has 12% fewer injuries per capita among 5-15 year olds than organized soccer in the same age range!
