RFL New Direction

Hello Richfield Football Community,
Thank you for entrusting the Richfield Football League with the opportunity to
teach your children the great game of football. We believe our purpose is to promote the game of football, teach and play the game in a safe manner, and to learn good sportsmanship through the spirit of competitive team play. We are committed to provide a safe environment and will ensure that every person involved in the coaching or training of football will have each child’s best interest and well being in mind.

The game continues to evolve at all levels and we want to lead change in youth football to make Richfield a safe environment for as many children as possible. Reflecting on our purpose as an organization and the future of football, the RFL has decided to make a change to the programs we will offer this year and in the years to come. For these reasons, along with the growth in flag football participation and the decline of tackle football in Richfield, the 2019 season will be the last year the RFL will offer youth tackle football.

In 2019 we will offer Kindergarten-6th grade flag football and tackle football for 5th-6th graders. All 5th graders will have the option to play tackle football in 2019. In the fall of 2020 the RFL will only offer flag football for grades K-6.

Please let us know how we can support you and your children in the years ahead to continue this great game. If you would like to know more about why we are changing to all flag football please call us at 651-336-3225.

Signed,
Kris Pulford
RFL President & RHS Varsity Football Head Coach
