We are an independent Tackle Football Program in a competitive travel league. This is not a recreational program and we have no affiliation with the town of Griswold's Parks and Rec. Program. Therefore Tackle Football playing time is not guaranteed and is up to coaches discretion.
FIRST WEEK OF FOOTBALL PRACTICE IS SHORTS, SHIRT AND CLEATS! NO FOOTBALL EQUIPMENT NEEDED!
Tackle football practices are typically Monday through Thursday evenings with one game on the weekend, either a Saturday afternoon/night or Sunday morning/afternoon Practices are on the practice football field behind high school softball field (Practices are based on coach's discretion and are not scheduled by the league)
In season if you have specific questions about practice or games please contact your coach and not the league
Cheerleaders will practice 3 nights a week outside at the Lisbon Middle School until the start of the fall school year. Starting in September they will move to the Griswold Middle School indoors
There are playoffs ending with a Super Bowl at the end of regular season for tackle football and a Cheer Competition for all competition level cheerleaders (Seniors, Juniors, Micros,Minis)
We will also be introducing our new PeeWee division for the 2023 season. This will be a non-competitive instructional tackle division for 6 and 7 year olds. If you are 7 years old on 6/1/23 then you are eligible for Pee Wee. If you are 8 years old on by 6/1/23 then you would be on Micros. There will will be a similar travel game schedule like our competitive teams but there will not be playoffs or a Super Bowl.
Flag football is for 4,5 and 6 year olds. They typically practice 2 nights a week with one game on the weekend, the season is 10 weeks starting the first week of August. We provide flag uniform shirts for the players. All that is required are shorts and cleats.
For tackle football we provide helmet, shoulder pads and game jersey for football players (black game pants, cleats, practice pants, practice jersey and mouth guard are player's responsibility)
This year we have partnered with Stadium System to create an online store where you can buy all the football necessities that you will need for practice and games. We will announce once the store is open.
Cheerleaders are provided with uniforms (shoes, bloomers, bodysuit, and competition bows are cheerleader's responsibility)
Game schedules usually come out sometime in August and are created by the SNEYFC
Emails go out to registered athletes as we get closer to the start of the season with more specific information.
