The Rams football program, in its 54th year, is governed by a board of elected officers, head coaches and committee members. Teams are fielded in several weight classes per Bill George Youth Football League (BGYFL) guidelines. Home games are played at Graf Park on Saturdays and Sundays. The fee includes a game jersey, game pants, belt and mouthpiece. The program will fit and loan each player a helmet, shoulder pads and rib pads for the season. Players will need to purchase their own cleats, practice jersey, practice pants and pant pads.

The program runs August through November, with practice during the week. Each coach develops a practice schedule and will update their team individually. Players are expected to attend all practices unless approved by the coach. Evaluations are held the week of August 2.

All participants are expected to support the fundraising program. Details will be provided at registration.

Early registration is very helpful to the Rams football program in order to determine quantity of teams/coaches needed!
