Rider Club Football was established in 2010 to build a long term, self-sustaining football program that feeds into Roosevelt High School by providing 3rd to 7th graders with a safe and encouraging environment to learn the great game of football.

NEXT FRIDAY, OCT 13 - RCF Night at Roosevelt Varsity Game

At halftime of the Roosevelt Varsity home game against Sioux City North on Friday, October 13th, our players will be recognized for participating in Rider Club Football. 

This game will start at 7pm, there is no preceeding Freshman game so it will start on time. If you haven't been to a game this year, please be aware that the lines for tickets can get pretty long, especially near kickoff time.

6:30 - Players wearing RCF game jerseys are permitted free entrance to ALL Roosevelt home games at Drake Stadium.

6:40 - Our players and coaches will meet at 6:40pm on the northwest corner of the stadium to form a tunnel to welcome the Varsity squad to the field (2 lines) from west goal post in north end zone towards the locker room doors. We will head back to the grandstand after that.

7:00 - Kickoff

2:00 left in the 2nd Quarter - We will again meet at the northwest corner of the stadium to get lined up.

Halftime - When the marching band is done performing RCF players and coaches will be announced.  Following the recognition players and coaches return to their seats.

This is not a required event but it is a nice way for the players to be cheered on by the home crowd for all their hard work this season.
 

Thank you for your support and good luck at your games this weekend!

IMPORTANT - Equipment Handouts - NEW PROCESS THIS YEAR!

NEW EASY EQUIPMENT HANDOUTS!

Make sure to sign up on http://riderclubfootball.com, pay... and then come get your player sized and equipped this Saturday!

Instead of having two separate large Equipment Handouts with Parent Meetings, this year there will be four smaller Equipment Handout sessions.  Parent meetings will be later with your team’s head coach, closer to the start of practices in mid-August. All players MUST attend ONE of these Equipment Handouts.
 
Please bring your player to Equipment Handout this Saturday morning (7/22) from 8am to Noon at the equipment shed in-between Hubbell Elementary and Roosevelt High School.  It’s a two-story brick building right next to the Roosevelt track.  Enter Center Street by turning west from 42nd Street.


 
Register your player at http://riderclubfootball.com
  • Registering online before arriving will save you time at the Handout, you’ll only need to have your player fitted and receive equipment
  • Payment of at least 50% must have been made before equipment can be distributed
  • Payment can be made online at any time on http://riderclubfootball.com
  • If you’d prefer to write a check or do not have a computer you can sign up at the Equipment Handout, we will have computers/tablets
Players will be measured for and will receive:
  • Practice Pants
  • Practice Jerseys
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Helmets / Chin Straps
    (Game Jerseys will be distributed by coaches at a later date)
Only two equipment handouts remaining:
  • Sunday, Aug 13 - 4:00p to 6:00p
  • Monday, Aug 14 - 4:30p to 6:00p
Practice will begin the week of August 14th. Full payment must be made on all accounts will be required by August 15th unless arrangements are made.  If you have questions about payments or scholarships please email   or talk to one of our Program Coordinators (Jen Velde or Heather Minear) at the Equipment Handouts.

Check out the Upcoming Events link on the new http://riderclubfootball.com site for all upcoming events including Sunday Night skills camps, our Golf Outing and more as we get closer to the season.
