3 ways your child will benefit from playing youth football

Players benefit physically, socially and emotionally from playing football

Football is blue-collar America. It’s working class, working together.

In this game – America’s favorite game – there are no isolation plays that cast a team aside. Nor are there intentional walks to avoid an obstacle.

In life, like in football, the easy route is rarely an option.

Jeff Wesley Memorial
In memory of Jeff Wesley, with great  appreciation for his commitment as a long time Referee, friend and great contributor to our River Valley Youth Football League.  Thank you to the Wesley Family! 

Also in honor of Jeff, all teams will be wearing a JW sticker on their helmets in the 2011 season!


Dear River Valley Youth Football League:


I am beyond touched and at a sincere loss of words on the tribute that your organization did for my Dad, Jeff Wesley.

As his oldest daughter, I know how much this would have meant to him and how much he loved officiating youth football games. 

Your League's love and generosity is a welcome support to my family and I as we continue to feel my Dad's loss.

Thank you for thinking of him in such a meaningful way!

Best of luck to you in your upcoming season.  We are rooting for you.

In gratitude,
Nadeja Wesley
