South Suburban Youth Football League (SSYFL)
Rosemount is a member of the South Suburban Youth Football League (SSYFL) for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade traveling program. Communities participating in the SSYFL include Apple Valley, Bloomington, Burnsville, Eagan, Eastview, Farmington, Lakeville North, Lakeville South, Shakopee, and Rosemount.
Being a part of the SSYFL has many benefits for our community and our players. Team rosters include a manageable size (e.g., an average of 19-22 players per team), and with ten communities participating in the league we do not anticipate playing the same teams more than once outside of playoffs.
The 6th grade Program Director is Dave Voth, and the 7th and 8th grade Program Director is Arch Hasler.
Players are welcome to join Rosemount Football as part of the SSYFL during the years that they are in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. A player’s grade is based on the 2019-2020 school year. Players have to be within the Rosemount High School Boundary Attendance area.
Level of Commitment
A level of time commitment including 4-5 events per week is required for the SSYFL. This is due to the level of play, the complexity of the offense and defense, along with the high level of teamwork that goes into forming a football team at the level of competition in the 6th-8th grade traveling program.
