2022 Fall Tackle Football and Cheerleading

Eastside Dolphins - 

2022 Tackle Football (8U, 10U & 12U) and Cheerleading registration is open and will remain open through Friday, July 1, 2022.


Participants will be placed in a division based on their age on August 31, 2022 (no exceptions). The Football Fee ($170) includes registration, game uniform (pants, jersey and helmet decal) and practice jersey with the player's game-jersey number and name across the back.

Individuals are responsible for providing a white helmet, mouth guard, shoulder pads, cleats and practice pants. In general, equipment is a safety investment and will be used for several seasons. We will hold an equipment swap & sell within the first two weeks of July to help families. We are also sponsored by Dick's Sporting Goods and will provide a 20% off coupon to all participants to assist with equipment costs.

Required Participant / Parent Registration Forms

For reference, the table below contains the football sizes and weight restrictions by age group. For players that exceed the weight restriction by age group, a 90s jersey must be worn. The Youth Football Ops Manual contains specific rules on page 11 of 23.

League / Ages Football Size Weight Restriction
8U (Ages 7 & 8) Tackle Football K2 110 lbs
10U (Ages 9 & 10) Tackle Football TDJ 125 lbs
12U (Ages 11 & 12) Tackle Football TDY 150 lbs





Greenville County Rec issues a Youth Football Ops Manual that may be helpful to read prior to purchasing equipment (and definitely before start of the season). This manual also includes rules and regulations including weigh-in protocol, playing rules, and operational policies. 


This season we will have three (3) teams (8U, 10U and 13U) in addition to a Competition Team (additional costs will apply to Competition Team). The Cheerleading Fee ($140) includes registration, uniform, bloomers, pom poms, socks and bows. If you are interested in Competition Team, then try-outs will be held in early August. Cheerleaders who make the Competition Team will also be on a regular cheer squad as well.


If you are interested in coaching, please sign up through the registration form. All coaches must submit and pass a background check (https://bib.com/secure-volunteer/Greenville-County-Parks-Recreation-and-Tourism/home) in order to coach. All coaches must also have a current USA Football Youth Certification for Non-Contact & Contact Coaches (https://footballdevelopment.com/youth-certifications/). There are a few easy forms to complete as well, which can be completed closer to the beginning of the season. 


We will post details on the timeline / schedule once Greenville County Rec provides additions guidance. Please see our "About" page for typical timeframes.
