2024 Fall Tackle Football and Cheerleading

Eastside Dolphins - 

2024 Tackle Football (8U, 10U & 12U) and Cheerleading registration IS OPEN!

Football

Participants will be placed in a division based on their age on August 31, 2024 (no exceptions). The Football Fee includes registration, game uniform (jersey and helmet decal) and practice jersey with the player's jersey number and name across the back with practice shorts.

Individuals are responsible for providing a white helmet, mouth guard, shoulder pads, game day pants, cleats and practice pants. In general, equipment is a safety investment and will be used for several seasons. We highly recommend purchasing equipment early to avoid the last minute rush when stock is limited. You can check second hand equipment via Facebook Marketplace or Play it Again Sports. We will also aim to hold an equipment swap & sell, but supplies are very limited. 

Every year an updated physical form is required for each player - 2024 Physical Form

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 2024 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. 

Cheerleading

This season we will have three (3) teams (8U, 10U and 12U). The Cheerleading Fee includes registration, uniform, bloomers, pom poms, socks and bows. 

Coaching

If you are interested in coaching, please sign up through the registration form and EDYA will contact you directly if selected. 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/). Please reach out to Britney Sillman for a pre-paid code before completing certification. There are also a few easy forms to complete as well, which can be completed closer to the beginning of the season. 

General

Football conditioning will begin in July. Mandatory weigh-ins will be scheduled. Game schedule will be posted by Greenville County Rec. We will post more details on the timeline / schedule once Greenville County Rec provides additional guidance. Please see our "About" page for typical timeframes.

We are looking forward to the 2024 Fall Season!
