Games will be starting the weekend of Aug 23rd instead of Sept 8th. Games will not be scheduled Labor day weekend
Last game will be Mid October instead of Late October

Why did we make this change?

Wildcat Youth Football

Verona, WI 53593
The Wildcat Youth Football program is an organization run by parent volunteers which is open to all children entering 4-8 grades within the Verona Area School District. The immediate goals of our program are to: (I) provide each player with the skills and fundamentals to play the game of football. (II) to assure, to as great an extent as possible, a safe environment, both physically and emotionally, in which each player is encouraged to grow at his/her own rate.(III) To teach and model sportsmanship and respect coaches, officials, opponents and each other, as the players learn to enjoy and respect the game. *************************************************************
