Youth (1st-4th)

Union Raiders Starters and Midgets Program  

Starters - 1st & 2nd Grades

Midgets/Midget Youth - 3rd & 4th Grades

The Union Raider Football Organization offers an instructional football program that is dedicated to teaching the youth of our community the fundamentals and proper techniques of tackle football.  As a feeder program to Ryle High School, our emphasis is on developing physical fitness, sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership skills in a positive and safe environment that will benefit them through their years as a varsity player.  We strive to provide opportunities for ALL participants to develop individual skills and abilities while being a contributing member of a team.  It is important to the Union Raider Football Organization to provide a way for our athletes to build lasting friendships, great memories, and have fun.


The Union Raiders 1st - 6th Grade teams play in the Northern Kentucky Youth Football League (NKYFL).  We play teams in the Northern Kentucky area and our Home field is the varsity Football field at Ryle. 

Our goal at this level is to not only teach football but to also teach life skills to our players. We will start to teach the players basic football fundamentals but also have them learn the Ryle terminology. The more we can teach them at this level the easier it will be to move up in our system and get ready for High School Football.
