2019 Junior Raiders Season (Football)

Built on the beliefs that every child should be able to participate, enrollment costs will be kept low, and that fundamentals will be properly taught to children and coaches by the high school staff; this program was founded in 2013 and has the overwhelming support of the community.

Our focus in the format of our league and program is to have a later starting date and also bring down the registration costs, while opening our arms to all children that would like to participate. The great thing about this program is that it is our program. We do not answer to any other association. If we want to see something changed or added, we can make the decision as a program and league. This fall we will be beginning our 6th season of Colonie Junior Raiders Football. We look forward to continued success and the continued support from the community and the High School football program.

We feel that offering the best brand of youth football is a must and we have taken every avenue to make sure that happens. We have purchased brand new state of the art equipment for our children, to ensure their safety and enjoyment of the sport. We play our games at West Albany Memorial Field (Pocket Park). Our home field is a community field that offers our program the opportunity to be centrally located and it gives our kids the chance to play on a tremendous grass field with lights. Our coaches are coached by professional educators. The school football program’s coaches will be directing the youth coaches and players in our program. They will help them with day to day planning of practices, skills, drills, techniques and offer the youth coaches support through the use of video editing software (HUDL).We want to promote the game of football to all children within our community and the South Colonie School District.

Football is a game for many ages and all different sizes. Football teaches many life lessons that children can benefit from. Our goal is to keep all children actively engaged in the sport of football and give them many opportunities to play the sport throughout the year and throughout their life. We encourage our children to play more than one sport throughout the year. We believe that having children involved in a variety of activities, prepares them for the future.  Thank you for your interest in the Colonie Junior Raiders and welcome to the family.
