2020 SUDBURY YOUTH TACKLE FOOTBALL

Welcome to all returning and new players to another fun and exciting season with Sudbury Youth Football and Cheer!

Our commitment to player safety is unwavering and now the most popular football helmet worn by professional athletes and top division one athletes is available at the youth level - SYFC is thrilled to report we have refreshed our previous helmets in the 2019 season with the 5-star rated Riddell Speedflex youth helmet for every player that was enrolled in our program. 

The reason why this helmet is so frequently worn by professional athletes and top college players is the technology of the Riddell Speedflex. The Riddell Speedflex uses state-of-the-art protection backed by extensive research, including 2+ million data points of on-field impacts. The Riddell has a 5 Star Rating – The Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings™ ranked in Best Available helmet category.
