A Friendly reminder, the Vail Vikings is an all volunteer organization.  All Board Members, Coaches, Business Managers, and others are giving their time to support the kids.  While things will not always go as planned, we promise to address issues if they arise, and remedy them to the best interest of the kids. 


Each athlete's family is required to sign up for 4 hours throughout the year, at least 2 of those hours need to be on a Saturday when we have a home game. Be sure to list the team you are a part of on the sign up.   Hours can also be earned by being a spotter, downs marker or chain gang at a game.  The games will only be counted as 1 hour towards your volunteer time regardless of the length of the game.  All 4 hours must be completed to recieve your $75 volunteer check back.

Our Mission

The Vail Vikings Youth Football and Spirit Association will ensure that every child with the desire to participate gets the opportunity to play or cheer, without regard to prior experience or athletic ability. We will instill in our youth the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat, the importance of commitment and the spirit of community.


No individual may enter the practice or playing fields without the proper credentials.  Per TYFSF policy you will be subject to ejection from the facility if you do.  In case of player injury or emergency, please go to the player gate and ask for assistance.


Per TYFSF policy, dual participation in TYFSF programs and any other tackle football, flag football, and cheer outside of TYFSF is prohibited.     

Field Priority

All Cienega  High School programs (football, band, etc.) have priority on the athletic fields.  Vail Vikings Football and Spirit support all their efforts and we will not enter the fields until they have cleared or they give permission.  Please help us by not entering until instructed.  Thank you for understanding. 

A very special thank you to our sponsors. Without them, this would not be possible.

Please support them the same way they have supported us.
