Welcome to Drexel Hill Raiders Football
We are a proud member of the Bert Bell Memorial Football Conference
Raiders Football is for all kids ages 5 through 13
Flag Football is 5-6
Tackle football is 7-13
All players will receive a game jersey!
All our coaches are trained and certified for USA Football's Heads Up Program
2023 AGE DIVISIONS:
After thoroughly vetting all options, the Bert Bell Conference has concluded that aligning ages more appropriately has a greater importance than capping weights at each level. We feel that every child should have the opportunity to play Football with their classmates. The new alignment also allows for players to grow at a natural pace without fear of needing to play "up" due to body type. Each level will still offer a Varsity and Junior Varsity structure. Birthdate is based on July 31st
Newly aligned AGE only Divisions:
• Flag Football will remain ages 5 and 6 (first timers)
• 6-7 Divison (Ages: 6 (must have played at least one year of flag and will turn 7 during the season), 7)
• 8/9 Division (Ages: 8 & 9)
• 10/11 Division (Ages: 10 & 11)
• 12/13 Division (Ages: 12 & 13)
No refunds will be given for any sport after the first week of practice.
Payments MUST be made in full before participating.
