Register for youth football

Vashon Pirate Youth Football unveils a new look this season with sharp game jerseys that match those of the high school football team. Each youth football player will receive one of these jerseys to wear during the season and keep afterwards.

Registration is open for the fall 2008 season. Youth football welcomes boys and girls who will be entering third to sixth grades in fall 2008. Those who register now can save a spot on the youth football entry in the Strawberry Festival parade, headed by unofficial mayor candidate Paul Wallrof.

Registration forms have been distributed at Chautauqua Elementary School, Carpe Diem Primary School, The Harbor School and Family Link.

For those who need a registration form or have questions about the program, please call Youth Football Board President Paul Wallrof at 567-4073.
