Suffern Youth Football and Cheer Joins Taconic Youth Football & Cheerleading for the 2022 Season and Beyond

Hello Suffern Youth Football and Cheer Community, 


    Suffern Youth Football and Cheer is proud to announce that our football and cheer programs have found a new home and will play with Taconic Youth Football & Cheerleading for the 2022 season and beyond.  Each level of football, including our 2021 Rockland County Champion Jr. Pee Wee team, along with each level of cheer will experience many benefits from this transition.  Over the next few weeks, our board of directors will outline many of the details associated with this change.  We are sure there will be many questions around the specifics of this transition, and we assure you that we will be here to answer every one of those questions to the best of our ability.  This change is one that will create more opportunities for our athletes to play, grow and compete at all levels for both football and cheer.  This change, ultimately, will enable the growth and success of Suffern Youth Football and Cheer for decades to come.  


Many of you may be asking, who is Taconic Youth Football and Cheerleading?  The TYFC was formed in February, 2012 and consists of 10 member organizations located in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, & Rockland counties in New York state.
