In 2004, 12 volunteers sat around a big conference table and decided to bring youth football and cheer to the Suntree / Viera area. Plans were drawn up and hundreds of tasks were doled out to those 12 volunteers. Countless hours, days and weeks went by as everything from jerseys, to helmets to cheer uniforms and everything in between were designed and purchased. Our league reached out to local businesses as sponsors to help fund the league as it started to grow.
We practiced in vacant lots, behind schools and any other green (or brown) grass we could find. We played home games at Holy Trinity, Satellite High School, Viera High School and finally our current home at Viera Regional Park.
We went from selling hamburgers and hot dogs on a 99 dollar Home Depot grill……….. to smoking ribs and sometimes salmon on our custom made smoker. And let’s not forget about our trademark Deep Fried Oreos!!!!
We have come so far from 2004 and it’s because of two things ………. Volunteers and DEDICATION. Nothing is possible without the hundreds of volunteers that made all this happen.
SVYFL is DEDICATED to being the Premier Youth Football and Cheer League in the County!!!
Come be a HAWK………… for LIFE!!!!!!!!
