Welcome to SVYFL Tackle Football, home of the Hawks! We are proud to have partnered with Coach Mays and Viera High School last season (2015) as a feeder program. It has been exciting to see the transformation from the blue and gold Lightning to the Green and Gold HAWKS! Viera High School Hawks have served as an incredible inspiration to our youth, and being Hawks offers the youth a chance to feel like they are an integral part of something much bigger. Last season with several former SVYFL players leading the way, the Viera High School Hawks went to the State Championship. Today’s youth have tangible goals right in front of them and being a part of SVYFL affords them an incredible opportunity to reach those goals.
The cost for the Rookie and Pee Wee levels is $100. For early registration, the cost for all other levels is $150 and will increase to $185 on June 1. Registration is currently available online on this website.

All coaches and team moms are subject to a thorough background check. All coaches must participate in the USA Heads Up program which educates our coaches to teach proper tackling techniques. As a result of this program, coaches are also given vital information about concussions and heat stroke and how to best prevent them. All of our USA Heads Up Certified coaches make safety a priority and encourage the players to follow specific guidelines for proper tackling.
Tackle football is a competitive full contact sport. We, as Hawks, are a competitive league, striving to be the best in the county. Our coaches are dedicated to their players, teaching them football and all of the life skills that it has to offer, to the best of their abilities. Summer practices focus on conditioning and skills assessments. Games take place from August through November. Approximately half of the games will be Home games played at Viera Regional Park. The Away games are all in Brevard County. It is common for there to be a sense of “family” amongst team members, parents, siblings and grandparents.
Sign up soon, and don’t forget to sign up for the SVYFL Summer Camp also.
One League, One Team, We are the Hawks!
