Welcome to Boulder Youth Football, home of the Boulder Bears youth tackle football club!

This football program takes pride on providing a high-quality program that not only teaches players football fundamentals but also helps build confidence, character, and growth of the individual and team as a whole. This is a dynamic, volunteer-run community with a dedicated and enthusiastic group of coaches that take the safety and development of your children very seriously. Overall, the goal is to create lifelong enthusiasts of the great game of football. 

The program is offering teams in the 7, 8 (7/8s are a combined team), 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13-year-old age levels. Players must reside in Boulder (includes unincorporated) or in a neighboring community without a youth tackle program (Nederland, Lyons, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Louisville, Superior). If you are unsure whether your child is eligible to play with the Boulder Bears, please and we will help you determine which program(s) your child can participate in.
