We hope you and your families are remaining safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our main concern during this time is, as always, the health and safety of our Pioneer community. We understand that in times of distress there are many obstacles we are facing. The Pioneers will be extending the early bird registration discount until April 15th, 2020. Per River Valley Youth Tackle Football League rules, once a tackle football team reaches 44 players, there will be a wait list started at that level. 

When registering, please remember to update your child's current weight. Jersey's are ordered in April, and to ensure your child gets the proper size, we need his updated weight.

Congratulations to Pioneer legendary QB Hayden MIkesell who will be playing football for the Western Michigan Broncos next fall. During his youth playing days Hayden was a Pioneer Award Winner having won 39 games in a row and back to back Championships.  Hayden also led the 2015 Pioneer team that was our first to win a National Youth Football Championship in Daytona FL defeating the Wichita KS Aztecs 24-13.  Hayden led the Marist RedHawks this past season to the 8A semis where they lost to eventual Champion LWE HS.  We wish Hayden the best of luck next season!
