About the Raiders 

We provide an opportunity for boys and girls in both tackle football and cheerleading.  Our organization is run by volunteers who not only teach the game, but also demonstrate respect and sportsmanship.  The Raiders have been around for over 40 years!

We are a full contact travel football organization, playing throughout Nassau County, sponsoring teams from 5 to 11 years old.   Our teams are all single age groups so all kids on our teams are the same age with lower weight limits that other leagues,  providing a better experience for your son.

We are fully insured, we purchase new equipment each year and our coaches are required to take certification courses annually.    

We welcome players from the towns of East Rockaway, Lynbrook, Oceanside, Malverne, Rockville Center, Island Park, Hewlett, Woodmere and Valley Stream.  

Thanks for your support!
