Marist Youth Football is the only youth sports association in the greater Eugene/Springfield area solely dedicated to the children attending local private Catholic and Christian schools. Our goal is to instill a passion and love for the game of football that will carry these youngsters through middle school, high school, and maybe beyond. Tackle Football is a great team sport that offers life lessons in teamwork, hard work, strategy, and perseverance. We try hard to field competitive teams but not at the expense of fairness, good sportsmanship or our Christian values. We don’t take lightly our charge of making each player a better player, teammate, and role model for their peers. We look forward to a successful season both on and off the field. Go Saints and Go Spartans! WE ARE ONE!

"I have been asked a lot of questions regarding the time commitment and safety of tackle football. Let me start by saying that my son James has played since kindergarten and loved every minute of it. I always felt his safety was the highest priority to the coaching staff. My younger son plays as well. Practices begin second or third week of August, four to five nights a week for conditioning and safety, then taper off as school starts. Younger teams have games on Sundays and older teams may have a midweek game. It is somewhat time consuming but the reward is well worth it. Our teams become like family and I am always sad to see the season end."
