Tackle football starts mid July with player assessments.  July is an opportunity for coaches to assess players' skills and strengths, and in some cases, introduce players to different positions.

Rosters are finalized by the beginning of August, just before the start of the regular NCAFA Season. In some cases, coaches may be required to release players to stay within the maximum number of players on a roster.

The regular season runs from mid-August until mid-October.  Playoffs typically run until the first or second weekend of Novermber.  


Players are required to supply their own cleats (no metal spikes), mouth guard, and personal water bottle.

Raiders will provide players with a helmet, shoulder pads, jerseys, and integrated tackle pants, which must be returned at the end of the season.

Practice and game schedules once finalized will be posted here.
