Important Team Roster Information
You spoke and we are listening! We have received a lot of feedback requesting two teams in each age division and that one of those teams practice in northern Botetourt. Our goal is to have two tackle football teams in each age division – one in the southern part (Blue Ridge, Daleville, Troutville, Cloverdale) and another in the northern part (Buchanan, Eagle Rock, and Fincastle). In order to do that, we need to have more tackle football athletes register in northern Botetourt.
We need at least 40 athletes to register in each age division to create two teams. Our goal is to create teams based on geography and schedule practice within those areas. We will be updating the website periodically to let the public know how close we are to our goal.
Please help us with football recruitment by sharing this information with your community. We will also be partnering with James River High School to help with recruitment efforts and events.
We want to create teams based on geography and schedule practice within those areas. We realize that in recent years Northern BOCO families had to travel to Daleville to practice due to not enough athletes in Northern BOCO signing up to play. We understand this is not sustainable or easy for our families. This is where we need your help. Please help us with football recruitment by sharing this information with your community.
IF WE DON’T GET ENOUGH PLAYERS REGISTERED TO HAVE 2 TEAMS, we will combine registrations into one team like we did in 2022. If this happens, the max number of players we can have on one team is 31. If we don’t reach our goal of having two different teams, then those that registered after the first 31 players will receive a refund (registrations will be verified based on the time stamp of the registration meaning the first 31 players that register will get to play). That being said, it’s very important to REGISTER EARLY so your child is guaranteed to play! If families from northern BOCO decide they don’t want to play for a combined team, then we will offer a full refund.
And…. Just because you live in Southern BOCO doesn’t mean you can’t register your child to play in Northern BOCO. You as a parent get to choose if your child will be a Cav or a Knight!

We won’t let a child miss out on recreational sports because of finances. Financial aid is available to qualifying athletes. Contact the Botetourt County Parks & Recreation Office for more information.
