Tackle Football

Issaquah Youth Football (IYF) provides a wholesome, healthy activity for children using the football field as a classroom to instill discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play. To be eligible to play, your child must be of the proper GEJFA age/weight, and must live within the Issaquah High School boundary.

Flag Football

If you have a child that will be in 1st or 2nd grade this Fall, consider starting them out in our Flag Football program.  Our teams will wear the Issaquah purple and gold, practice and play on the same fields as our tackle players, and compete with other GEJFA Clubs (e.g. Skyline, Inglemoor, Bothell, etc.).


The mission of IYF Cheer is to provide elementary and middle school age youth living within the Issaquah High School boundary  the opportunity for cheerleading in our community, while building community and team spirit with enthusiasm.
