South Dakota Junior Football is an instructional participation youth tackle football program for area 2nd through 8th grade students. This organization was established in 1969 by a number of Sioux Falls business leaders and parents who wanted their son’s to better learn and understand the game of football before entering high school. These parents obtained financial support from the Sioux Falls business community through donations and sponsorships to purchase equipment to start this youth football program. Thousands of volunteer hours have gone into organizing and coaching since 1969 to get this program to where it is today. Over 2,700 youth from Sioux Falls and surrounding communities participate annually in the South Dakota Junior Football program. South Dakota Junior Football Inc. is a 501(C)3 IRS designated non-profit corporation and a South Dakota non-profit corporation in good standing.
