We are the original youth football program in Turlock.

Year after year we have maintained a strong following and have a long history of success serving the Turlock community. In 2015 we changed our names from the 49ers and Vikings to the Pride and Bulldogs.

Turlock Youth Football is a pure non-profit registered with the state of California. All board members and coaching staff positions are strictly volunteers and are not compensated in any way. The registration fee that you pay goes towards the children. We have 4 levels of play with age and weight limits, Varsity, Junior Varsity (JV), Peewee, and Rookie, 6-14 years old on Aug 1st (1st – 8th grade).

Even though there is not an official youth program for either high school in Turlock, we have sent many elite athletes to both high schools. Turlock Youth Football has some of the best quality youth coaches around, between the head coaches and coaching staff at all levels, there are over 100 years of combined youth experience.

Over our rich history, TYF has won many of the NFC and AFC Championship and Super Bowl games, at all levels of play, many times with undefeated seasons. The program’s alumni have moved on to achieve success in high school, college, and professional programs across the nation. ALL board members and coaching staff are Live Scanned by the Dept. of Justice, and all have a certificate with the NFHS in concussion management. Many coaches also attend continued education classes to improve their coaching skills on a regular basis.

The TYF Board and our coaching staff are committed to focusing on teaching the proper fundamentals of football, teamwork, good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, unity, integrity, pride, and respect in our community. We believe if the game is taught well, and players adhere to the core values of effort, teamwork, and continuous improvement that winning takes care of itself. We take pride in our organization, our teammates, and our community, and strive to represent them all with class and dignity.
