FALL 2021

  • Tackle FOOTBALL | Grades 6-8 

    With a new approach for 2021, ORYA has transitioned to a grade 6-8 approach. This travel-based program will participate in the Northeast Jr. High Football League. Our team will play in 2 games each weekend. One at the JV level and one at the Varsity level allowing our players the opportunity to play in games appropriate to their level. Not all players will play in both games. ORYA football is for any player (boy or girl) interested in giving football a try or hoping to develop to play as a ClipperCat in high school. As always, safety is top priority of our program and coaches so heads up tackling approach is utilized and a gradual approach to contact in practices is emphasized.

    The specific practice times will be announced once our coaching staff is solidified and field availability is known.

This in-house program will will offer one practice per week and a game day on Sundays. Playing 5v5 will offer plenty of touches for players and lots of time on the field.

Why is there a difference between Durham, Lee & Madbury rates?
When ORYA receives funding from the communities we serve, it directly subsidizes the participation of
our in-house, recreational programs for members of that specific community. The differences between
each residency-rate is a direct reflection of the expected or actual funding from each community in the
budgeted year. If one community has a lower player fee, it means that community has chosen to reduce
your participation fee in youth, recreational athletic programs. Travel-based programs are not
subsidized by town funding.


    The Oyster River Youth Association provides inclusive, fair, diverse and developmentally appropriate recreational programs to the youth of Durham, Lee and Madbury, NH. ORYA meets the changing needs of the children and families in our community for sports and recreational activities by acquiring and maintaining facilities, promoting volunteerism and seeking collaborative and strategic partnerships.
