What is LYF
LYF is a full contact football league for children in grades 3rd through 6th. The league is comprised of six teams with an experienced group of seven coaches per team. The league is dedicated to providing the best and safest athletic experience to as many children as possible by fostering family values, sportsmanship, teamwork and respect, while teaching the rules and regulations of football.
There are many changes coming to the league. We are doing many things to make the league even better. All of our Administrators will be certified Volunteer Administrators and all of our coaches will be certified Volunteer Youth Football Coaches through the National Alliance for Youth Sports. We will also be starting a Parents Advisory Group as well as a Coaches Advisory Group. We want this year to better than the last and we think these changes will help us get there.
