Lots of changes this year in our league. All administrators have went through a certification program to become certified Youth Sports Administrators. All of our coaches will be certified Youth Sports Football Coaches as well as concussion and bullying awareness trained.
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.

All parents will be required to attend a mandatory Parent Meeting. We will have 8 separate team meetings at the equipment handout date to be determined. Every parent must be present to sign equipment agreement, parent contract and attend team/board parent meeting. This is a mandatory meeting and no equipment will be given out, nor will any player be able to practice (make up dates will be planned) until these documents are signed and a meeting attended.
You can also find us on Facebook... Just do a search for Fairfield County Youth Football League. We will try to post all the information on this site too. Don’t forget to "Like" us to stay connected and tell all your friends.
Remember, without people like you, we cannot make this possible.
