UYF Program Statement

United Youth Football League (YFL) established its rules and operational procedures to ensure that every child who wishes to participate, regardless of size, financial means, race, creed or national origin, is included in a safe and fair environment where their best interests and education are put first. YFL Unlimited weight programs groups players by their grade/maturity level. Age based divisions are a proven system schools and private educational institutions have used for years. YFL Age and Weight Program groups players by age and weight levels, a standard used by many National Youth organizations.

Winning is a habit, Success is a choice.

Never let good enough BE enough!
