Football and Cheer Season

SMYFA is designed for the improvement and development of the capabilities of individuals, to encourage team athletic endeavors in both Football and Cheer to promote the physical, mental and moral development of youths 6 through 14 years of age, without regard to race, creed, color or religion.  This shall be accomplished by providing the means through which the individual player shall receive education and instruction in football, to develop a sense of fair play, honest and fair competition and true sportsmanship." Our players aren't just members of a team, they are members of our community.  At each game, you get a chance to contribute to these efforts. We believe that sportsmanship doesn't stop at the edge of the field.  Our season closes with a Superbowl and Cheerfest championship between our league teams.
