Seymour Area Youth Football League

The Seymour Area Youth Football League (SAYFL) is a new elementary tackle football league this year based in Seymour (no traveling). The league is open to all area kids entering 3rd-6th grade. There will be a 3rd/4th grade division and a 5th/6th grade division. A “combine” will be held to choose even teams based on size and talent level. K-2nd grade flag football will still be organized through the high school program and is not affiliated with SAYFL.

Our mission is to teach fundamentals (including USA Football’s Heads Up Tackling) along with leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect. Our vision is to bring our community together in a safe atmosphere and strive to become better neighbors, coaches, parents, fans, and supporters of our local football programs. USA Football’s Heads Up Tackling is a national certification program that each coach (head and assistants for each team) is required to complete to learn proper tackling fundamentals to reduce the likelihood of concussions. We have a Players’ Safety Coach that completes training by USA Football, will train all the league’s coaches, and be present during game days to ensure safety techniques are being followed.

We have some upcoming registration dates listed below. The fee is $130/child and that includes all equipment except cleats. This fee is due before the first practice which is tentatively scheduled for the week of August 25th (coaches will finalize their own schedules for each team). The child will also be properly sized for equipment at that time. Sign up sheets will be available but can also be found on the website. We are currently looking for more coaches. Coaches are required to complete an application, have a background check, and participate in a coaches’ clinic put on by Seymour’s Head Varsity Football Coach to learn the rule book, play book, and proper coaching techniques. Coaches’ applications will be available at the sign ups and can be found on the website as well.
