Mid Michigan Youth Football League's philosophy is to promote family, strengthen our community, teach good sportsmanship, build character, promote academic success, and enhance the physical and mental abilities of our youth. The nature of MMYFL is instruction in the fundamentals of football and cheerleading. We are continuously striving to provide an exceptional experience to all that participate. The purpose of the MMYFL is to operate a non profit youth football league and to promote good sportsmanship to all players, coaches, parents, and fans.

Skill – Attitude – Discipline

We want our youth to demonstrate character at the highest level. After they have demonstrated exploits of greatness on the field, we want to continue to read about our kids, the accomplishments and contributions they are making to society. We want our kids to become adults who don’t forget the sacrifices made for their success. We want our kids to be great role models, great parents and great citizens.

Mid Michigan Youth Football League will not turn away any kid who wants to participate in football or cheerleading regardless of ability to pay. Football teaches life lessons while getting youth in shape and away from the video games. Kids should play outdoors with their neighbors. Mid Michigan Youth Football League helps to develop relationships on and off the field.

Cheer, Dance and Step

All teams have competitive cheerleading as part of their overall program. Girls and boys interested in cheerleading are eligible to apply. Cheer squads are formed in the same age divisions as the football squads. MMYFL hosts at the end of every season a cheer competition for squads.
