“TEACHING KIDS TO LOVE THE GAME......WHILE CREATING BETTER STUDENT ATHLETES” WWW.UNITEDYFL.COM
UYFL WAS FOUNDED IN 2011 ON THE PRINCIPLES OF UNITY AND INDEPENDENCE, BY A GROUP OF LIKE MINDED COACHES WITH THE GOAL OF PROVIDING THE FIRST NATIONAL ORGANIZATION GUIDED COMPLETELY BY THE MEMBERSHIP, WITHOUT INTRUSION, AND WITH THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD ALWAYS COMING FIRST. THIS CONCEPT OF A CO-OP OF INDEPENDENTS HAS PROVEN TO BE THE REASON WE ARE THE FASTEST GROWING YOUTH FOOTBALL AND CHEER LEAGUE IN THE COUNTRY. AS CONFERENCES JOIN, THEIR LEADERSHIP IS PLACED ON THE NATIONAL STAFF (OUR BOARD OF GOVERNORS) IT IS THIS GROUP THAT VOTES ON ALL ISSUES RELATING TO LEAGUE AND THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS, WITH EACH CONFERENCE REGARDLESS OF SIZE BEING ABLE TO VOICE ONE VOTE. UYFL BELIEVES THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT STRUCTURE IS THAT OF YOUR CONFERENCE AND MEMBER ASSOCIATIONS, ALL DECISIONS SHOULD BE MADE ON WHAT IS BEST FOR YOUR CHILDREN, NOT NATIONALS! UYFL WILL ENFORCE YOUR RULES AND BOUNDARIES, SUPPORT AND BACKUP ALL CONFERENCE DECISIONS, AND NEVER GET INVOLVED IN YOUR PRIVATE BUSSINESS. UYFL, WITH THIS TYPE OF STRUCTURE, ALONG WITH YOUR HELP AND MEMBER SUPPORT WILL ESTABLISH UNITED YOUTH FOOTBALL AND CHEERLEADING AS THE PREMIRE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE IN THE COUNTRY, WHERE OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY WILL BE TO MENTOR AND DEVELOP BETTER YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN, AND PLACE THEM ON THE PATH TO COLLEGE, WHERE EARNING A DEGREE WILL BECOME THE STANDARD MEASURE OF TRUE SUCCESS, NOT WINS, LOSSES, OR A NATIONAL TITLE.
