About CYFL

CYFL is Mid-Missouri's premier youth football program located in Columbia, Missouri. We have celebrated more than 40 years of excellence. Our sports program begins with kindergarten flag football and culminates with 7th grade tackle football. Many of our players have grown into high school stars and collegiate athletes, even Missouri Tigers football players. Our volunteers and coaches share a passion for kids, fun and football.

Our program is designed to introduce families to the sport of football in a fun and instructive environment. While we teach the kids how to win, winning is secondary to the fun of playing organized team sports. We recognize that there is greatness in each of our student athletes and emphasize individual growth in a team atmosphere. Besides teaching football fundamentals, our focus is to simply promote athletic and academic excellence in all of our players. In addition to creating a lifelong love of sports, our goal is to create outstanding citizens and future leaders in school, sports and our community.

CYFL is a 100% volunteer organization. We need parents to lend their time and talents in order to make the League a continued success!
