About CYFL

Get in the Game!

Every kid dreams of playing football and every kid plays in CYFL!

If your young athlete have dreams of being a Mizzou football hero? Maybe even an NFL superstar? Are team sports new to you? Interested in coaching? Then join the Columbia Youth Football League. We'll introduce you the excitement of football!!

CYFL is Mid-Missouri's premier youth football program located in Columbia, Missouri. Our program has had more than 40 years of excellence! CYFL begins with kindergarten flag football and culminates with our select 7th grade competitive Columbia Colts. Our senior Colts play competitively in the St. Louis Gateway league and prepare the players for high school athletics. 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.
