Our Mission

The mission of GYFA youth football program is to teach and encourage good sportsmanship and fair play through the promotion and support of football for the young people of our community. GYFA is fundamentally committed to the development of character and strives to foster growth and confidence in young people in a structured environment in order to ensure each participant has a positive experience. We provide each volunteer coach, parent and athlete the support and resources necessary to create a safe, fun and positive environment regardless of the participants’ race, gender, religion, nation of origin or ability. Under the guidelines of the GYFA Board, the coaches are to instill in their players the elements of fairness, teamwork, self-control, courtesy and respect for the rules of the game as well as the other participants and officials in the sport.
