WHO WE ARE

Scott County Youth Football League is a group of parents who are committed to seeing kids excel through athletics. These parents have displayed a commitment to working with kids in multiple areas, including tackle football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and performance training. We are committed and dedicated to providing each child the best experience they can possibly have in a safe and supervised environment. We believe football builds character, a sense of teamwork, and community pride and spirit. The intent for SCYF League is to provide a safe and fun environment for the young players to learn self-discipline, responsibility, self-esteem and respect for others.

How do we accomplish our mission? SCYFootball is a non-profit organization made up of two entities – SCYFootball League and SCYFootball Boosters. SCYFootball League manages all aspects of football including coaches' training, officials, equipment issue and maintenance, and the day to day management of the league. SCYFootball Boosters' charter is to manage concessions, sponsorships and generate funds for the League. All funds generated by the Boosters purchases equipment reducing registration costs for the League.

We are committed to providing the best equipment and coaching for players in the League. Equipment is inspected by factory representatives before the season. Helmets and other equipment are either refurbished or new helmets and equipment are purchased prior to equipment issue.

Coaches are trained and certified by USA Football and their Heads Up Program. Along with proper equipment, this program is designed to teach players the correct techniques for tackling to greatly reduce the risk of concussions and injuries. Flag football coaches are certified by USA Football's NFL Flag Football program.
