Vestal Youth Football League
“YOU can learn more about character on the 2 yard line than anywhere else in life." - Paul Dietzel / LSU
The Vestal Youth Football League and Cheer was originally founded in 1971 and provides full contact - collision youth football and cheer experiences for participants ages 7 to 12. The VYFL also offers flag football for student athletes ages 4.5 to 6 years olds. In 2016, the VYFL joined the Souther Tier Youth Football League (STYFL).
Effective for the 2018 season the football league will consist of four teams: one flag, one 7-8, one 9-10, and one 11-12. All football practices are held at Arnold Park in Vestal, starting the first week of August. Practices are three days per week and typically go from 6 to 8 pm in the summer and transition to 5:30 to 7:30 for September and 5:00 to 7:00 for October. Continuing since the 2016 season, all home football games are held at Dick Hoover Stadium on Sundays.
Cheer will consist of two teams: the first age group 6-8 and the second group 9-12. Practices are typically held at Arnold Park twice per week starting the first week of August and teams perform during football games and at competitions.
Each season is capped with a end of year party for participants and their families to enjoy.
