SYFL Preparing For Another Season
The program has been around for decades in the form of a 7th and 8th grade team, but has evolved within the past 10 years allowing younger kids to now improve their skills as they progress towards high school.
The league now includes over 100 participants each year amongst 3 age groups. Along with the 7th and 8th grade team, there is a division for 5th and 6th grade as well as 3rd and 4th.
Commissioner of the SYFL Rob Phillips has said that the most important thing is getting them to learn the fundamentals and also letting them realize that they can have a good time and not get hurt.
High school coach Kevin Greene is also involved with the program, working with the coaches to form a successful system of young players going into the high school level.
The SYFL will kick off their regular season at home against Newton on August 16.
