TVYFL was established in 1990 with five league teams and by the time the first league games started we had eight teams enthusiastically ready to compete. By the year 2000 we had increased our teams to fourteen and by 2010 we had expanded to twenty-five teams solid! We are growing at a strong and steady pace and we are excited with the progress and development of this league. If your organization is looking for a substantial league to help you develop your teams, coaches and members, TVYFL invites you to meet with our Board of Directors and League Representatives at our monthy meeting. Check out our "About Us" page to read more of who we are. The young people that we coach today are the athletes and leaders of tomorrow and we believe that the lessons we teach them today will have positive and profound effect on their lives in the near future and for the rest of their lives.
"All adults involved in a youth sport must understand that it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."
We place an emphasis on sportsmanship, responsibility, and most of all participation in a team sport and event. We require all teams to play all children on their team a minimum of 10 plays per game. Our goal is to feed the local high school's with game experienced players.
The family of a Pop Warner youth football player, paralyzed making a tackle during a 2011 game, filed suit in California this week alleging he was taught an unsafe "head-first" technique by his coaches and that the Pop Warner organization and others failed to ensure the coaches complied with rules banning such tackling.
The best coaches, MAKE THE SPORT FUN FOR THE ATHLETES -
It doesn't matter what level you coach. It doesn't matter whether a national title is at stake. Sports are just games and games are meant to be fun! One of your most important jobs as a coach is to find ways to integrate this fun into what you do over the course of the season. Good coaches are HONEST AND CONDUCT THEMSELVES WITH INTEGRITY. Great coaches are GREAT LIFE TEACHERS - A good coach understands that what he is teaching goes far beyond the X's & O's of the field. The very best coaches GET THEIR ATHLETES TO BELIEVE in themselves. Good coaches inspire their players.
