About the NYFL...
The focus being on community, the NYFL has the support of local school districts and/or governments and plays at some of the best facilities with five of the eight franchises playing on Field Turf. This is the same playing surface that the Detroit Lions and University of Michigan use. All facilities have concessions and proper amenities.
The league is divided into two divisions: Freshman and Junior Varsity. The Freshman athletes are 8 and 9 years old. The Junior Varsity athletes are 10 and 11 years old. Ages are based on September 1 of the current year. Please see rules for weight limits.

The season usually consists of 8 games that are played on a Saturday or Sunday.  There are no practices or games over the Labor Day weekend.  When possible, night games are added to increase playing experience and atmosphere. 

The NYFL is not a "centralized" league and each team conducts their own registration.  For more information about each team, click "NYFL Team Links" on the left information bar.

Academic All-American Program
It has become a NYFL tradition to recognize academic achievement.  At halftime of each divisional Super Bowl, student-athletes are recognized from each franchise. The recognition is to remind everyone that success on the field is secondary to what is achieved in the classroom. Each student had a B- average or better and in 2012 over one thousand Cheerleaders and Football players qualified.
