Marshall County Youth Football: Welcome

Marshall County Youth Football League

Welcome to the MCYFL!

A brief history:

The league was founded in 1973 by a group of local gentlemen that were looking to bring the sport of football to the youth of Lewisburg and Marshall County in Tennessee.

Our Mission:

1. To teach fundamental football and cheerleading skills and techniques.

2. To provide fun, enjoyment, and game competition with adult leadership.

3. To teach to win with pride and lose with dignity.

4. To build minds and bodies through good clean sportsmanship and vigorous exercise.

5. To teach each child the importance of teamwork.

6. To promote a safety first program by using strict controls on age, equipment, and proper behavior of participating coaches, referees, and spectators.

 A reminder from your children:

- I'M A KID

-IT'S A GAME

-MY COACH IS A VOLUNTEER

-THE OFFICIALS ARE HUMAN

-NO COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS WILL BE HANDED OUT TODAY.

THANK YOU AND HAVE FUN!

2014 Jamboree



We would like to thank everyone that came out and celebrated with us to kick off our 2014 season this past Saturday. We would also like to THANK EVERYONE that came out for being so understanding about our admission prices. As was stated here before, we did charge a little more than normal due to this being a fundraiser to help pay or the new helmets that were purchased this season. To be totally up front and honest, we purchased over 100 new helmets at a cost of over $8,000. That was a big decision, but the safety of the kids is the most important thing as we see it, so again, THANK YOU for understanding. We know there was some concern about the heat this past Saturday, as there should be. We were concerned with it as well. The league does have a heat index meter and the rule is, once the heat index reaches 105 degrees, we have to shut it down and take a break. If the temperature does not come back down, then we have to cancel until later in the day, or reschedule for a different date. We were lucky for most of the day with some cloud cover and a good breeze. At one point we did have to take a break, but thankfully, we were able to come back and finish the day. We hope that the rest of the season is cooler than it was for jamboree. There were some hiccups and mis-communications that have occured, but hopefully we can get it smoothed out and have a successful and exciting season!

There were many great games played and it looks like it is going to be an exciting season. All of the divisions looked extremely talented with some great competition forthcoming. We can't wait to see how the season is going to shake out!

2014 Fundraising Car Washes

On Saturday August 16th, the MCYFL held a league wide car wash at three seperate locations. This turned out to be a fairly successful day raising over $1,000 to help pay for our new helmets that we purchased this season. With all three divisions putting in four hours each, that isn't too bad of a day. First and foremost, we would like to thank our host locations for allowing us to come out to their facilities, use their water, and give us the supplies needed to make our day a success. Those locations are NAPA, O'Reilley, and Auto Zone. Secondly, we would like to thank Crystal Rolof, our fundraising director, for getting us these locations to be able to hold our fundraisers. Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank the players, cheerleaders, coaches, parents, grandparents, and anyone else that came out to actually do the washing. I hope that everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves. We in the MCYFL enjoy having a little fun competition. With all three car washes going on the same day, and basically the same time, it didn't start out that way, but I think it did end up that way. The Pee Wee's were at O'reilley, and a parent posted a picture of a line of cars waiting to be washed with the caption "Juniors and Seniors can you beat this? Go Pee Wees!". In the end, the Junior Division did raise the most money. On a personal level, I love to see competition. Competition breeds success and that is what we want to see out of our youth, SUCCESS! Again, THANK YOU to all that participated and lets get ready for next Saturday as we kick off our season with our jamboree!
