Welcome to the West Des Moines 'Little Pro' Youth Football League, Inc. Our goal is to develop well rounded youth who not only learn the fundamentals of football, but also the importance of education, in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound mind, body and character - and having a good time along the way. We practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness. Our program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing days, such as self-discipline, teamwork, leadership and good sportsmanship.

The WDMLPYFL, Inc. is a non-profit organization established to promote the development and maintenance of a supervised, youth-based football program serving the communities of Central Iowa. We endeavor to educate players, parents, coaches and the community concerning the inherent beneficial aspects of a competitive tackle youth football program and the positive impact the principles of hard work, cooperation, playing hard, obeying the rules and treating everyone as an equal, have on the youth of our communities.

We recognize the important, healthy and satisfying role that structured athletic competition provides for the millions of youth who choose to participate in a variety of sports provided by youth leagues and programs across the country on a yearly basis.

Our objective is to provide this invaluable opportunity to the youth of our communities, while functioning under the philosophy that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games will always be secondary to molding and creating an environment conducive to the fundamental and productive development of future citizens.

ATTENTION COACHES: The League will begin the process of identifying qualified coaches for the Fall 2016 Season in early February. Interested individuals are encouraged to complete a Coaches Application, accessible from the Handouts category of the site menu, and forward with a signed Coaches Code of Conduct to the League. Once all applications are received, the Coaches Committee will conduct interviews to establish a pool of eligible and qualified coaching candidates near the end of April. Applications will be accepted from 01 February - 15 April 2016. As a reminder, if you are a returning league coach, please complete and forward a new application for the '16 Season as well. This assists greatly in determining tentative coaching assignments and is required by our insurance carrier.      

PLEASE NOTE: Any individuals that have an interest in coaching in the League will be required to participate in USA Football's "Heads-Up" Certification process which is conducted annually in association with the League's own training curriculum. This training is tentatively scheduled for the months of June and July, 2016.

Coaching Applications and Codes of Conduct can be accessed for downloading by proceeding to the 'HANDOUTS' section of the Site Menu.
