  • Each community sets up and administers each of their teams.  Each Community Director is responsible for the teams that play under its registration
  • The West Michigan Youth Football League has an equal Board of Directors that consists of representatives from each community.  These directors meet to discus the further advancement of the league.  Each community MUST provide a representative to attend all necessary meetings.  Each community is assigned a task for each football season.  If a community fails to attend the necessary meetings or fails to complete their tasks they will risk being eliminated from the league.
