The league has worked hard in the offseason to bring you the best youth football experience in the area, including:

  • Scheduling: The WHYFL will expand the joint schedule with the Farmington Mudhogs to include the Mighty Mite, Pee Wee, and Pony Divisions for the 2014 season.
  • Player Safety: The WHYFL has elected to implement USA Football’s Heads Up Football program, and require that all coaches complete the certification prior to the start of the season. This includes designation of a Player Safety Coach.
  • Player Eligibility: The WHYFL has added an “older/lighter” provision:
    • 10 year olds (as of September 1, 2014) who weigh less than 75 pounds will have the option of playing in the Mighty Mite division or the Pee Wee division.
    • 12 year olds (as of September 1, 2014) who weigh less than 90 pounds will have the option of playing in the Pee Wee division or the Pony division.
  • Training: All WHYFL coaches will be required to attend a mandatory coaching clinic (run by head coaches of the three West Hartford high schools) to cover fundamentals regarding proper skills instruction and practice planning. This is in addition to required background checks, First Aid/CPR training, and CDC “Heads Up” Concussion Awareness training.
  • Cheerleading - New for 2014, the WHYFL will partner with Greater Hartford Cheer to offer cheerleading for children ages 5-14. Register online today!

Register online today, and we hope to see you at Sterling Field soon.
