(WTNH) -- American Youth Football welcomes kids and of all sizes and encourages every child to get off the couch and onto the field.
American Youth Football (AYF) is an independent, non-profit corporation that provides support services, training, scholarships, grants, community programs and tournaments to over one million members in 50 states and several countries worldwide. AYF is committed to giving back, and since its inception in 1996, has donated over $15 million dollars in grants and athletic products to communities that support youth football. AYF was the first national organization to offer all-inclusive football divisions, enabling every child an opportunity to play.
AYF was the first and is still the only national youth football organization that welcomes kids of all sizes. As the driving force of unlimited weight football, AYF has been a long time and staunch supporter in the fight against childhood obesity.
Not only does the All-American division allow boys of all sizes to play, but the grade based structure levels the playing field (without the concern of older/lighters) and allows boys to play together year after year giving them the opportunity to develop as a team and better learn the game, making AYF programs todays most successful high school feeder programs.
