Independent Youth Football League
Welcome to The Independent Youth Football League's (IYFL) web site, the premier football & cheerleading league in Central Arkansas.
The IYFL is the oldest 11-man tackle football program in Central Arkansas. The league is maintained by volunteer coaches, parents, cheerleader sponsors, and businesses throughout Little Rock, North Little Rock, and Jacksonville dedicated to the enrichment and fulfillment of young men and women through athletic participation.
There are over 2,000 youth participating in the IYFL annually. This year, we've added 1 new team to the IYFL -- the North Pulaski Ducks. We would like to think that by their involvement in learning the sport of football and the art of cheerleading, the children will strive to become good citizens and future leaders in our community. The IYFL exists for children, not so adults can inflate their egos with unethical sporting practices and opinions.
The IYFL's main goal is to build good, strong, upstanding youth, who are fit both physically and mentally. Through football and cheerleading, we give these young people a fun and wholesome alternative to drugs, alcohol, gang involvement, and crime.
League commissionership rotates each year to a different team's head administrator. If you are unsure who that person is, please feel free to contact the Organization Head Administrator, head coach or sponsor of the team which your child will be participating.
The IYFL promotes fairness and sportsmanship at every level of participation and encourages parents, fans, coaches and players themselves to report any and all instances in which those characteristics are not practiced.
