AYF was started because great kids were being told they couldn’t play football – we decided never to let this happen again and created the All – American Division, an age based, unlimited weight division. Although now more common, AYF pioneered the division and brought unlimited weight into the national conscience and changed the game forever.
With our founding goal to be all-inclusive, AYF has continuously created new divisions to be able to give more kids opportunities. All are welcome, regardless of size, skill, athletic ability, or means to pay. No child is turned down because he or she is too large, too small, or inexperienced.
