Where Tradition began ... excellence continues!
Midwest Youth Football Conference is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to offering a full-contact football program for boys and girls in grades Kindergarten-6th grade living in the North West Illinois Region (NCJC Middle School,Big 12,Big Northern IHSA attendance boundaries)
Our mission is to provide playing opportunities for the youth of the greater North West Illinois Region and to enhance the junior high middle school and high school football programs. Playing our games against the same opponents as the North Central Junior Conference (NCJC), Big 12, & Big Northern IHSA School Districts will build and strengthen relationships and produce a healthy rivalry.
This rivalry, which already exists at higher levels, will instill a sense of pride for the community at a much younger age. Athletes will experience a greater appreciation for and understanding of the surrounding communities and individual organizations involved as a whole. We will promote leadership,sportsmanship,teamwork, and discipline through a variety of activities.
Mimicking the current school districts model will foster important relationships with NCJC, Big 12, and Big Northern IHSA conference schools that will collaborate and work together to build an association of organizations focused on the same mission. To teach our children football in a safe environment and to be community-oriented athletes.
This may seem like a daunting task- But together we can achieve more. It is my sincere hope that organizations will consider joining our Association and grass roots effort to make a difference in the lives of the children in the Northern Illinois Region through organized sports.
From the MYFC Board:
Two years ago, four leagues came together and created the Midwest Youth Football Conference (MYFC). With that came people who cared about the kids in our area. They believed in promoting sportsmanship, fair play, integrity, honor, respect, loyalty, personal courage and dedication to the sport of Football & Cheerleading.
As we grow, our conference is looking to bring other leagues into our organization that have the same beliefs as us. If you know of any other leagues that are interested, please send an e-mail to your round table member so, the MYFC can reach out to them.
Recently, we have had inquiries from other conferences to become one and incorporate their rules with ours. The MYFC is not interested in changing who we are. We have worked together to create a conference where every league has a voice and we are respectful of each other. The MYFC and all our leagues are strong, we will continue to grow and put the best interest of our Football and Cheerleaders first.
