Welcome to the Southfield-Lathrup Falcons
Youth Football and Cheerleader Association


The Southfield-Lathrup Falcons would like to welcome you to our Association.  We are very proud to be part of the Southeast Michigan Youth Athletic League.  The Southfield-Lathrup Falcons is a non-profit organization run solely through the work of parent volunteers.  Our Association participants range from ages 5 - 14 years old.  Our home games are played at Southfield-Lathrup High School on Saturdays.  Please make an effort to get involved for the benefit of both your child and yourself-we promise it will be a rewarding experience for both of you!





The Southfield Lathrup Falcons organization was established in 1955, and became a member of the Jack E. Lowther Little Football League. The League was established through an endowment contributed by the widow of Jack E. Lowther who wanted to continue the work of Mr. Lowther who perished in a motor vehicle accident.
The 1980’s and 90’s witnessed the development of the Falcons as a “powerhouse” within the league emerging as “champions” year after year!

In 1994, the Falcons joined the Suburban Youth Football Conference. The Falcons have been the recipients of the Suburban Youth Football President’s Award for ten consecutive years and has won it more times than any other team.

In 2005 the Falcons will be joining the Southeast Michigan Pop Warner Football League. By representing a national organization the Falcons hope to broaden it’s influence as it will now compete against teams on a Regional and National level.

The Falcons have decide in 2012 to join the Southeast Michigan Youth Athletic League which is a member of the world largest youth football organization, the American Youth Football League (AYF).

The Falcons of 2015 will continue to be strong as an organization and our youth continue to demonstrate athletic and academic excellence in high schools and colleges across the state and country. Falcon’s football players and cheerleaders standards are high, goals remain focused, and education is equally emphasized. This combination as reflected by our high achievements creates a successful organization.


It is the mission of the Southfield-Lathrup Falcons Organization to introduce and encourage the game of football and cheerleading to area youths while teaching them life skills that include sportsmanship, character growth, principles of hard work and teamwork.


The Southfield-Lathrup Falcons Organization vision is to provide all of its youth players with an educational and athletic foundation that will enable them to be productive on the field as well as in their chosen careers. We motivate a desire for life-long learning and support our parents, coaching staff, volunteers, and the Board of Directors.
