Winning Isn't Everything, It's Just What We Do!!

 

 

 

Proverbs 22:6

"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

The Tyler Lions Youth Sports Association was founded on March 8, 2001 by Stan Traylor. The first board consisted of Stan Traylor, Ruby Skief, Ben King, Michael Williams, & Jackie Neal. We offer youth football and cheerleading for kids in the 5 to 12 age range. We currently have 150 kids in our programs. We are based in Tyler, TX. We stress academics, sportsmanship, & teamwork for our participants.
