The Douglas Youth Football and Cheer (DYFC) is a charter member of The American Youth Football and Cheer (AYF). We are part of the Southeastern Arizona Youth Football League (SAYFL) which includes Nogales, Benson, Willcox, Sierra Vista, Tucson(Vail) and Bisbee.
The purpose of the DYFC is as follows: To implant firmly into the youths of our communities the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, and courage so that they may become finer, stronger, healthier, and happier youths who may reflect credit upon themselves, their parents and their communities. Our purpose shall be achieved by providing a supervised, safety oriented youth tackle football and cheer program within the Douglas Arizona area.
The general objective of the DYFC is to inspire youths regardless of race, creed or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness. The specific objective of the DYFC is to familiarize youths with the fundamentals of football or cheerleading and to provide an opportunity to participate in a supervised environment where the emphasis is on total participation and maximum safety of everyone. The DYFC aims to keep the football and cheerleading free of adult and parental pressures to win at any cost and to identify and bar from further participation any adult volunteer whose ambition or personal glory-seeking conflicts with the goals and guidelines outlined in our program.
