About our Football Program
The mission of Semmes Youth Football is to provide a positive introduction to youth football for ALL of our players. The organization aims to provide a comprehensive program, based on the core values of age appropriate coaching and encouragement, in order to develop fundamental football skills.
Beyond football, participation in the program can result in an experience that enriches a child’s life by building character and developing a strong work ethic, while reinforcing positive self-image and sportsmanship. Thru hard work and dedication a child will also grow in social skills including teamwork, cooperation, communication and self-discipline.
The organization is a member of the MYFC (Mobile Youth Football Conference), which is divided into the following divisions – Peanuts (4-6) Pee Wees (7-8), Tiny Mites (9-10), Midgets (11-12 &13 based on weight restrictions). We work hard each season to attract enough players to field a separate team for each age within the divisions.
A goal of the organization is to prepare an athlete’s foundation for the challenges of middle school sports. As a result, and as the level of competition increases through various levels, the amount of playing time will be adjusted. We strive to get kids on the field to provide all of our players with game experience. Player attendance at practice, attitude and skill development are key factors in helping to determine the amount of game experience each player receives.
