Apache Junction Black & Gold Youth Football League

About BGYFL

The philosophy of BGYFL is to give all eligible individuals the opportunity to participate in the American tradition of football and cheerleading, while enjoying a fun, safe and productive environment that enables children to learn and apply the principles of teamwork, discipline, and dedication. We will teach the fundamentals of the game and enhance the physical condition of our youth. We will promote sportsmanship and dignity during the excitement of victory, and also in the face of defeat. We will build character and self-esteem by teaching discipline, self-control, honesty and respect for oneself as well as teammates, coaches, family and community.

We are sustained by the efforts of volunteers who display an extraordinary amount of commitment and hard work, ensuring that our league is a positive influence in the lives of our children. We also strive to provide a service to our community by providing a healthy outlet for children, opportunities for the community to gather together, and endless hours of entertainment. 

What to Expect
Beginning near the end of July, through early November, your child will practice approximately 50 times and play in a minimum of 8 games (not including playoff games and practice times). This equates to around 100+ hours of football or cheering, not including travel time and other organizational functions. Football and cheering require a lot of hard work and discipline, and your child’s coach will expect 100 percent participation always! Each family that wishes to participate in this program must understand and accept this commitment.

Remember, ALL COACHES and TEAM PARENTS are VOLUNTEERS and deserve the respect of not only the football players and cheerleaders, but their parents, too.These volunteers put in many hours of their own time to ensure that your child has a positive and safe experience. Therefore, the Black & Gold Youth Football Board asks that all participants and their parents and/or guardians adhere to all of the rules that are set forth.
