League Philosophy
The Central Illinois Youth Football League was organized to provide the youth of Champaign-Urbana and surrounding communities with an opportunity to play competitive full contact football in a supervised environment. The League’s goal is to familiarize the players with the fundamentals of football and to teach them, that academics and athletics should be a joint, communal effort. We will strive to instill concepts of good sportsmanship and teamwork while building confidence, respect for one’s self and one’s opponent, and discipline. These value propositions are expected from not only the players, but also from the coaches, parents, families and spectators.
