The purpose of the Northern Guilford Youth Football League is to provide the Youth of Northern, regardless of race, gender, religion or creed, the opportunity to participate in a controlled athletic completion and to instill: good sportsmanship, value of fair play and good conduct. Also, to bring together the youth through their common interest, promote tolerance and to encourage adults to behave in an exemplary manner.
The Northern Guilford Youth Football League (NGYFL) was founded in 2010 by Ron Lenard with a group of football parents and enthusiasts that saw a need and an opportunity to bring an affordable, quality tackle football program to our youth in the Northern Area. The founders wanted to create a fun experience for kids that allowed both young boys and girls to learn critical football skills and engage in a well-rounded fitness development program. The program is open to all kids in K-7th grade levels who are no older than 12 years of age.
In just six years, NGYFL has risen to critical acclaim and started to turn heads in Guilford County as well as other leagues in the Northern area. The success of this league is attributed to sound non-profit operations, consistent fundraising efforts, effective collaboration with volunteer parents, coaches and board members, commitment to the NGYFL Mission Statement and a consistent desire to improve.Values:
