WHY CHOOSE THE FAIRFIELD YOUTH FOOTBALL AND CHEER GIANTS?
We are GRADE BASED. Your child will compete with, and against, children in their own grade. The same children they will continue to play with throughout their football career.
We are Fairfield’s Youth Football League. The FYF Giants continue to grow because we are not only teaching football and cheerleading. We are teaching valuable lessons about life, sportsmanship, and unity on and off the field.
We play within FAIRFIELD COUNTY. We only compete against towns in Fairfield County. This allows kids to compete locally without taking up a whole weekend of travel! We are excited to be a member of the Fairfield County Football League. Our competition includes Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Stamford, Westport and Wilton.
Our league starts with FLAG. Our flag program has had unprecedented growth with over 800 kids competing in fall and spring in 2019. Divisions are based on grade. Kindergarten, 1st/2nd (Junior Division), 3rd/4th (Middie Division), 5th/6th (Senior Division) and a 7th/8th grade 7 vs. 7 passing league. We are especially excited of a new division we added in 2019 called Modified Flag. Modified Flag allows kids to participate in playing flag football against the other towns in our league while wearing full pads. It is available for 3rd/4th graders and a great way to learn how to transition to playing in full pads without the full contact of tackle.
Our Cheer program is one of the top in the state. Participants get to learn both sideline and competition style Cheer and have had success throughout the state, region and individuals, nationally. Kids can participate from K-8th in Cheer.
ALL of our COACHES in FYF as well as our League are USA Football Heads Up CERTIFIED. The Fairfield County Football League is the ONLY youth league in the State of Connecticut that has passed mandatory certifications.
Think of the FUTURE. Your child will compete against the same opponents that he or she will compete against in high school in the FCIAC. This gives Giants players a major advantage at the high school level compared to other sports.
