APYFL is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving over 500 Boys and Girls living in the Prince William County Community by offering tackle football, flag football, and cheerleading. We provide children with a safe environment to play sports, emphasizing skill development, sportsmanship, discipline and fun. All of APYFL's coaches and administrators are volunteers.
We are a member of the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL) which serves the Northern Virginia region, with 23 member clubs located in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William counties and Alexandria city. The purpose of the FCYFL is to provide participating youth with a healthful, enjoyable leisure time activity, and to foster in them the qualities of sportsmanship, team play, and integrity.For the 2013 season, the FCYFL had over 300 teams, 1,200 coaches, and 7,000 players playing a game that everyone loves!
Football is considered one of the most demanding and rewarding of all little league sports. Therefore, it requires a huge commitment to the program from both player and parent.
