SOUTHWEST GRIDIRON FOOTBALL 

 

 

UYFL was created to establish a youth organization based on the goals of creating better men and women, as well as providing an athletic outlet through football and cheer, with the goal of putting all of our participants on the road to achieving a college education.UYFL will stress the importance of family, education, and teamwork. UYFL will assist parents and educators in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork, and physical well-being by espousing the virtues of the 5 core values: Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Sportsmanship, and Leadership. The UYFL program is designed to develop superior students and citizens, as well as athletes.

 

Infinity Youth Sports, in partnership with United Youth Football League (UYFL), presents the Southwest Gridiron Football Conference of New Mexico. SWGF is comprised of two leagues: National and American. The Southwest Gridiron Football Conference is dedicated to providing a safe environment for youth to play football in, while learning the values of sportsmanship, teamwork and fundamentals. All divisions are eligible for tournaments across the nation at any UYFL Tournament.***




 

NATIONAL LEAGUE

The National League of the Southwest Gridiron Conference was created for the youngest participants of IYS in order to play in a non-competitive game. This structure allows children to learn the basic fundamentals of football without feeling undue pressure to win or over-excel at a young age before their mental capacity can fully handle the expectation.  Bandits is the only division in the National League that is a weighted division.  Any player that exceeds the weight limit will not be able to play on game day and/or must move up in division. Bandits are not allowed to play up without league approval. ID Cards are required by UYFL and Infinty Youth Sports for all tackle football players. Please see the ID tab for more information. See IYS for full details.
