Welcome to the Home of TYFA
To provide the youth of each member community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority.
To teach each child the values of fair play, teamwork, and competitiveness,
both on and off the field.
To teach each participant the fundamentals of winning, while equally stressing how to
act when they lose.
The Tennessee Youth Football Alliance, more commonly known as TYFA, was formed in 1997 by several community-based programs within Middle Tennessee. It is unique in that every member community has an equal voice in the administration of the organization. Thus the name "Alliance" instead of league.
TYFA was founded to provide a supervised program of competitive youth football.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, TYFA Board of Commissioners have made the decision to suspend the 2020 football season.
We looked at the TSSAA guidelines that were recently implemented, as well as some communities not being allowed access to their practice and playing fields, and the increasing number of cases throughout Middle Tennessee, and felt this was the safest decision to make for our football players, cheerleaders, parents and fans, the officials and the community administrators.
TYFA will be back in 2021!
We appreciate your continued understanding and support.
If you are a parent looking for a Youth Football and Cheerleading community for your child, please note the following:
TYFA does not register individual children for play or cheer.
TYFA is a league with oversight of these 2 sports within Middle Tennessee and the communities that have chosen to become members.
You can choose one of the communities from our member's list and either click on the name to go directly to their website or go to our TYFA Board page and locate the community's information, including email addresses of their representatives who can answer all your questions regarding registration fees, dates, etc.
Thank you for your interest in TYFA and we hope to see you at the fields this coming season.
