The McAdory Youth Football and Cheer Association (MYFCA) is a proud member of the United Youth Football of Alabama (UYFA) league. 2022 was a another banner year for MYFCA having an incredible season with another championship win! We are preparing for nothing less in the 2023 season.
McAdory youth football is a youth based athletic program teaching football and cheerleading to children ages 4 to 12 years old. Working together for our kids is rewarding to everyone. Being involved with this program as a parent is one great way to share in your child's youth. It is our goal to build our children's dreams by promoting the ideals of good sportsmanship, good character, team spirit, and honesty all while having FUN along the way.
Our Vision and Purpose
This program is a competitive program, and includes all desiring participants who compete for positions and playing time. Playing time will depend on a persons experience, ability, skills, understanding of the game, needs of the team, and game situation. The position and playing time are determined by the 5 to 6 coaches on each team. Based on the above criteria McAdory Youth Football park stresses full participation but also realizing that equal playing time is NOT possible. We do not have a "MUST PLAY" rule. Although the league has no "must play" rule, the league stresses participation for all. All kids in our park will have an equal opportunity to practice and develop skills and fundamentals, however, there is no way to ensure that all will play equally. It is McAdory's vested interest to protect each child when it comes to safety while on the field.
