About Us

The Southwest Midget Youth Football League was established in 1965 to inspire our youth and to learn and practice the ideals of sportsmanship, fair play, and physical fitness through a common interest in football and cheerleading. Through hard work, dedication, & competition our youth also learn to behave in an exemplary manner and are inspired to learn good habits such as fellowship, & respect for teachers, coaches and other adults. We strive to teach our players the fundamentals of football and our cheerleaders the fundamentals of cheerleading.

Additionally, the SWMFL promotes safety first by having all players in complete certified equipment and strict control over ages and weights. The league will be in accordance with USA Football and National Federation of High School equipment standards.
