MVYFA Mission Statement

The goal of the Mounds View Youth Football Association is to provide every player a positive youth football experience. 

We strive to find and provide the best leagues, facilities, equipment, and coaches we can so that each player may enjoy success on the field.  Our goal is to provide to all players the safest, most educational, competitive, and fun environment we can.  We will make certain that every player is coached so that he has the opportunity to learn the skills necesssary to be a more complete player, and the importance of filling whatever role necessary to help his team be successful.

Our volunteer organization will work before, during, and after the season in an attempt to ensure that each and every participating player learns the importance of teamwork, the value of self discipline, the merit of sportsmanship, and the respect for the game, his teammates, his opponents, and authority figures such as parents, coaches, and officials.

We hope that each player will finish the season feeling that he improved as a player, a person, and a teammate.  That he had fun on the field, and was an important part of his team.  Most importantly, that he wants to return to the field for the following season.
