5th and 6th Grade 3A schools Division
Posted Jan 5, 2019

What teams will play in this division?
      Any school that is not considered to be a 4A school by the state of Iowa.  For example our current member schools Benton, Vinton, CPU and Marion.

Why are you combining grade levels?
     Football is about community, camaraderie, and athletic achievement. Smaller schools were not getting to fully take advantage of these while combining with other districts, or not participating at all. We also listened to what parents wanted in our end of the year survey. An overwhelming percentage of our families asked for this new division.

Will the rules be the same?
   
 A majority of our rules will remain the same, including playing time, substituions, practice times, etc. A few rules may be 'tweaked' to allow for safety or smooth game play. For a complete set up rules please see 5/6th Small School Rules

Can we play games closer to home?
     
While MYFA has excellent facilities and provide on site trainers, officals, and concessions; we would work with teams to create a more of a community game setting as long as safety requirements of the league are met.

Will this still be safe for child?
     Absolutley!!!!  
Safety is considered in every decision we make at MYFA. With the level of equipment (best in the midwest for youth football), rules to ensure safe/fair play, coaches traning, facilities, and athletic trainers we believe we have the safesty youth football league in americal!!!
