Indy Youth Sports Football League (IYSFL) was formed in 2010 to create a structured organization that encourages youth and families to participate in organized football, emphasizes the importance of education and teach necessary life skills to inner city youth in the city of Indianapolis. The league is collaboration between the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS), Indy Parks, Tabernacle Recreation League (TAB), Police Athletic League (PAL), Coach Alonzo Watford Inner City Football League (CAW), and the Municipal Gardens DADS Club. IYSFL supports an affordable environment for 7-12 year old tackle and flag football, 12-14 year old (middle school) spring school based tackle football and 7 on 7 football leagues on Saturday nights in the fall.
IYS and IPS have a shared interest and see great value in cultivating a collaborative relationship that includes camps, game management, league facilitation and activities in which both organizations can share resources and reach targeted objectives.
