The Arapahoe Youth League (AYL) FOOTBALL LEAGUE is the premier youth competitive football league in the metro Denver area. In 2014, we supported over 200 community based teams. The AYL is organized by Member Clubs that manage different territories in the areas that we support. We start teams at the 6 year old age level and end at the 13/14 (8th grade) age group. Our Community Based leagues (NFC, AFC, CFC) represent our premier product.
NFC - This represents the most experienced players that show the highest level of competition in the AYL
AFC - The AFC represents the largest number of players in our league. It is for more experienced players that are striving to reach NFC level of play, but not quite there yet.
CFC - This is our entry level of play and is intended for only those at an early level of exerience (1 to 2 years) in competitive, tackle football.
For more than 45 years, the AYL has produced an outstanding atmosphere for competitive tackle football in the Denver Metro Area. It is a league that is focused on teaching sportsmanship and life long lessons of the game with respect to physical education. It is primarily a community based league that supports youth playing with friends and families in closer proximity of where they live. It is the AYL Football Board's goal to manage a physical education program that is fun and promotes a life long love of the game of football!
