On behalf of the Lowell Youth Football and Cheer League we would like to express our sincere gratitude towards coach Noel Dean for his years of coaching and service to the great community of Lowell. Coach Dean spent time teaching our young players not only about the game of football but also about building their character. He involved his high school team in many of our youth camps and activities. He cultivated leaders on and off the field. A tradition we intend to carry on from our little arrows on up. Thank you, Coach Dean, for the lessons you taught us, the traditions you created, for your dedication to our football program, your passion for helping others and for making so many wonderful memories for our awesome town of Lowell!

Go Red Arrows!

Our Mission

Lowell Youth Football League is a recreational program that teaches sportsmanship, respect, honesty, dedication, responsibility, being a team player, and the fundamentals of football, flag football, and cheerleading.   Competitiveness is not emphasized in the perspective of winning and losing.  There are no official standings kept and no championships awarded.  Rules are designed to provide a safe environment for the majority of players.  The primary purpose of the Lowell youth football program is that every child will play in every quarter of a game as long as the requirements set forth by this league are met.  Examples:  attending and participating in all practices, maintaining acceptable academic standards, and showing respect to fellow teammates and coaches. 

LYFL is a member of the West Michigan Youth Football League.  The WMYFL is an organization established to promote the development and maintenance of a supervised, youth-based football program serving the following communities of Western/Mid Michigan: Lowell, Kentwood, Northview, Caledonia, East Grand Rapids and Rockford.
