About Us
The Northern Vermont Youth Football League (NVYFL) is an association of 17 teams in the northern half of Vermont. Team geography ranges from the Barre area in the south of the region to areas from Burlington to North Country west to east. Each team represents a specific geographic area, and is operated independently. The Northern Vermont Youth Football League is the governing body for league operations. Each team has representation on the board of the NVYFL, and the board works together to develop schedule, rules and manage operations of the league.

The NVYFL season begins in mid-August, and ends with the championship game on the first weekend in November. Each team has varying practice schedules, and interested players/parents are encouraged to contact the team in their area for more details regarding signups, practices, etc.

There are three levels of play in the NVYFL. The lowest level is a Flag football program for children in grades 1-4 (note that not all teams have flag programs, but we add more each year!). Tackle football begins in an instructional program for grades 5-6, and a more competitive Tackle program for grades 7-8 represents the highest level. Typically, practices are 3-5 days a week, held after school, and games are held on Saturday mornings. Flag games, and additional scrimmages may occur during the week as well.

Androscoggin Valley Gladiators
