Our participation in TCYFL assures us that we are giving our players the highest chance of having a positive experience in an appropriate setting. Because of the size of TCYFL, there is appropriate and equitable  competition for all levels of teams and players.  TCYFL has two Conferences - the BIG 10 and the PAC 10.  The BIG 10 is more competitive and the PAC 10, although also competitive, emphasizes participation.  In order to learn more about TCYFL, visit their website at
