Northwest Wolves Football is excited to introduce you to the new Northwest Youth Football program! We have been accepted into the Iowa Developmental Youth Football League and are very excited to partner with such a successful and respected organization. This is a wonderful opportunity to bring a true developmental K-7* football program to our community.
The IDYFL's vision is to grow the game of football through: age appropriate games, a focus upon skill development, and fun/exciting game formats. Our league places a big emphasis on experience/development and future participation over standings and tournaments. Our addition to the league will be a perfect opportunity for that vision to grow in the metro area.
The Football Development Model is designed to help coaches teach athletes based on their age, the skill they are learning and game type. Our approach assists with the development of young athletes and allows them to learn the game and related skills in a progression that best suits them.
This model is also designed to be a smarter and safer way to play and teach the game. By establishing different levels of contact and game types at each game category, parents can identify the right entry point for their athlete. For coaches, the model helps USA Football further advance standards in coach education and certification.
Below we have a few questions for you to fill out in order to best meet the needs of our community. We will use the information to create a mailing list, gauge interest in our program, and to begin purchasing equipment for all our future Wolves. This is not a signup for the season. Signup information will be sent at a future date to the email addresses you provide.
