WYFL 2020 Season Canceled.Update to 2020 Football Season- Canceled
After waiting and postponing the registration and season, the Community Youth Football League that consists of Washington, Greenville, Williamston, Chocowinity, Belhaven, and Bear Grass have met multiple times and after many discussions, all parties involved have agreed to cancel the 2020 season. Out of the group, Greenville and Washington were the only two leagues that had enough potential players to field teams. The leagues waited until the final hour to make this decision and with the continued Phase 2 protocol by the Governor, the season has been canceled.

With that being said, WYFL still has plans to hold some camps for the kids throughout the fall. We will be setting up the camps and dates soon.

We want to Thank each one of you that has engaged and showed support to the Washington Youth Football League!

Please stay in touch via Facebook for future communications. We hope to have the dates for the camps that will be held at Kugler Field within the next 2 weeks. Stay safe and let's start working and planning for the 2021 season.
