United Youth Football (www.unitedyfl.com) is a travel competive football program. Our UYFL teams play approximately half of their games on our home field and half of their games against other United Youth Football programs in St. Johns, Clay and Duval Counties. Teams compete against one another, records are kept and the top teams have the opportunity to advance in Regional and National tournament play. All teams must abide by Mandatory Play Requirements (see below) ensuring each player a minimum number of plays in each game.
