Swampscott Youth Football is part of the Cape Ann Youth Football League. We are members of USA Football, and all of our coaches are USA Football certified. SYF provides top-of-the-line equipment that is tested and certified every year. The primary focus is to create a fun environment and introduce the fundamentals of football. 

The League is based on competitive A, B, and C team levels. These levels are eligible for The CAYFL Super Bowl. D Team is a great opportunity to learn the fundamentals of game play.

The season begins on the second Monday of August, and typically involves 2 weeks of “training camp” practices, which are 4 times/week. During the season, practices are at the coaches’ discretion and typically are scheduled 4 times/week for all teams. We play a 9 game schedule. Games are typically played on Sunday with an occasional Saturday game. Our program is open to Swampscott and Nahant residents entering 2nd grade through 8th grade in the fall.

The goal is to provide a positive learning experience, focused on sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, safety, and fun!
