Building Champions for Today and Tomorrow

Welcome to Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) Football for Tackle and Flag.  Our programs have a tradition of building champions and players of character while having fun!


Tackle Football is considered one of the most demanding and rewarding of all little league sports.  Therefore, it requires a huge commitment to the program.  The success of our program is driven by the level of commitment and support delivered by our coaches, players, parents, volunteers, and community.

The Flag portion of SYA Football is a fast pace, fun oriented program that teaches the fundamentals of Football in a atmosphere of learning for both boys and girls.  

The Football program is designed to provide fundamental instruction in the game of football, in addition to providing for the physical, mental, and emotional development of each child.  This is accomplished through emphasis on sportsmanship, team play, self-discipline, maximum effort, integrity and maximum participation.


Our Tackle Football program participates in the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL) along with approximately 24 other individual youth clubs that field teams in the various weight classes from Anklebiter through 155 pounds and approximately 7000 participants.  Our program is open to kids ages from 7 to 16 years old.  Teams are divided up by a combination of age, weight and experience.

Our Flag program offered in the Spring season participates with the NFL Flag sponsored program.
