The Acadian Football League is for children in grade three through grade eight. The League provides a safe environment for children to develop fundamental football skills that enable them to become experienced players who are ready to compete at the high school and college level. Many people aren’t aware that the most critical stage of development for athletes is at the youth level. The AFL is proud to fulfill this role for youth football players in the greater Mount Desert Island region.
As well as dedicated young players, along the sidelines of the AFL are also great volunteer coaches, assistant coaches, team moms and dads, concession workers, and parents who drive their children to practice and games, prepare late suppers, and give their kids emotional support.
Please join us in supporting the Acadian Football League. Your involvement enables us to continue to teach basic football skills and fundamentals, instill good sportsmanship and promote the life-long benefits of physical fitness to youth in the greater Mount Desert Island area. We encourage your participation in our community, and invite you to come out and enjoy a football game!
