Celebrating our 32nd year, the Winfield Youth Football and Cheer program has provided local youth with a positive, caring environment through athletics from which thousands of children have benefited. In the quiet farmlands of southern Carroll County, in 1989 a small group of men and women created an organization to bring football and cheerleading to the Winfield community surrounding South Carroll High School. What began as 4 to 5 teams of between 12 and 15 players each, has grown today into a program that annually fields football players and cheerleaders spread out among a variety of teams and age levels. One tenet that has remained constant is the dedication to provide children with a safe and and positive place to learn about sports, about teamwork and most importantly - about themselves. Above all, the parents and children that have been the backbone of our program through the years have helped to create a real sense of community in and around Mayeski Park, home of the Winfield Cavaliers. The alumni of Winfield Youth Football and Cheer have gone on to excel at the high school and college level, not only in sports but more importantly in life.
We offer tackle and flag football and cheer teams for children aged 4 to 14. Registration usually begins in late January for the fall season. The fall season typically begins the last week of July and runs through October to mid-November for teams that earn play-off spots or make it to our annual league Super Bowl for tackle football and cheer. The flag season usually runs sometime in August through October.
