2024 Season Information


Westonka Youth Football (WYF) is a volunteer organization operated through Westonka Community Education and Services. WYF provides a great opportunity for kids to participate in organized skills development, flag football, and tackle football. We are dedicated to offering young people in grades Kindergarten through Sixth Grade an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of football and the value of teamwork in a safe and fun environment.

In grades 3rd through 4th, the Westonka Youth Football program forms flag football teams and participates in an In-House program. In grades 5th through 6th, the Westonka Youth Football program forms tackle football teams and competes against other area programs/schools, including Westonka, Dassel-Cokato, Delano, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, Maple Lake, Rockford, and Watertown-Mayer in the Wright, Carver, and Hennepin Area (WCHA) Football League.
