The Weld County Football League (WCFL) was formed in March 1995. Local recreation directors, directors of youth football clubs, volunteers, and parents wanted to create a program for participants to learn the skills, techniques, and rules in the game of tackle football in an organized setting. By competing against other communities of similar size and portion, a sense of fairness is present, therefore creating a program that is fun for participants.
Where applicable and within the changes and additions listed herein, the official rules will be the rules of the National Federation of State High School Athletic Association, refereed to in the rules and regulations as ‘official high school rules.’
All coaches and assistant coaches are mainly volunteer parents who put in countless hours of time to be able to offer a program like tackle football. Games are played on Saturdays at home and away locations with the possibility of a weekday night game scheduled. Referees are used to officiate the scheduled games that are played on a reduced size field. Many rules have been adapted or altered to promote safety and fairness. Different rules apply according to the age level of the players to give a more realistic experience of the game. Please remember that sportsmanship is a virtue that must be present in youth sports. Remember that this program is for the players and they should always be having fun!
