    Gulf Coast Youth Football Association, Inc. was founded in 2009 under the leadership of Mr. Ty Steele. Since that time,  GCYFA has strived to provide youth a place to learn, grow and enjoy the sports of football and cheer.  Our mission is to develop the youth of our community through lessons of sportsmanship, leadership, and commitment.  Our volunteers are parents, community leaders and fans who have a desire to create a positive impact in the lives of youth. As of 2018,  GCYFA is an affiliate member of world renown American Youth Football (and Cheer) Conference. AYF/C  has become the largest youth football & cheer organization. AYF/C provides our youth with an opportunity to play on a regional and national level. In addition to athletic recognition, participants are recognized for excellence in and outside the classroom.
