About Chelsea Youth Football


The Chelsea Youth Football (CYF) mission is to instill in our youth the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the importance of commitment, and the spirit of community. It is our goal to develop strong fundamentals, discipline, good character both on and off the field, and respect for team and community. Instilling the importance of achievement among our young athletes, CYF will strive to better prepare players for the competitive realities of middle school and high school football.
