York Little Cougars football forming

A new youth football association, called the York Little Cougars, is starting this fall. The group will be a member of the local Southland Youth Football League and under the United Youth Football League.

The group will have one 12U team this year — for players ages 12 and younger by July 31 — with plans to add more teams in 2014. The team will have a 24-player roster and will play 10 games with some travel and playoff potential.

Teams will run an age-appropriate offensive/defensive version of the York Cougars varsity football team.

A volunteer group has committed to lead and manage the York Little Cougars. The group has partnered with Shock Doctor to provide free mouth guards and USA Football to run the Heads Up Football program, which will educate coaches and ensure that coaches are qualified.

Registration is $125 and includes all equipment except helmets and cleats. For more information on the league and the 12U team designation, visit For more information, email
