Aid in their personal growth and development through football

About Us

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Although we are excited about the recent media exposure and involvement by major organizations such as the National Football League, we will never falter in our commitment to maintain the original mission of our organization: “Keep this league fun for the children!”  It’s simple, our philosophy can be summed up in five words: “IT IS ABOUT THE CHILDREN.”   As long as we are keeping smiles on the faces of our athletes while having them still maintain their competitive spirits, we have done our job.  Participating coaches will be educated to conform to this philosophy, or they will not be part of the program.  Although we are all competitors, it is imperative that these youngsters learn that it this experience is not about wins and losses. It’s about about learning to live with wins and losses. Our children must learn that defeat is not a measure of failure.  It is a part of life that can can be learned from to create future successes.

 

Founder of the Long Island Youth Indoor Football League, George Sheld, is currently a candidate for the Youth Coaches Hall of Fame for his involvement in many youth programs in varying capacities from coach, administrator, and a member of the board of directors.  Upon his high school graduation, he received a full scholarship to play baseball at the premier Eckerd College in Florida until a devastating injury forced his return to New York.  After that almost career ending injury, Mr. Sheld beat the odds and returned to baseball as the pitcher for St. John’s University under the supervision of coach Joe Russo.  Mr. Scheld now owns a successful private investigations business and is currently authoring a novel on the problems with politics in youth sports.  His coaching philosophy has long been simple, “Be prepared and be honest.”  He lives by the creed of his mentor, legendary college baseball coach from The University of Miami, Ron Frazier.

 

“I view everyone I meet, whether it be a player, ref, opposing coach, parent or administrator, as if I was going to enter a life long relationship with them even if I will never see them again. This keeps me focused and true and never lets me deviate from my steadfast philosophy, It is always about the kids.”
