WAYFL Wausau Area Youth Football League


In 2018 WAYFL is changing its program format. A group of high school coaches have asked that WAYFL only provide tackle football for 6th and 7th grade aged players. There is going to be a flag football program offered for kids in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. WAYFL is a tackle football program for youth in fourth (4th) through seventh (7th) grade. The league is available for those youth who reside in the Wausau School District or are enrolled in Newman Catholic Schools. The league consists of three divisions: 4th/5th grade, 6th grade, and 7th grade.
