Fairfield Wildcats Youth Football is a member of Fairfield County Football League. The FCFL is a youth football league comprised of 8 Member Organizations (Aspetuck, Darien, Fairfield, New Canaan, Ridgefield, Weston, Westport and Wilton). The FCFL was formed from the Gateway Football League in 2001. The founding Member Organizations were Darien, New Canaan, Westport and Wilton. The Fairfield Wildcats joined the FCFL in 2005 as the Fifth Member Organization. In 2010 we welcomed The Ridgefield Raiders Youth Football Program and in 2012 Weston Youth Football joined our League. The Aspetuck (Easton/Redding) Youth Football joined in 2016.
The league was formed to create a football program focusing on getting as many kids playing football as possible, developing fundamental football skills in a progressive manner, requiring evenly split teams, safety, fairness and healthy competition rather than winning at all costs and building strong teams by keeping less talented players off the field. Using this formula the FCFL has grown enormously over the past 7 years to its present size of over 2,400 kids playing on 65 tackle football teams. This model has also provided all the Towns with opportunities to experience success and Championship teams in the various grade levels over that time period. Additionally, the proximity of the towns provides the competition of a travel program without the tremendous pressure placed on families when traveling long distances is required. Our size also makes it possible for us to accommodate the scheduling needs of the towns involved.
USA Football's Heads Up Program Was Adopted by Fairfield Wildcats Youth Football in 2013. For complete details, click here.
