A warm welcome to MLTnews sponsor, MTYAA Football and Cheer.
MTYAA provides youth ages 6-14 the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of both tackle football and cheer leading in a safe and fun-filled environment.
MTYAA Football and Cheer is a community-based program that practices and plays games locally. The coaches and families are from the local community and players primarily attend School in the Edmonds School District. MTYAA has been serving the MLT, Brier, Edmonds and Lynnwood communities since 1972. MTYAA works closely with Mountlake Terrace High School athletics to prepare kids and help them transition seamlessly into high school and become a student athlete.
Starting this year, MTYAA and the entire Northwest Junior Football League (NJFL) is working with Children’s Hospital and the University of Washington. Children’s Hospital is funding a study and the University of Washington is providing certified athletics trainers at every NJFL game this season, as well as baseline and follow-up testing for athletes. Details on the study can be found here.
MTYAA and every NJFL franchise is a member of USA Football, requiring all coaches to be certified and pass a strict background check.
Football registrations are still open. You can register online at MTYAA Jr Football and Cheer.
