WYANDOTTE INDIANS MISSION STATEMENT:
The mission of the Wyandotte Indians Junior Football League is to provide a safe, fun learning environment for the youth of our community. We strive to create an opportunity for kids to work together as a team toward common goals. We emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork and respect for authority figures (Board Members, Coaches and Game Officials). While we are not a farm system for high school football programs, we recognize the impact we may have on those programs. Our focus is on developing good life skills through the sports of football and cheerleading.
The purpose of this league is to provide a democratic means for administrating a junior football program from 3rd through 8th grade levels, the building of character, citizenship and a spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship among its teams and players, both on the field and off the field and to provide the youth an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game of football.
