Welcome to the Viking Youth Football Association (VYFA). Since 1970 the Viking Youth Football Association has been committed to providing an outstanding youth football program for Antioch, Lake Villa and Lindenhurst . Any youth, ages 5 through 14 that would attend the following schools: Antioch District 34, Grass Lake District 36, Emmons District 33 and Millburn District 24 can play in the Antioch Viking program, kids outside those districts are permitted to play but must obtain a waiver form. The Viking Program is pleased to be a feeder program for Antioch Community High School. 

The Vikings Youth Football Association is a non-profit organization directed by a Board of Directors and coaches. Our program is designed to teach the basic fundamentals of the game in an atmosphere, which teaches discipline, sportsmanship and having fun. VYFA is a member of the The Chicagoland Youth Football League (TCYFL).

The Viking coaches are required to be certified and attend off-season coaching clinics. With safety as the priority, coaches teach the fundamentals and proper techniques for football; while making sure all players are having a fun time.
 
Not ready for tackle? We also offer a premium fall flag football league that gives a good introduction to football for ages 5-7 that will give them a chance to learn about the game in a fun filled team atmosphere. Flag practices are 2 days per week and a game on the weekend.
