As the 2013 Football and Cheerleading registration approaches quickly, the Thumb Area Football and Cheerleading League is proud to announce the introduction of Online Registration. To apply online will help families and coaches pre-register before they come to the assigned registration dates in their chosen community This process will help to save the parents time and paperwork. There will also be payment options that will help families so they can pay via credit card (Mastercard & Visa) at time of online registration or on their communities registration day. Parents may also choose the pay later option by choosing the Pay by Check option so they can pay when they come in to be fitted properly for the football and cheerleading uniforms.
As TAFL continues to grow it is vital that we continue to update and improve our management systems for an effective, efficient youth football and cheerleading program. Each of our communities will be taking part in the Online Registration process in 2013 through their individual community websites. You may also choose to hit the community at the left side of this screen to direct you to your individual communities online registration and information.
WELCOME to the 2013 Football and Cheerleading Season!!
Safety and the education of safety will be our first priority! A close second will be our continued education on the fundamentals of football for all involved. The education will come from many state and national bodies for our internal continuous improvement activities. In addition, we will increase our focus on the proper sportsmanship for all players, coaches and volunteers. Other areas of improvement include but not limited to: keeping costs down, scholarship programs, by-law/rule clarification, charitable events, on the field behavior and continuous coaching improvement.
This year we will add Player Safety Coaches to assist in the nationwide awareness of concussion prevention. These positions will help in our mission for safety education for players, coaches, parents and volunteers.
We continue to look for volunteers to assist in our success!
Thank you for all of your support!
As in the past years our TAFL board would like to thank all of our sponsors, parents, friends, relatives, school systems and news journals for all of their support.
Our pride grows each year as we watch our young football players and cheerleaders grow on and off the field.
We look forward to the continued support.

Heads Up Football is USA Football's comprehensive approach for a better, safer game with an emphasis on player safety.
The Heads Up Football program was created by USA Football with support from the NFL.
The program focues on four key areas:
- Concussion Awareness
- Proper Equipment Fitting
- Coaching Education
- Heads Up Tackling which takes the head out of the line of contact.
All of this combined will help our TAFL Football Players be more confident, efficient tacklers while helping to improve safety.
