Hayward Youth Football & Cheer League (HYFCL) 


Our Mission:

The Hayward Lancers Youth Football & Cheer League (HYFCL) was founded in 1999. We are non-profit youth organization serving the Hayward Community and surrounding areas. Our goal is to promote the physical, mental and moral development of children, by providing the means through which the individual child shall receive education and instruction in football and cheer. We hope over the course of the season and throughout their time with the Lancers they will work to develop a strong work ethic, skills to deal with adversity, a sense of fair play, integrity, teamwork, self-value and true sportsmanship. Our goal is to help children develop skill sets that will help them be better young men and women not just on the football field but in life in general.
