Welcome To The Southwest Gridiron Football Conference
Hello and welcome to the Southwest Gridiron Football Conference! We here at Infinity Youth Sports are excited to see you take your beginning steps into the world of football by joining New Mexico's ONLY club football league. The Southwest Gridiron Football Conference (SWGF) is dedicated to providing a safe environment for youth to play football in, while learning the values of sportsmanship, teamwork and fundamentals. Infinity Youth Sports, in partnership with United Youth Football League (UYFL), is dedicated to helping student athletes in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork, and physical well-being by espousing the virtues of the 5 core values: Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Sportsmanship, and Leadership. Infinity Youth Sports will also stress the importance of family, education, and teamwork.
The Southwest Gridiron Football Conference is composed of 5 different divisions - Bandits, Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors. Each division focuses on fundamentals and making sure players are ready for the next level. The Bandits division was created for the youngest participants within the Southwest Gridiron Football Conference who were eager to play a non competitive game of football which focuses on and allows children to learn the basic fundamentals of football without feeling undue pressure to win or over-excel at a young age before their mental capacity can fully handle the expectation. Our other divisions, however, are designed for older players of a higher skill level who desire to play in competitive games with the opportunity to go to the IYS Super Bowl. This structure allows players to focus on more advanced techniques while consistently reinforcing the fundamentals of the sport. The Southwest Gridiron Football Conference divisions are age-based divisions only. We do not have any divisions based on weight. WHY? We do not believe in any weight based programs for one simple reason: There are not any weight restrictions at the high school level, college level or professional level. By promoting age-only divisions and programs, we feel our athletes have a competitive edge on the next level up on the competition.
Infinity Youth Sports' fair play policy states that each child is required to play at least 50% of their game. This policy ensures that all children are able to compete in games and have fun while being taught the fundamentals of the sport that are needed to be successful at the next level. We are the only youth sports league in New Mexico that requires this fair play policy whereas unfortunately,many other places have only a 6 play minimum per game or a minimum play for at least 1 quarter.
We hope that you are excited to take the first step in learning how to be successful in the ever-changing and competitive sport of football. While we at Infinity Youth Sports will always be striving to make sure our athletes have the most competitive, advanced and safe conditions possible, we hope you have what it takes to prove yourself in the Southwest Gridiron Football Conference.
