How to Join LFA Football
Lou Fusz Athletic (LFA) has something for everyone. LFA is a non-profit 501(C)3 youth sports organization helping young athletes (K-12) learn the fundamentals of the best team game in sports through hard work, effort and passion. The Skills Acquisition Program & Blue Helmet Academy is a revolutionary football development program designed to coach players level-by-level so that they learn all aspects of the game and gain appreciation for all positions on the field. We also offer seasonal competitive Flag Football Teams and Tackle Football Teams as well as several camps & training programs for all ages.
Lou Fusz Football is the standard bearer for how youth football will be played in the United States. Available for athletes ages 8 to 14, each athlete that plays for a LFA team will receive excellent coaching but must be willing to work hard, on and off the field. Tackle football is a cumulation of development, skills and drills, flag and flex wrapped into one. The best part of tackle is any young athlete can continue in the previously mentioned sessions to take their tackle game to the next level. 8U–14U Tackle football teams.

Indoor and outdoor flag football will be available to athletes from ages five (5) to twelve (12) year-round. For the younger ages, this is a supplement for Rookie Level 2 and SAP- Novice. The athletes will continue to work on their skills and development in a fun, secure setting while also adding the competitive aspect to the game. For more advanced players, flag football will work as a stepping stone to Flex Football from SAP-Juniors and Varsity. Spring Flag Football or Summer Flag Football teams available.
Flex Football™ is the pro-inspired 9v9 game format that utilizes the NFL’s practice philosophy of high-tempo, low-impact play. Flex provides superior football development and player progression in a non-tackle environment, allowing one to experience the thrill of football without all of the risks from repetitive impact. Flex allows 3rd graders to 8th grade to make the transition to tackle football at their own pace.
