There are a few youth football leagues in the DSM area - the league I'm referring to here is the West Des Moines â€˜Lil Pro Youth Football League (WDMLYPFL). I learned last night the league had a larger influx of new players this year and they're short on coaches. To learn more about the league if youâ€™re interested in coaching or have a 3rd-7th grade child that would like to play, visit www.wdmlpyfl.com. Practices start August 18th this year. The only formal requirement to coach is to attend one football seminar a year - this is to satisfy the league's insurance policy that all coaches have had some form of annual education. The two local options remaining this year are the Central College Clinic in Pella on June 14th and the IFCA Clinic in Ames on July 26-27th. Please contact the WDMLPYFL or myself if interested and they or I can assist you in the process of applying and completing your education.
