Lyman Youth Football
Posted Jun 12, 2012

Established in 1990, the Lyman Youth Association is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to teaching and developing children in youth sports.  Currently the Lyman Youth Association offers youth full contact football and cheerleading for children ages 5-12.  We are located in Gulfport Mississippi and play our home games at Bruce Ladner Park located on Highway 53 in Harrison County. 

Everyone in Lyman is a "Lyman Cowboy", every team in our club is named the "Cowboys", a tradition that we have continued. Each team has distinctive uniform colors that set them apart. 

The Lyman Cowboys are part of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Youth Football League, a coastwide league made up of 10 communities.  Our season usually consists of 8 regular season games, playoffs, and a Superbowl for each age group.  We begin practice in August.  The season begins September 16, 2017 and the Superbowl is scheduled for November 18, 2017.

The Lyman program is League Affiliated with USA Football, the youth partner of the NFL.  All of our coaches are required to submit to background checks.  Lyman's coaches also are required to complete USA Football's coaching certication courses. 

Last season we had 220 football players and 45 cheerleaders particpate in our program.  We have seen consistent growth over the past three seasons.  We hope to grow again this season and would love to welcome you to the Lyman Family.
