    It was recently announced that 2 youth football leagues in Las Vegas, NV are changing the way youth football is played. Up till now, local leagues have only played their games against other teams in their league. That is now changing, with advent of the first ever City Championship for the first time ever in the Fall of 2009.

    Last year, the city and the local leagues came together and decided it would be great if the upper division of each league would pit their Champion against the champions of the other leagues, thus having an undisputed champion and league in the Las Vegas area. Last year we saw the NYSA Canyon Springs Pioneers hold off the DYFL Palo Verde Panthers by a narrow margin in the 4th Quarter to become the first ever City Champion.......

    This year shows even more promise and excitement with the second year City playoffs and championship coming close. Rumor even has it that UNLV and the administrators of the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl are getting into the action by providing the champions from each league new uniforms and a chance to play the championship at Sam Boyd Stadium.

    Now it has been confirmed that two of the leagues eligible for the City Playoffs have come together for the first time ever and will play inter-league regular season games against each other. DYFL (Desert Youth Football League) and NYFL (Nevada Youth Football League) have come into an agreement that will pit 4 teams from the DYFL's Elite Division against 4 teams from the NYFL's Varsity Division. We are very excited to see how this pans out over the season and from the looks of yesterdays NYFL Jamboree in which the 4 DYFL teams took part in it definately looks like it's going to be a great season for both leagues...
