DIFL Board of Directors thank parents and coaches for thoughtful input

The DIFL Board of Directors extend a thank you to all the parents who took time out of their busy lives on the evening of March 8 to listen to our vision of how we can improve the DIFL for the benefit of our children’s well-being. Our main focus is to increase safety and the quality of football education by utilizing professional resources in our community. We look forward to the many great benefits offered by our affiliated high schools’ coaching staffs, including coaching clinics, access to certifications, safety training, fields and equipment, and other important resources, all the while maintaining an independent youth football league. The Board greatly appreciates the input provided by so many parents and coaches. We will use that information to make the best decisions in the interest of all DIFL stakeholders. And at the end of the day, it’s all about investing in the kids and their football experience and overall wellness. Please remain engaged with us as the league moves forward. And as always, if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Questions and misinformation surround proposed high school affiliation plan

There are a lot of questions and misinformation surrounding the current proposal by DIFL’s Board of Directors that would affiliate DIFL teams in Dubuque with Dubuque high schools. This is a positive plan that would allow Dubuque teams to share resources, including coach mentoring, safety training, fields and equipment, and more, with Dubuque high schools. If you have concerns, please be sure to attend the meeting with parents and coaches to discuss the idea of high school affiliation that is scheduled on Tuesday, March 8, 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM, in the Hempstead cafeteria.
