History of the NIFC:
The NIFC was created in 2006 in efforts to bring a more positive experience to the youth in our communities. While football is a competitive sport, we believe that life lessons can be taught and learned through playing the game of football.
The NIFC currently has grown to a total of 16 great organizations that participate. We believe it is important to manage growth so that all athletes are provided a positive experience. We encourage organizations wishing to make a change to contact us as we are always looking for those who fit our philosophy.
The NIFC continues to provide a fun, safe, and competitive environment. Our philosophy is simple...."It's about the kids!"
“Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.”
--Paul "Bear" Bryant
The NIFC is Celebrating 11 Years of great football in 2018!!!
In 2006 some courageous, driven individuals with a common vision for better junior tackle football got together and started planning what is now the NIFC. In 2007 that vision became a reality.
Congratulations! and THANK YOU to all who have made the NIFC great!.
