Flashes Youth Football Mission Statement

Franklin Township Youth Football and Cheer (FTYF) is a non-profit organization that offers an instructional football and cheerleading program for youth in grades Kindergarten through 6th.

FTYF is dedicated to teaching the youth of our community the fundamentals and proper techniques of tackle football and cheer.

Our emphasis is on developing physical fitness, sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills in a positive and safe environment.  

We strive to provide opportunities for all participants to develop individual skills and abilities while being a contributing member of a team.  It is important to FTYF that we provide a way for our athletes to build lasting friendships, great memories, and have fun!


Every donation makes a difference in bettering our community and we couldn't do it without you.  Each and every dollar committed to FTYF goes towards upgrades to equipment, on site facilities and a better experience for our Youth Flashes.

USA Football Certified Coaches

We require all of our coaches to be USA Football certified for safety and consistency.



Calling All Sponsors!

The Flashes Youth Football & Cheer Program has been a staple in Franklin Township for 50 years! 

That's quite an accomplishment!  We couldn't be more proud of our athletes and community for making this program the success that it is.  We'd also like to thank all of our sponsors over the years- without YOU, none of this would be possible!  

We are calling on our community to help us continue our success!  
If you or someone you know would like to sponsor the FTYF 50th Season, please contact Effie Brockelman-Allen, Sponsorship Coordinator for FTYF at or e-mail  

Thank you for your continued support!  Let's make our 50th the best season yet.  

Registration Opens April 1, 2023

One of the goals of the Franklin Township Youth Football (FTYF) program is to provide a safe and fun learning environment for the youth of our community.  We strive to create an opportunity for our kids to work together as a team towards common goals.  We emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for authority figures (League Officials, Coaches, and Game Officials), players and other spectators.

If this sounds like an organization you want your children to be a part of, don’t miss the opportunity to sign-up and register.  We will be registering football players and cheerleaders that will be pre-K to 6th grade during the upcoming 2023-24 school year.  We offer the following leagues:


  • Pre-K to K:  Flag Football 
  • 1st & 2nd Grade:  PeeWee Football 
  • 3rd & 4th Grade:  Lower League Football 
  • 5th & 6th Grade:  Upper League Football 
  • Marion County Youth Football (6th grade)

We hope to see you all at the fields this summer to help us build upon the Flashes Football Tradition! If you have any questions, please email us at and you can register or find more information at .

Flashes Football Foundation

The Flashes Football Foundation has been brought back together to help support not only our Flashes Football Programs from Flag to Varsity, but many more programs within our community.  

Having a strong Franklin Township Youth Football program is vital to the success of our program. The youth league is where players are first exposed to football and where we want them to learn to love this game.

We will work together with FTYF to ensure players are taught to enjoy playing the game but also that they understand the work ethic and attention to detail it takes to be great.
