This year is the Wilson Youth Football Association's 20th Year! We are very excited to have been bringing football to SW Portland and look forward to another 20 years.
Join our teams and be a part of our success.
We hope you are all doing well and are staying safe and healthy. The WYFA Board has been working hard to get plans in place to have a possible fall 2020 flag and tackle season. Currently here is what we know: So far the most likely scenario is we will be moving the 2020 fall season back to September 1st. We are closely following the guidance from the Governor’s Office, OSAA, TVYFL and the PIL.
It is important if you plan to have your kids play and if approved by the governor’s office that you get them registered at https://www.wilsonyouthfootball.com/ now. Below is a tentative schedule for the season depending on the governor’s final decision:
We are working on our plans for practices and games based on the processes mandated by the Governor’s Office and by the PIL. This means practices and games will not look like they did. As soon as we have final expectations we will provide parents with the school district responsibilities, Wilson Youth Football’s responsibilities, Coaches responsibilities, Parent responsibilities and our athletes responsibilities. We will need to work together and support one another so we can make this safe for our kids to participate.
This is a very personal choice and decision for parents and families and we respect whatever your stance is on this. If you want to reach out and express your thoughts please do not hesitate to reach out to me at email@example.com .
As always we are open to your thoughts and feedback. Stay safe and Go Wilson!

It is with great pleasure to announce our Head Coach for the 8th Grade Team - Brian Heiken.
I started playing football in 7th grade and played through the varsity level at Thurston High School here in Oregon. My oldest son, Jesse, started playing youth football in the Wilson program in 4th grade. I spent that first year attending every practice as a parent and decided that I wanted to be more involved. After six years in the program I had served as a head coach for 4 years, assistant coach for 2 years, and president of the association for 3 years. In 2017, my family moved to Wilsonville where I coached youth football for another two years until my son moved onto to high school. With my kids off doing other activities, I've decided to return to the football program at Wilson to continue what I started and give back to a community I hold close to my heart. Football is a great sport for teaching kids the value of discipline, hard work, and doing your part as a member of a team. I look forward to coaching the 8th grade team this fall in the Wilson program.
