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.
Hello Wilson Football Community!
We hope back to school is going well for all of you. If you and your family is anything like ours, we miss playing football but miss just being active outside with friends.
In conjunction with the PIL and Wilson HS, WYFA is working on a plan to allow some form limited fall practice/play. Our hope is that we may be able to schedule something beginning around October 12th. This is tentative and we are still working on finalizing guidelines, schedules, locations, etc. to make these sessions as safe and enjoyable as possible.
Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
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.
