The league also has a cheerleading squad for each team, known as Tiffin Youth Cheer. Tiffin Youth Football’s draft is coming up. New league players entering grades 3-6 are entered into the draft and will be selected by one of four teams. The draft is 10 a.m.-1 p.m. July 27 at Frost-Kalnow Stadium. Registration for cheer is 10 a.m. July 27. The league is open to all area youth entering grades 3-6 in the coming school year. As long as they can pass a physical, they can play football. While the league is called Tiffin Youth Football, it is not limited to Tiffin residents. Visit Tiffinyouthfootball.com for more information.
