|About the Mid-Michigan Rural Football League
|The Mid-Michigan Rural Football League, Inc., (MMRFL) is a youth football and cheerleading organization for kids from ages 8 to 13. It is designed to organize and maintain recreational athletics (Youth Football & Cheerleading) in an instructional nature. We offer supervision, guidance, and instruction aimed at making our kids better athletes and better people. Incorporated in 1990 we have grown from 7 districts with 19 teams to 22 Member areas plus 2 associate member areas with about 110 football teams in 2014. These are coed – full contact football teams playing under MHSAA rules along with Cheerleading squads and POM squads as well in many areas to round out the experience. With over 4,800 kids and over 500 volunteer coaches and staff we are proud to serve communities in 5 counties in Mid Michigan (Genesee, Oakland, Saginaw, Shiawasee, and Tuscola).
