About UsUpdated Tuesday September 8, 2015 by Lower Makefield Football Association.
The Lower Makefield Football Association was incorporated on July 16, 2001 although the program has been active since 1994. The LMFA was created with the intent purpose of developing a football program in Lower Makefield Township, where all participants are guaranteed a starting position and the opportunity to play the entire game.With the exception of Columbus Day weekend all practices and games are held at Macclesfield Park, 1000 River Road in Lower Makfield Township. We take pride in this great tradition and we strive to create opprtunity for our children to learn the fundamentals of football, teamwork and respect for others in a safe, fun environment.The safety and well being of our athletes is our highest priority. For this reason all volunteers and coaches are required to submit to background checks and must participate in Red Cross certified CPR training.
At LMFA, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of safety, recreational opportunity and structured youth activity.
Responsible Sport Parent Tip:
Praise your child for having little or no reaction to a questionable call. This is the true sign of being mentally tough.
Responsible Coaching Tip:
Create rewards other than MVP to reward what you value. Try selecting the Most Valuable Teammate, or a giving hustle award like the Dirty Shirt.
