CDL Mustangs are the Youth Developmental Football League under Creeks Football League for the past 3 years and will be kicking off our 10th Season in St John’s County! The Development League is an innovative youth tackle football program for K thru 8th grade created specifically to assure a safe and enjoyable sports experience for every participant regardless of age, weight or ability. Players compete against each other in balanced situations. As a result, all participants in this program derive significant benefit from the experience by developing new skills, gaining increased confidence, self-respect and self-worth, all while learning valuable life lessons including sportsmanship , teamwork, commitment, acceptance of discipline and the respect of others. This league works with the kids to not only achieve greatness on the field, but also in the classroom by making them earn helmet stickers for doing random acts of kindness versus getting something for scoring a touchdown. We want all the kids to grow and thrive everywhere not just on the gridiron! We run 2 types of programs the 9 year old age group and under are fundamental where they are match with an equally talented player. Our 10-12yr old division is a competitve division that had 6 teams in 2017 and they are drafted and play against different teams each week where the kids are placed in positions that are best fit for them to thrive.
