AYF/AYC is divided in to 8 regions. Below you will find a list of volunteers in each region who facilitate communication between local member organizations within their region and the AYF National Office. The individuals listed below are valued volunteers who are committed to youth sports and their communities, they are however not agents, officers or directors of American Youth Football.

If you have a concern or complaint related to the operation of your local organization, you should address that concern with your organization's board of directors and or in accordance with your local organizations stated policies. If you have an issue that, you believe, involves a violation of law, please contact your local authorities.

AYF/AYC regional volunteers communicate with member associations who are interested in inter-mural play and who have expressed interest in participating in the American Youth Football & Cheer National Championships as well as the All-Star Game.
