Detroit Lions Football Education - Youth Football Forum | Detroit Lions -


The Detroit Lions Football Education Forum is designed to discuss the issues critical to the day to day operations of youth football conferences, organizations, and teams. The forum consists of representatives in different roles from various leagues around the state of Michigan.

The purpose of the Football Education Forum is to allow for discussion of key topics, meet new league representatives and share innovative ideas with the hope of gathering new programs, concepts and rules for the betterment of the youth football experience for everyone involved. Beginning in February 2005 and initially known as the "Detroit Lions Youth Football Forum", the "Forum" began with 28 representatives and met semi-annually and quarterly for three years. The Forum went on hiatus in 2008 until it was brought back as an annual meeting in 2014.
