The Yellow Jackets are an adult Minor League football team and non-profit organization that is giving players more than another shot at football. The Jackets provide an opportunity for the players to pursue higher education and help turn their lives around. The team will be comprised of men 18 years and older, from various backgrounds, and who reside in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Sarasota Counties. We are a proud member of the United Florida Football League (UFFL).
The purpose of the Organization is to bridge the gap between youth and young adulthood by playing top quality football and positively developing our neighborhoods and communities in the Hillsborough, Pinellas and Sarasota County areas. Additionally the organization will promote the development of leadership, character, sportsmanship, tolerance, discipline, and athletic ability. The Organization will nurture fitness, volunteerism, and a lifelong love of sports in the community. We will encourage and help those individuals who do not have a High School diploma or college education to go back to school and share in the dream of academic and athletic excellence.
The Jackets hope to provide quality family entertainment to our community. Our staff consists of volunteers from Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties that want to make a difference in their communities. Through community partnerships and the support of local businesses and organizations, the Yellow Jackets will achieve its goal of developing into a notable and worthwhile community-enriching program
The Yellow Jackets maintain contact with the JUCCO, NCAA, AFL, AFL2, Indoor League and NFL Recruiters to assist exceptionally talented players in reaching their goal.
