The States Developmental Football League’s key principals are professional development on and off the field. Our athletes, cheer teams, and staff as a whole will have the opportunity to be prepared in business so that once the regulation game is over they have a fighting chance. We place emphasis on the areas the other leagues don't. Those areas we speak of, are business and financial literacy. The components of business, laced with financial teachings are paramount for our athletes, as the game of football is a brief blurb compared to life after football.
