As scoreless games become more prevalent and players receive trophies for merely participating, it is increasingly difficult to teach children the important lessons associated with both winning graciously and losing with dignity. The Northern California Federation of Youth Football is dedicated to making those principles even more foreign to players in the league. Recently announced rule changes for players in the 7 to 13 age range now include a fine of $200 for teams that win by at least 35 points and week-long suspensions for violations.
