The North Louisiana Football Alliance (NLFA) is a nine-man developmental football league based in Bossier City, Louisiana. The league operates as a single entity, owning all eight teams, all of which play their games at three hub locations within the Ark-La-Tex region during the spring from March to May. The league is also a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The NLFA was established in 2019 and began its operations in 2020. It was created to provide a platform that serves as a college alternative for underprivileged athletes to further player development. It is an additional opportunity for players to be evaluated and receive the updated film needed to advance to the next level.
The North Louisiana Football Alliance provides film, statistics, and other player data to professional Indoor/Arena football scouts and other scouting agencies upon request.
The league involves a variety of talent levels ranging from players that have played collegiately to players that have never played beyond high school prior to joining the NLFA.
Currently, four of its eight teams will compete over a seven-week schedule, in addition to preseason and postseason game(s) to compete for the NLFA Championship trophy.
The goal of the North Louisiana Football Alliance is to provide underprivileged athletes and young adults with opportunities to receive quality instructions from certified coaches and personnel to properly mold and teach them the life skills needed to be successful in life. The programs and opportunities the NLFA provides will contribute in a unique way to their overall development as athletes and citizens for the future.
The NLFA has a solid business model that not only focuses on player development and exposure but connects with underprivileged communities providing financial, educational, and outreach opportunities to young adults. It aims to be the premier developmental league in the southern region. As a whole, the NLFA is determined to build a reputation that stands out amongst other amateur sports organizations in the area while becoming a valuable resource for teams and leagues at the professional level. The NLFA strives to provide fans with an exceptional sporting experience while positively impacting the communities it serves.
