According to Itaeli, the league involved boys and girls of under 10, 12, 14, and 16 years of ages.
On the final results, the official said that for boys whose ages were under 10, Young Life took the lead, followed by Future Star (Advance).
Young Life also took the lead for the under 12, followed by Future Star (Mambas).
For the under 14, Future Stars (Mambas) took the lead, followed by Habari Maalum and for the under 16, Young Life was on the lead followed by Future Star

Itaeli, who is the Future Stars Academy (FSA) founder and director, said the idea of the league was to unearth talents amongst children and take them into the next level of training.
“We have discovered that there are lots of talents amongst youths but needs to be boosted and this league was one of the important yardsticks,” he said.
“The league is a great way of keeping kids/youth active in a positive environment. All kids in the MYFL and FSA must be attending school to participate, which is a good plus to ensure the youth of tomorrow have a sound education structure.”
