Information & Frequently asked questions


--What is my and my athletes time commitment:

  • Our season begins mid to late July, practice then will be Monday - Thursday 6:00- 8:30 (times are subject to change if needed) 

  • Practices are held on the practice field at Pleasant Valley High school.

  • Games will begin in mid to late August around that time practices will downsize 6:00 - 8:00

  • We will have a jamboree and or scrimmage one week or two prior to official games starting. 

  • Games are held on Saturdays (there may be a possible Sunday game if needed for scheduling) game times per team are 8u @ 10am, 10u @ 12pm, 12U @ 2pm and 14U @ 4pm. Athletes are asked to arrive an hour and a half or two before the start of the game for check in and warm up. 

  • Game schedules will be posted and handed out, if an athlete cannot make practice or a game it is the parents responsibility to communicate that with your head coach and or team mom. Any changes will be sent out as soon as they occur. 

  • There will be a snack list for parents to help out with on game day.

  • We have several fundraisers throughout the season; they are not mandatory but benefit the program. 

  • For our communication platform we use BAND app- Especially as the season begins for any last minute updates or game changes. 

--My child has never cheered or played football before, can he/she still sign up? /What team will they be on?

  •  We encourage all athletes no matter their level of skill or just trying out a new sport. 

  • Teams are broken up into 4 groups based on age only as of August 1 of this year : 

  • 8u Team - ages 7,8

  • 10u Team - ages 9 & 10

  • 12u Team - ages 11& 12 If you are in 8th grade must play on 14u

  • 14u Team - ages 13 & 14 - cannot be in highschool

--What equipment do we need to purchase and what is provided?

  • Your registration includes the use of a helmet, shoulder pads, practice jersey, game day jersey and game day pants.

  • At the time of the equipment hand out (TBD) there is an equipment deposit due in the amount of $250 in check form. This check WILL NOT be cashed unless equipment isn't returned or damage to the equipment is further than the regular wear and tear from playing. 

  • Parents will need to provide cleats, mouth guard, practice pants and a water jug. It is strongly suggested to have a large water jug as August is VERY hot. I also suggest purchasing a few mouth guards as they are the first thing to get lost and athletes cannot hit the field without one. 

--Can Parents attend and watch practice?

  • Yes, parents are encouraged but don't have to stay for practice. There is a sectioned area for parents. 

  • Per SYF any person without a badge cannot be on the practice or game day field.

--Will my athlete make the team? Will my athlete be guaranteed playing time?

  • Depending on team size at time of registration, your athlete may not get placed on a team, you can reach out to a board member to see if there are other options. 

  • SYF does not have a minimum play rule. Playing time will be at coaches discretion and earned during practice time, and at coaches discretion. 

  • Positions will be made for players by the coaching staff with several contributing factors, the positions may or may not be permanent - team needs are priority. Please support your athlete even if they feel it is not the spot for him it is always a bonus to learn new things.

--What are the registration fees? Are there any extra fees once the season begins?

  • Registration is from $380 - $495 (which includes a $100 non refundable dep/site fees) depending on when you register. Once registration is open earlier will get you a better price.

  • When you register there is an option for a payment plan. 

  • There is a required equipment and volunteer hours check ($250 &$150) these checks will not be cashed as long as all requirements are fulfilled - That is return equipment and volunteer hours are met (4 hours per athlete) Checks will be returned or destroyed at the end of season when items are completed and returned.

  • If your athlete decides to not play before Jamboree there is an opportunity for a refund minus the $50 non refundable deposit. 

  • We are a non profit and could use the support in participating with our fundraising efforts and events. 

  • If you own a company or have family or friends that want to become a sponsor have them reach out to any board member and find the form on our website.

--What paper work will I need to register?

  • All athletes need to have a medical clearance form can be found on the web site. It must be completed after April 1st, be sure to get the docs stamp and signature.

  • Athletes need proof of age,(Aeries  if you are a returner the player card will do. 

  • Get any forms you might need from the school before they close down for summer.

  • If you are homeschooling your child or their school does not use Aeries a letter from the school with their letter head that states the name, birthdate and age of the athlete and the head person's signature will work.
