Questions and Answers about 2017 SeasonUpdated Tuesday April 4, 2017 by Alex Perez.
Q: When does registration open?
Registration opens on March 18th for returning players and April 1st for new players
Q: When does the season start?
A: Practices start for all football and cheer teams on Monday July 31st. These practices will be held at the lower field of Long field (the fields near Loring Arena and Keefe Tech)
Q: What days of the week do we practice? What times are they?
The practices run from 6:00-8:00, but we ask kids to be there by 5:45, so practices can start promptly. During the summer, practices are held Monday-Thursday. Again, these are held at the lower fields at Long. When the upper fields become available, we shift up there.
When school starts, we switch to a Tues, Thursday, Friday schedule.
Q: When is the last day for registration?
New players can register up through August 4th, but spaces fill up, and it can be hard on some players to "catch up" when they start late, so we encourage you to register early.
Q: How do you keep football and cheer open to all, even those who need financial assistance?
A: This is an important FYFC value. We strive to make sure that all children who are willing to put in the time and effort football/cheer requires have the chance to do so. We offer some scholarship; in return we ask that family members give time back to the program by helping out before/during/after home games at the snack shack or volunteering in other ways.

Q: I want to help make it affordable. Can my business (or I) sponsor a child?
A: Yes! We are grateful for those people who step forward to help. You can do so anonymously, or can be listed as a league sponsor as a recognition of your generosity. There is a form to download in the "forms" link, and it can be sent to the league President.
