Details for registrations below

To ensure fair play the NYFL requires all players to have  documentation that verifies age, grade and weight.  ​Important information as to what you will need and guidelines for signing up are detailed below.  

  • Total player Registration cost for Tackle (3rd-6th grade) is $100.    Families with multiple children will have a max of $150.  

  • Registration cost for Flag Football (K-2nd grade) is $50.  

  • We also require a $100 equipment deposit for tackle players when you are given your equipment.  WE DO NOT DEPOSIT THIS CHECK!  It is held in a file and will only be deposited if you do not return your child's equipment.  When equipment is returned at the end of the year, we return your check/deposit.  Football equipment is very expensive, we do this to protect the league from unnecessary expenses.  

  •  You will need to provide a copy of your child's birth certificate as well as a copy of a report card from the last school year (preferably a final report card), or something from the school verifying your child's last completed grade level.   The NYFL requires us to keep this information in our team books.  If you are a returning tackle player we only need a copy of your most recent report card. 

  • Players must participate in 3 practices before they can do contact drills (full pads) and must participate in 6 practices before they are eligible for games. 

  • Jr. Division (3rd-4th grade) - Maxiumum Weight 120 lbs

  • Sr. Division (5th-6th grade) - Maximum Weight 143 lbs

  • Weigh In's will be held at the Preseason Combine, final chance to Weigh In will be Saturday 9/3.  

  • A player only has to make weight ONCE by either of the weigh in dates. Once a player has made the weight, they will not be weighed again for the season.  

  • To play in games all players weight and paperwork must be verified by the NYFL by this final weigh in date.  If a player's paperwork is only turned in on this date, then the player will not be eligible to play game 1 of the season.  

  • If a player does not make weight by this date they are still welcome to participate in practices with the team, but may not play in games.  

  • League Rules state that all players MUST play in every game.  Depending on the total roster size all players must play a minimum of 4, 6 or 8 plays per game.  It's our goal to do better than this for each kid, but we take a lot into consideration to determine this.  Safety, practice participation, work ethic, knowledge/understanding and physical abilities all factor into this.
