    It's been a busy off-season for CYFA. Below are some updates designed to keep football strong in our community

    It’s hard to believe registration for 2017 CYFA Tackle Football is only a few days away. CYFA has had a busy off-season working hard to continue to strengthen our association.  Based on your feedback, we have made changes we believe will continue to keep player participation and player development strong for years to come.  Below is a brief list of updates and reminders:

    • Registration Update: CYFA Tackle Football registration begins Monday, May 1 and runs through Sunday, July 9.  Rates remain the same as last year at $150 for 2-6 grades, and $175 for 7th grade. It will be important to register by July 9 so we can effectively create teams, schedules, etc.. Summer camp (included in 2-6 grade registration) starts July 31. More details to come soon on registration.
    • Summer Camps: We have updated our Football Camps and Training webpage for the 2017 summer training season.   CLICK HERE to learn more.
    • 8th Grade Football: CYFA 8th Grade Football joins Centennial Middle School to develop a stronger program going into High School. CLICK HERE to read more.
    • Flag Football: CYFA and National Flag Football Partner for an Improved Flag Experience. CLICK HERE to read how this partnership will help football grow stronger in our community.
    • Website Mobile Enhancement: Soon you will see a welcomed change to our website. Our new mobile enhanced format will make it easier for you to use our site from your Android or IPhone device.

    Look for more registration details soon.  if you have any feedback or questions please email us at 

    Enjoy your summer and see all of you in late July.

    CYFA and NFF Join to create an awesome flag football opportunity

    CYFA is excited to announce a partnership with National Flag Football (NFF) - Minnesota. NFF is the largest NFL FLAG affiliate program not only in Minnesota, but in the entire country!  Last year alone, over 25,000 participants played with NFF in one of their 60+ flag football league locations. This year, we are excited to bring this exceptional offering to the Centennial Youth Football Association.

    This partnership was driven primarily by the great feedback CYFA has received about the Spring Flag Football seasons run by NFF along with the requests for access to better fields, extending the age from 4th/5th up to 7th/8th and the need for officiating during the games.

    With this partnership, you will now have the following benefits:

    • Games and practices on same day - one hour practice followed by a one hour game
    • Games/practices will be on Sundays (10am - 6pm) for every grade level
    • Games/practices will all be at the Centennial Middle School football field(s)
    • Grade levels are from Pre-K through 8th grade
    • Two site directors that will manage game/practice days
    • Quality trained officials officiating all games
    • Access to the NFL Flag Minnesota Flag Football Championship Tournament

    The season will start early September and run for 8-9 weeks depending on the need for a rain/makeup date - more details to follow after registration begins. The registration process, coaching selection and league operations will be handled by NFL Flag under this new partnership, but the CYFA will stay actively involved.  Registration for NFL Flag will begin late May/early June - CYFA will send out an email blast when registration is open along with a link on our website. Expected cost for the upcoming Flag Football season will be $125.00.

    Please contact CYFA at with any questions or concerns.
