Why do we need an association?
What League do we play in?
Will we be playing weekday away games later than 8pm in the evening? Flag Football, and 2nd-3rd tackle football will not have games starting at 8pm or later on weekdays. 4th - 8th grade tackle will have a few games that conclude after 8pm.
How much will registration cost? Cost in 2023 is $65 for K-1st grade flag football, $99 for 2nd grade tackle, and $225 for grades 3-8 tackle. It is our intention to hold our costs down as low as possible. Players receive a jersey they can keep at the end of the season. (Note: discounted rates available to families who qualify; more information included in registration form. We also assist families in need with equipment, not including helmets, on a first-come, first-serve basis).
Will my child get to play on the same team as his friends? Teams will be organized by neighborhood as much as possible up to 3rd Grade. 4th - 8th grade teams will be organized by player draft. It is our hope to have similar cohesiveness as with other Centennial Sports Programs.
Will there be try outs? There are no try outs.
What equipment will my tackle player need? All tackle players are required to have a football helmet and facemask, football shoulder pads, mouth guard, black football pants, cleats, protective cup, and football socks (sock color determined by coach). CYFA will be offering discounted equipment packages. We also assist families in need with equipment, not including helmets, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Can my daughter play football? Yes. CYFA tackle and flag football is open to anyone in the Centennial School District from Kindergarten to 8th grade.
When does the season start? Tackle practices officially begin in early August with games starting in September. Flag will begin in late August.
How long is the season? The season will be done by the end of October. It is our intention to eliminate any overlap with winter season sports.
When are the games? Youth football games can be played any day of the week/weekends starting in late August and ending by early November. The exact times will be determined by the league scheduling system. Note: Flag football games will not begin until after Labor Day.
Where are the games? Game locations will vary per grade level. The flag football program will have games at Aquatore Field in Blaine. The tackle football program (2nd-8th grade) will play some games in the Centennial School District area as well as surrounding communities.
Where and when are the practices? Practices will vary by team. It will be up to the coach to determine the dates and locations of practices. The first week of practice will be in mid August.
