Registration will close when each team has reached max capacity. There is a wait-list option should you find your child's age group is full. Always register for the waist. It doesn't cost anything to get on a wait-list and lets us know there is additional interest in a division.

No refunds will be given after July 31, 2024. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Does my child really need an ID card?

Yes! PLAN AHEAD! Per PYFCO bylaws, ALL football participants will be required to obtain a state issued ID card. Players are not eligible to play in any games until the registrant’s ID is provided to the league. This card will be required for both initial eligibility and again prior to each game to ensure your child’s participation. If no identification can be verified at the start of EVERY GAME, your child will be ineligible to play in that weekend's game.

The process requires your child to accompany you to the DMV and for you to provide their original birth certificate. Please allow ample time for processing, as IDs are US mailed to you after you visit the DMV, usually within 5-7 business days. More detailed information for obtaining this identification card can be found at the department of motor vehicles website (

Raffle tickets?

Included in your registration is $40 worth or raffle tickets for a chance to win one of our great prize packages during our Tiger Bowl (Homecoming) weekend. Tiger Bowl is the last home game of the season, usually in Mid-late October.

You have two options with the tickets:

1. You can fill them out yourself and turn them in

2. You can sell them to friends and family to help offset the cost of your registration.

Raffle tickets will be distributed with equipment at the beginning of the season to give you ample time if you opt to sell them.
