This fundraiser will raise $30.00 per player and LYFA will use this money for its operational costs.  YOU MAY CHOOSE TO OPT OUT OF THE FUNDRAISER by paying an additional $30.00 at registration.  You most likely will be asked to do some sort of fundraising for your team.  All money raised in the TEAM fundraiser, if your team chooses to do so, will be used for the teams choosing.

Q. What is the refund policy?

Q. What are weigh-ins? Are they mandatory?
A. Weigh-ins take place every year. If a player is heavier than a certain weight on the day of weigh-ins (based on grade level) he will be patched.  Patched players must start each play on the line of scrimmage for safety reasons, but may still have an opportunity to catch the football and score touchdowns. Weigh-ins are mandatory and will take place in August.  Specific date/time will be announced at a later date. Patch weights are shown below:
  Patch Weight (per grade level) shall be as follows:
2nd grade, 75 lbs.
3rd grade, 85 lbs.
4th grade, 95 lbs.
5th grade, 105 lbs.
6th grade, 120 lbs.
7th grade no backfield weight limitations.
8th grade no backfield weight limitations.

A.There are 8 games in the season. There is usually only one game per week which usually takes place on Saturday. (Note: Some teams might be required to play on a week night evening or on a Sunday). Away games are as far as Highlands Ranch to the south and Brighton to the north.  Home games for grades 2-6 are at Morse Park and grades 7 and 8 are at Lakewood Park but other fields may be used as necessary.
