The league operates with the intent of developing an understanding and uniform
approach among the
communities with respect to the conditions that each program sets forth for the
administration of its
respective grade school football programs.
The participants are to be separated and placed into each of the following
five groupings of divisions:
Division A - Heavyweights (8th & 7th Grades)
Since the number of participants in each division will
vary from community to community, the number of types of teams may vary. If
a program has over
40 participants in one division, that program can have a second team. They
could be uniform as to ability or a selected All-Star or Traveling team.
Division B - Middleweights
(7th & 6th Grades)
Division C - Lightweights (6th & 5th Grades)
Division D - Instructional
(5th & 4th Grades)
Division E - Contact Intro. (4th Grade & Down)
is understood that teams of over 25 are almost impossible to administer
from the standpoint of teaching fundamentals of football and that teams of
approximately 15 are dangerous if considering participation in the SYFL because
of illness, injury, or other outside commitments.
It is the agreement of all
participating organizations that any program that joins or wants to continuing
playing in the league must produce at least THREE TEAMS in any combination
A,B,C,D divisions. This is in agreement to provide an adequate schedule for
all fairness to the other organizations. All programs must report their level
of involvement BY AUGUST 15th each year. If any program cannot fully participate
with a minimum of three teams they will be excluded for the season.
Someone from each program MUST report scores for all A,B,C
level games, regardless of whether you were the winning or losing teams. A
report must be submitted by both teams each
weekend. All scores are to be submitted and no later than Monday afternoon
following each game. Failures to report scores by the deadline will result
in loss of points for that game.
