About Us

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.

Division Of Participants
The participants are to be separated and placed into each of the following five groupings of divisions:

Division A - Heavyweights (8th & 7th Grades)
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)

Development Of Teams
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.

It 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 from the 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.

Reporting Games
Someone from each program MUST report scores for all A,B,C and D 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.
