ACADEMIC CORNER

School starts September 6th and it‘s just around the corner! As we teach the children teamwork, sportsmanship and citizenship (on the field and off) be reminded that they are also expected to perform well in school. If it becomes necessary for your child to spend extra time studying or completing homework feel free to notify the coach. Practice schedule will change to three time per week when school starts, but your child may be excused if more academic preparation is required. Don’t forget to turn in your child’s report card for the 2015-2016 school year. The PYFCO wants to recognize each child who succeeds academically in the Super Bowl Game Program.

COACHES CORNER

All of our coaches are certified by the USA Football Association and have a vast KNOWLEDGE of experience in offense and defense. Please allow them to work with your child without interjecting your opinion. The coaches will decide what position your child will best represent the team, and all positions are subject to change without notice. Let us as parents remember to lead by example with good sportsmanship traits. Have fun with your children and remember – it isn’t that serious! It’s just football.

ALL MONEY FOR REGISTRATION IS DUE AUG. 19TH!

Please make sure you have paid your complete registration fees. We would not want your child to miss valuable playing time for not paying registration. Please understand this money goes toward insurance fees, league dues, purchasing equipment, concession needs, paying the referees, as well as other league expenses. All payments are due August 19th.
