Welcome

Welcome to the 2020 Youth Football Registration

We would like to welcome you to our youth football program, and we look forward to another exciting season.
The Shakopee Youth Football Association (SYFA) provides opportunities for participation in football for grades K-8. Each of the programs place an emphasis on Skill Development, Teamwork, Sportsmanship and a Positive Environment. First-time players are welcome at ANY grade level. Equipment and jerseys are provided by SYFA.

Flag football (K-3rd Grade) will introduce players to basic football skills, plays, and positions with limited contact in a fun atmosphere. An affordable, quality flag program with lots of playing time for everyone in a fun-filled 10-week season!

Travel Program (3rd-8th Grade) is a more competitive level with games played versus other local communities. SYFA participates in the South Suburban Youth Football League, playing teams from Burnsville, Bloomington, Eagan, Farmington, and Lakeville North and South. Their website is www.ssyfl.net for more info. Players will learn a football system similar to the High School’s varsity program. Involves travel to nearby cities for away games.

TEAM SELECTION
Our goal is to balance the teams as best we can to promote skill development for all participants, we will:
• Ensure each team meets minimum / maximum player requirements.
• Equalize teams based on player experience, size of the players, number of ball eligible ball carriers, etc.

ROLE OF PARENTS
Help create a positive environment on and off the field. Football is an intense sport with high emotions, especially in the upper grades, so it takes restrain to be passionate, yet respectful and courteous to others. We are trying to teach the kids to play the most aggressive team sport in America while maintaining emotional control. Please help us model that on the sidelines.

COVID-19 DISCLAIMER
The SYFA is working closely with local and state officials to institute the best possible guidelines during the season as it relates to COVID-19. A COVID-19 waiver will be sent out to registrants to review and sign before each player begins their season.
