2018 Shakopee Youth Football Registration

Welcome

Welcome to the 2018 Shakopee 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 1-8. Each of the programs places 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 (1st-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!

 

In-House Tackle (3rd-5th Grade) program will continue training football skills, plays, and positions while introducing proper tackling and contact skills.

Travel Program (6th-8th Grade): is a more competitive level with games played versus other local communities. SYFA will now participate 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 school’s varsity program. Involves travel to nearby cities for away games.

 

SYFA is USA Football Heads Up Certified and Trusted Coaches Member. All of it's coaches are required to be certified through USA Football's and a Trusted Coaches Member.   See http://usafootball.com/headsup and http://www.trustedcoaches.org/ for more details.

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.
  • We will be using a new Evaluation App that will help us even further create teams that are almost completely equal  in skill and ability.


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.
