You have questions, we have answers!

 

What is included with the registration cost? What do we need to provide?     For football: With your child's registration costs, included is a helmet, shoulder pads, game jersey, game pants. You will need to provide a tethered mouth guard, a practice jersey, practice padded football pants, and cleats.  At the start of each season, we also set out all donated pants, jerseys cleats, ect and anyone is welcome to whatever you need.  
For Cheer: Skirt, Pom poms, Long sleeve shirt, shell (top) and Bow.

What does registration cost?

$300.  At the end of the season, if a family member/guardian has volunteered for their player, there is a refund available for $50, bringing the cost to $250.  There is also the early registration discount ($25) available 3/1-3/31 and the second athlete in same home discount ( $25 this can be Cheer and football, 2 football, 2 cheer ect). 

There are a small number of scholarship opportunities, please reach out if you are concerned about cost, the sooner the better. 

We have also been fortunate to have grant funding provided by www.everykidsports.org which will cover $150 towards your athletes’ fees, with a simple, easy application.  Be sure to check it out!


How long will registration be open? Depending on the vendor for uniforms, end of June/early July. Closing registration allows time to  organize teams and get schedules set.  In the past, we have allowed late registration, but there has been a fee to cover the cost of expediting a uniform.  Also, with early registration, you receive a discount.  (May 1-31st) 

How long is the season?       After registration, our season usually opens up with practices the first week of August.  During the summer, practices will be 5 days a week, in the evening.  Once school starts up, practice is reduced to 6 hours a week, and a game on Saturday.  Regular season is through the end of October, with  playoffs usually the first week of November.  

When is the first game?        Our schedule is done with our governing league, North Cascade Youth Football League   . The jamboree is the unofficial first game,  usually at the end of August.  Regular season games generally start in September.  Once a schedule is finalized, your coaching staff will be sure to get it to you and your team. 


Is there try outs?

No. As long as you have registered during the open registration time, you are placed on a roster.

What can we expect from practices?

Prepare for practice all day by drinking plenty of water, especially in the warmer months.  Help set your child up for success and have them responsible for their gear the night before.  Without gear, they can’t practice, and that is challenging to the entire team.  Practices will almost never be cancelled due to weather, so dress in layers. 

As a league, we are required to have 10 hours of no contact conditioning prior to full gear/contact.  This is for player safety, so fundementals can be established prior to any contact. 

What can we expect for games?

Games are 4 -10 minute quarters, Most of these games will total 2 hours including time between plays, half  time ect.  Players usually need to be at the game site 1 hour before games to have enough time to warm up and weigh in. If your player is late, they may be unable to play, or at increased risk for injury with out proper time to warm up. 

Can I coach?

Do you have basic knowledge of Football? A desire to lead kids by example? You might be just the volunteer we are looking for! Applications for head coaches can be found on our Facebook age, and our website www.swyfl.org under volunteer opportunities.  All coaches must be able to pass a background check for player safety. The board will decide on coaching prior to the season start date, and coaches will reach out to players for initial practice times.  Head coaches are encouraged to choose assistant coaches and other offensive/defensive coordinators as necessary. These are volunteer positions, and we are appreciative and supportive of our volunteers.

Can I help with practices?

All coaches are usually appreciative of assistance during practices, especially with the younger players.  Let your coach know you are able and willing, and you can be put to work. Any volunteers must pass a background check for player safety.

Can I request to be placed on a team with a friend?

 No. One of the great things about SWYFL is that players will be mixed with same-aged players from other elementary and middle schools. All of these schools feed into Sedro Woolley High School, so this helps them develop positive relationships with athletes they will eventually go to school with. Siblings are the one exception to this rule.

Covid 19 Precautions?

SWYFL works closely with Dept of health , following recommendations as well as the WIAA

Specific recommendations from the CDC can be found here COVID Sport guide

This includes encouraging distance between players during practices, no sharing of water bottles, increased sanitation of shared equipment, isolation for exposure, following same guidelines as SWSD.
