Flex Season Details

UpdatedSaturday July 23, 2022 byChristine Pulsifer.

Flex Program Overview

We know as new parents to the program that you will probably feel overwhelmed from all of the information outlined below.   We want you to have as much information as possible so that you understand the commitment involved.   

Teams

This year we are proud to offer two travel teams.  We will have a co-ed team for grades K/1 and 2/3.  Maxium of 16 players per team (all others registered after that will be placed on a wait list in hope of having enough to have a second team at that level).

Season

Our season traditionally begins the first week of August.  You will be contacted by a coach in July with details on when practice will begin.   It typically is 2-3 nights per week night for about 1-1/2 hours during August and then 1-2 nights during the week once school begins.

Paperwork:

Our league is part of the Central Mass Youth Football and Cheer Conference (CMYFCC) which is affiliated with American Youth Football (AYF) League.   AYF is the world's largest youth football and cheer league.    Being part of this conference/league requires us to follow certain policies and procedures for insurance purposes.   The following paperwork will need to be submitted to play:

  • Birth Certificates:  1st time participants are required to submit a Birth Certificate with a raised seal to show proof of age.     
  • Physical/Medical:   All participants should be medically cleared by a doctor to play any sport..  You will need to give us a copy of a 2022 medical or use the medical clearance form (not resume medical) on page 6 of the player packet.
  • NSYFCA Forms (General Info for Players & Parent Code of Conduct):  Our league has expectations of our players and families and we wanted to be clear on how our league operates.

Fundraising:    

All Flex families are asked to sell participate in our calendar fundraiser.   Calendars will be handed out the first night of practice and will give you 1 1/2 months to sell them.   

Family Committment:

  • Parents are asked to complete 4 volunteer hours per child in the league.   This could be accomplished with helping at events or at game day.  Parents that are interested in coaching can speak with a BOD member and register before the season begins.  If a parent does coach then the 4 volunteer hours are waived.
  • Parents of chilren participating in the Flex program are asked to stay at practice.
