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.     
  • Player Packet:   AYF forms that are needed to play
  • Physical/Medical:   All participants should be medically cleared by a doctor to play any sport.
  • Report Card:   Academics should be the # 1 priority to our players.  Students that are not meeting academic benchmarks cannot participate in our program.

All Flex families are asked to sell participate in our calendar fundraiser.
