There is a lot of uncertainty with Covid-19, facility use, specific requirements for practices and games in contact sports, and many new requirements that may still be put in place, as well as trying to keep coaching staffs and number of individuals on practice and game fields to a minimum. The MCYFA board is excited that we will have a football season but has decided to stick to our end registration date with a few changes to keep teams to a minimum.
8 /9 year olds are currently full and being waitlisted.
10/11 year olds are currently full and being waitlisted.
6/7 year olds will close on June 30th or when they reach 15 athletes.
