SYFA, COVID-19 update

Due to the COVID19 effects on our lives, the SYFA would like our members to not be concerned with youth football at the moment.  We are postponing our usual April 15 registration date.  We are hoping to begin registering on May 15.  You will be refunded if you register, and the medical guidance is to cancel fall sports.  The SYFA will be following medical authorities' advice on commencing football activities.  For now we want our Association members to take care of themselves, and their loved ones.  We'll get back to football when the time is right.  --- Zach Brazier, President SYFA
