Welcome Bulldogs to the 2019 Football and Cheer season for Saint Cloud! I am Matthew Green, Board President for SCYF. On behalf of the entire board, I want to welcome all of you to another exciting season for the Bulldogs! SCYF is 100% volunteer based. We depend on you, the parents and guardians of these kids to help support us so that we can continue this great tradition of developing our youth both on and off the field.

We know you have been anxiously awaiting information on Registration for the Fall and we now have it!

We were waiting on a few things to be decided at the Mid-Florida Commissioners meeting this week due to changes that will impact registration.  There are changes to how we break down and group teams this year.  Details will be below.  This is following the direction that POP Warner is moving to on a national platform.  

Here are the bullet points you have been waiting for:

Registration for RETURNING players and cheerleaders will open on Saturday, March 23 and will run through Friday, March 29

Saturday, March 30th it will be open to NEW players and cheerleaders as well as Fall Flag Football

Starting with returning registration on March 23 and through April 30th for all players and cheerleaders, we will offer an Early Bird discount of $25 off!

1. Registration fee for Football $225

2. Registration fee for Cheerleading $285 ***(includes shoes with the exception of 6u, (ages 5-6) and 8u (ages 7-8) Registration for these age groups will be $235.00 as no post season competition)***

  Any scholarship requests need to be submitted to scyfscholastics@gmail.com.

 Please register early as teams will be capped at 28 players for 6U (ages 5 and 6) and 26 players for 8U (ages 7-8), 10U (ages 9-10), 12U (ages 11-12), and 14U (ages 13-14).

  Any registrations beyond those numbers will be placed on the waiting list in the order received.

Payment plans are also available and will allow for ALL balances to be paid in full by June 30th. If balances are not paid by June 30th, registration will be revoked and players from the wait list will be given the opportunity to fill those spots.

As you noticed with the team registration limit information, our association has changed from the current structure of Tackle Football divisions based on a players age and weight where there was the option to play older/ lighter, to now implementing a division by age only. This is being encouraged by Pop Warner nationally and Mid-Florida Pop Warner. Currently, an estimated 75-80% of youth football leagues nationally abide by an age-only structure. This brings our team divisions to 6U (ages 5-6), 8U (ages 7-8), 10U (ages 9-10), 12U (ages 11-12), and 14U (ages 13-14) with no weight restrictions.

 Age group for the upcoming cheer season will remain the same.  Tiny Mite - 5,6 & 7     Mitey-Mite - 7,8 & 9     Junior PeeWee - 8,9,10 & 11       PeeWee - 9,10,11 & 12     Junior Varsity - 10,11,12 & 13     Varisty - 12,13,14,15 & 16

Age will still be based on league age as of July 31, 2019. If you have any questions regarding registration or how these changes impact your player, please email us at scyfregister@gmail.com.

We look forward to another great season for your kids and Saint Cloud Youth Football and Cheer!
