Maynard Youth Football & Cheer Registration Fee Refund Policy:
As a general policy, registration fees are not returned after June 1st for any reason. Once a participant has registered in the program and the parent has paid the registration fee, the fee will not be returned if the parent decides their child will not participate in Maynard Youth Football. Registration fees will be returned if the MYF&C President, Jamie Carroll is unable to roster a child on a team. Situations where this may occur may include but are not limited to: child being on a waitlist or age guidelines are not met. Any request to deviate from this policy will need to be considered and approved by the MYF&C President, Jamie Carroll.
Tackle Football Practice - We will start mandatory practices the last week in July. Your coach will reach out and let you know the specific start dates and times. All players must have a week of conditioning prior to going live so it’s important to make all practices so your child doesn’t fall behind. Our practice schedule will be set by the coaches and you will find out ahead of time when and where practices will be held. Once school starts, the number of practices held during the week will decrease. Your coach will notify you. A typical practice runs for about 2 hours.
Maynard Youth Football provides: Helmets, shoulder pads, game pants and game jerseys.
Player provides: Cleats (rubber, not metal), mouth piece (please have a couple), black mesh practice shirt & shorts (available to purchase) and cup.
Why does MYF&C ask for all this paperwork and have strict deadlines?
The paperwork requirements are determined by American Youth Football. The general form in which it is requested comes from their definition. We ask that paperwork be turned in by the deadlines because the task of organizing the paperwork for the entire program takes an enormous amount of time. Also, it lessens the time available to ensure players are eligible to receive equipment, begin practice and meet the Central Mass deadline for certification. Ideally, it should be completed before you receieve your equipment, in order to adhere to the deadlines set by MYF. Please help our volunteer board accomplish this task by turning your paperwork in on time.
What team will my child be assigned to? Football players are placed on teams according to age, grade and needs of the program. Team placement is not determined until registration has been completed. Number of players registered dictates number of teams. Unfortunately, MYF&C can not entertain any request for specific team or coach placements.
What if I have a financial hardship? Scholarships are available to those who present a hardship case to the President and Vice President. You can also work out a payment plan option if needed.
What are the volunteer opportunities?
Maynard Youth Football is an expensive and volunteer intensive program. We need every parent to contribute if we are going to continue to provide a quality program and keep registration fees affordable.
Every parent will be given assignments for sideline duties and/or the concession stand. You will see board members as well as coaches families helping out on these days as well. We cannot fill every position needed during games without everyone's participation. We always need help with our annual Fundraiser and many of the events that occur throughout the year (registration, volunteer scheduling, etc.) Please see a board member to have your name be placed on a contact list.
PLEASE help us out when asked. The MYF Board has members that work all year round to bring you a quality program. They are volunteering hundreds of hours of their time for your kids – we are asking for a little of your valuable time in return. It is also a great way to get to know the parents of your child's teammates. We have a great community.
Additionally, you do your children a great service by making sure they get to practices and games on time, and with the right equipment/uniform.
When does the Maynard Youth Football season begin and end? The regular season will begin at the end of August or beginning of September running through the last Sunday in October or first Sunday in November. If a football team qualifies for post season activities, the football games at the Conference and Region level are held in late October through November.
My child plays FBU Football or on any other Non-AYF Program, can they use the MYF equipment? MYF does not allow any equipment to be used outside of an AYF sanctioned event for liability reason. All equipment must be turned in as soon as their season is over for reconditioning and safety testing.
*** Maynard Youth Football Equipment is not to be used in participation of any other program that is not sanctioned by American Youth Football and Sadler Insurance. This includes any school team, FBU, or any other AAU Football program ***
