Registration FAQ

When and where are practices?
Each team's practice schedule is set by the head coach. We have numerous practice fields, all located in Leesburg, VA.

What are the weight restrictions for football players?
There are no weight restrictions for D league and flag football. Each season, the league defines the running back weight limits (red dot) for A, B, and C league players. Red dot players may play end to end on the offensive and defensive line. They may not advance the ball on offense by any means. On defense, they may advance the ball on an interception or fumble recovery.

The 2016 Red Dot limits are 85 lbs. for C, 105 lbs. for B, 125 lbs. for A7 and 140 lbs. for A8. Players who are under the limit but close to exceeding the maximum weight will be re-weighed at mid-season.  
Players who weigh in over the limit may not re-weigh.

How often do teams practice?
Both football and cheer teams must follow the following guidelines for practice allowance.

What is the league's refund policy should my child choose not to participate?
The league will offer a full refund, minus a $25 processing fee, for any child who withdraws prior to being assigned a team. After team placement, no refunds will be given unless extraordinary circumstances prevent that child from participating in CLYFL. Such requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

When should I hear my child's team placement, practice schedule, etc.?
A, B, and C league football teams are established at the league draft. Draft date will be posted on the website under the league calendar.  Players in those divisions should expect to hear from their coach soon after. D league football, flag football, and cheer participants should hear from their coach or a league representative the following week.

Can I request for my child to be placed with a certain coach or on the same team as a friend?
There is a field on the registration form for cheer that allows you to make such requests which we will consider but are not guaranteed. We are unable to fulfill requests for football. Football players are assigned to teams through the draft with the hope of ensuring competitive parity.

Do I need to provide additional paperwork?
All registrants are required to secure a doctor's release that affirms the child is healthy enough to partipate.  The required form may be downloaded from the documents page of our website.  All new participants must provide a copy of their birth certificate which can be scanned and emailed to our Director of Registration or mailed to:
 

Central Loudoun Youth Football League
PO Box 1649
Leesburg, VA 20177


Does the league offer scholarships for families who have a financial need?
Yes, we offer full or partial scholarships based on need. If you would like to request a scholarship, please click HERE to view the CLYFL Financial Aid Policy and complete the form within the document. Scholarships are not automatically carried over from year to year.

Why does the system ask for my cell phone provider?
Select your cell provider if you wish to receive text message updates from the league. These can include practice/game reminders, field status, or schedule changes. If you do not wish to receive updates on your phone, select "No Text Messages".

Is it possible for my child to participate in a different age / grade division?
We do have a policy that allows for children to play up one division if the league determines that it will benefit the child. You will initially need to register your child for the league that corresponds to his/her age. For cheer participants, there is a built-in field for requesting alternate placement in the online registration. Football players may apply for advancement by downloading the advancement request form from the Documents Page. A decision may not be made for football participants until after player evaluations.
