The cost to register for the 2018 ACYFA season: Grades 1st and 2nd (touch football) $50.00 and for grades 3rd-8th (tackle football) $200.00

Family Discount: If you are registering more than one player in your family for grades 3-8, you will receive a $20.00 discount on the second (and third, if applicable) child's registration fee.  In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time.  On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your family's players are registered within the same order. Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family's discounted rates.  Also, please note that the Family Discount does not apply if you are receiving a hardship discount.

Payment Plan: ACYFA offers a payment plan. $100.00 is due at initial sign up and the second installment of $100.00 is due by July 1st. You will be responsible for a $5.00 registration fee charged to ACYFA by SportsEngine for each installment (total will be $10.00 in addition to the registration fee).

2017 6th Grade Tier 1 Champions!

2017 6th Grade Tier 1 Champions!

Since ACYFA joined the NSFL/TCNYFL in 2015, we have produced Tier 3 Champions, Tier 2 Champions, and Single Game Champions.  But this year marks our first entry as Tier 1 Champions, meaning we are the best team in all the league for that grade.  This honor goes to the 6th Grade Armstrong Cooper Hawks, lead by Anthony Thomas and his great assistant coaches.

Including the playoffs, the Hawks record was 11-1, ending with an 11-game win streak.  The Hawks scored 336 points, and gave up only 28 points.  What a year!
