August 15th 2018 ACYFA Registration update:

 

Registration for grades 1st-8th is now closed. Please email Scot Cybyske at scotcybyske@gmail.com to be put on a waitlist.

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. A late fee of $25.00 will apply if registering after July 31st.

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).
