Swartz Creek Youth Football 2018 Information

Swartz Creek Youth Football (SCYF) is now a part of the Metro Youth Football League (MYFL). Currently the teams enrolled in this league are: Swartz Creek, Linden, Fenton, Byron, Kearsley, Mount Morris, Durand, Holly, and Clio JR Mustangs FFC.

There are a few changes from last year: (Changes still updating)

Players will be assigned by age and grade this year.(example: 8-9 yrs/3rd-4th Grade Freshman, 10-*12* yrs/5th-6th Grade JV). No one above age 12 can play in the MYFL. Players may have the opportunity to play up with approval from the SCYF board but cannot play below their age and grade. Any player moving up is not gauranteed play time.

Weight Limits are different this year:

  1. Freshman- if player weighs under 125 pounds (with all equipment) they are able to run the ball. If a player weighs over 125 pounds (with equipment and including helmet) you are required to play offensive or defensive line only (inside the tackle boxes).
  2. Junior Varsity- if a player weighs under 145 pounds (with all equipment) they are able to run the ball. If a player weighs over 145 pounds (with equipment and including helmet) you are required to play offensive or defensive line only (inside the tackle boxes).

(We are back to weighing in before each game so your child's position availability could change from week to week if they are close to "LineMan" Weight)

The actual football size is peewee size for Freshman and Junior Size for JV.
