Katy Youth Football® - 2014 Spring 7on7 League
CLICK HERE FOR 2014 SPRING 7on7 SIGNUP
Katy Youth Football is hosting their fifth annual 7on7 Spring Football season in 2014. We are currently accepting online enrollments. Practices begin on March 1st, 2014 . March 1st is the earliest our insurance will cover the boys. Games will be played as double-headers on consecutive Friday nights in April or early May. The regular season is 4 weeks long with the 5th week hosting the playoffs between the top four teams in each division and championship game. The games are scheduled for Friday nights at 5:30PM & 6:30PM
Definitive Dates and Locaton have not yet been determined.
Typically, 10-12 kids per team is ideal. Although, some teams choose to have a few more, or less. We are having divisions for 2nd through 7th grades.
Teams can be made up of friends, baseball teammates, neighborhood kids, "all-stars", etc. All teams must have boys within the same grade. The only exception is that boys can play up only one grade. No one is allowed to play down a grade.
KYF is different than other leagues as we supply two TASO certified referees for each game and a central time-keeper. We supply on-site security and EMTs ready to assist as needed.
7on7 is very much like backyard football. It is a passing only game and one hand touch anywhere to down the receiver. Basically, 5 boys go out on pass routes against 7 defenders. The defense can play man-to-man defense or a zone. The center is not an eligible receiver and the QB must pass the ball down field within 6 seconds or the play is dead. The game is played on 45 yard fields with a first down every 15 yards. The offense only gets 3 downs to make a first down.
All boys love 7on7 because of it similarity to backyard football. It doesn't matter what position you play in tackle football, every player will get to go out on pass routes.
The regular enrollment fee is $100 per child. However, we will be offering an early registration discount. The cost will be $75 per player thru December 31, 2013. Each child will receive a dry-fit shirt and mesh shorts.
Rory Robertson (email@example.com) will be the primary point of contact for KYF 7on7 going forward. Robert Cortez ( firstname.lastname@example.org) will be assisting Rory with this process. Please direct all additional questions to them.
Above is the link to sign up. Each head coach needs to register on the site. Have your team sign up to play for your team name (you can make up whatever team name you like, first come, first served) or for your head coach's last name.
The 7on7 head coach's son (only one) gets to play for free. As it stands, please register and pay for the head coach's son and he will be refunded once confirmed as the head coach.
Send in your expected roster to Rory and Robert, and they will make sure the boy is placed on your team.
From time to time, we have boys sign up that do not have a team and we may be able to provide you with some extra kids if you request. Boys will not be placed on a team without the consent of the head coach.
I hope everyone of you will strongly consider fielding a team this spring.
This is a great opportunity to delegate this to an assistant coach, or a very interested parent, if you don't have time to coach or are just plain worn out.

KYF® 2013 FALL FOOTBALL REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
KATY YOUTH FOOTBALL® is a 34 Year Katy Tradition!
Join the league that has been "Doin' It For The Kids" for over 34 years in the Katy and surrounding communities with participation rates as high as 2,500 children per season. KYF filters local youth to Katy high schools and onto State Championships! We strive to set a solid foundation of sportsmanship, football fundamentals and lifelong friends. In Katy, the building of state champions starts early - right here at KYF!
KYF works closely with KISD Athletics to provide players the advantage required on future Junior High and High School teams. Don't miss out on a chance to play football for your schools team. Register online today and find out why KYF is the absolute Best!
KYF® partners with USA Football to provide all coaches with mandatory certifications and player safety training. All coaches go thru a thorough national background check, and all head coaches are interviewed & evaluated each year. They are graded on performance and compliance with KYF® policies and values. We want to make sure all head coaches align with KYF ® core values and have the tools needed to provide quality fundamental football instruction to your children. This year we will take that one step further and require all KYF coaches (Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches) to go thru hands on player safety training, team management & leadership training and other team building exercises. We will be teaching all football coaches the new Heads Up Football initiative driven by the NFL. At KYF®, Player Safety Always comes first!
Team assignments are based on grade, age and school. All games are played on Saturdays at the Morton Ranch Complex. Registration for football players includes complete uniform of home and away jerseys, pants, mouthpiece and NFL team helmet decal (tackle players only). Some of the NFL teams represented are the Bears, Broncos, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Colts, Cowboys, Dolphins, Falcons, Giants, Jets, Packers, Patriots, Ravens, Saints, Steelers, Texans and Titans just to name a few. Don't miss out!
The Regular Registration rate is currently $175 and will be offered until June 30th. Starting July 1st, Late Registration will begin with the rate of $200. These rates apply to football players in 1st through 6th grade tackle.

7th Grade Cheer

Things You Need To Know For Fall League
We get tons of great questions throughout the registration period. Here are some things to know about the upcoming season and may hopefully clear some things up.
We offer a 9 week game schedule, plus the possibility of 3 additional games for playoffs (depends on your division). If your team makes it the the Turf Bowl, your player/cheerleader will have the unique opportunity to play the big game at RHODES STADIUM!! We are are the only league that offers that kind of opportunity!!
Practice begins the week of August 5th for all teams, both football and cheer. No practices should be taking place before that date. Teams are allowed up to 8 hours of practice until the week of August 26th. Starting August 26th, teams are allowed 6 hours of football, 4 hours of practice and 2 hours for their game per week.
Practice locations, days and times are determined by the coach and will be discussed with you once the coach receives his rosters (in July).
All games are played on Saturdays at the Morton Ranch complex. Games begin Saturday September 7th.
Each football team is required a minimum sponsorship of $500 and each cheer team is required a minimum sponsorship of $300. This can come in the form of one or several company sponsorships, or a team collection. Sponsor funds are essential assets needed by KYF to cover expenses. Registration fees do not cover the multitude of expenses KYF incurs to provide Katy Style Youth Football. We rely on sponsorship revenue to keep our registration fees down
Team Placement For Fall League
All players are placed on teams based on what KISD school they attend. Our Team Matrix has three NFL teams attached to each KISD school. If the Primary Team is full for a certain KISD school, then your player will fall to the next team in line for your school, and so on. Our goal is to keep players together that live in the same area and attend the same schools. In rare occasions, a player is placed outside the matrix when there are no teams available. This usually happens when you sign up late and teams are full. It is first come, first serve. The earlier you register, the better chance of getting on your home team. All players outside KISD will be placed on a team in need, as close as possible to where they live. We do apologize, but we do not honor requests for certain teams. We place players per the Matrix.
