ENTIRE SEASON VOLUNTEER SPOTS ARE OPEN!

HURRY! We have just added volunteer spots for the rest of the season! 

We have open spots and we need LOTS of volunteers – this is a great time to get your hours done! Hurry over to the website and sign up to help before the best spots are gone!

We are still short volunteers at almost every game. We really need all of the spots filled – it makes for chaos at the fields if we don’t have enough volunteers.

There are no plans to have volunteer opportunities after the season is over. If you do not complete your hours, we will have to keep your deposit. Please get signed up so that doesn’t happen!

Pre-Draft Note to Parents

Sky View Youth Football Parents

We are now just days away from the football season!!!! HOORAY!!! Here is some important information that will be needed for Monday.

Draft:

Jr. Mites 2nd& 3rd graders – there is only one team.  You will be having practice at the corner field next to the Sky View Seminary building. You will meet at 5:30and will receive more info from your coach Cody Stokes.  Wear shorts, t shirt, and appropriate shoes (cleats are preferred).  Also bring your helmet (if you have it) and make sure your mouth guard is attached and fitted.

All other age groups:  You will have multiple teams so we will be having an official draft. We will meet at Forrester Acres at 5:30. We will divide into age groups and the coaches for each age group will work together to run a practice. This will be a conditioning/skill practice. It will last, depending on the coaches, 60-90 min.  After this practice the head coaches, Chris Beach from the WFFL and myself will sit down and officially draft the teams.  Once this is done the coaches will contact the players on their team and let them know when and where they will be practicing. Wear shorts, t shirt, and appropriate shoes (cleats are preferred).  Also bring your helmet (if you have it) and make sure your mouth guard is attached and fitted.

It is always good to show up to practice a few minutes early. You can be ready to start right at 5:30 so that you don’t waste your practice time.

 

Equipment:

We will be at Forester Acres on Monday from 3-5 checking out equipment and refitting as needed. If you were unable to come to equipment check out last week, please come at that time to check out equipment.

We will be at Forester Acres on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4-5:30 for any refitting that will be needed. We should also be getting helmets in this week for those who needed a different size. When those come in we will let you know and you can come and get fitted.

Just remember to be nice.  With organizing over 250 players, around 70 coaches, and everything that goes with that to make the season run your patients, support and understanding is greatly appreciated for this new group of volunteers.  Not to mention we are still trying to settle the mess with Jevin.  I am grateful for all the help of my board members.

COACHES NEEDED
We are still in need of 2 Head Coaches.  One for the Jr. Midget Team (7thgraders) and one for the Midget Team (8th graders).  We have to have someone step up and take these rolls, if this does not happen then we will have kids who won’t be able to play.  We know coaching is time consuming, and that everyone is busy.  We also know that you might not feel qualified.  If you are willing and good with the kids, there are coaches and assistants who will be willing to help.  If you know someone who would be willing to coach a team even if they don’t have a child playing, we would love to work with them.   Please call or text:

After the teams have been decided, your players coach will contact you and make sure that you know where and when your teams will be practicing.
Volunteering
Check out the available times to help with equipment check out. You can find the volunteer sign up on our website http://svyouthfootball.us13.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1a29e38d9b5457cac95b2b804&id=0b7597fa0a&e=a68b5b0a84.
– This has to be done by an adult no youth volunteers at equipment check out please and if you come to volunteer please don’t bring extra children.  There is already so much going on and we will be in the parking lot of forester acres, we just want to make sure that everyone is safe and there is the least amount of confusion possible.
FYI
These are some of the policies that we have in place to be aware of at this time.
When your register your player in the registration time frame, they are put in an age group based on their birthdays. They are guaranteed a spot with that age group. Once we look at the numbers and see how many we have on each age group, we will then look if there are players that can play older but lighter or players that can play up.  You can contact your coach or the board to make that request.  We have to look at all of the information when we start moving kids around.
Another thing to be aware of.  We know that your kids have friends that play and there are some kids who don’t want to play for certain coaches.  You must understand that we cannot accommodate all the requests, if there is a serious problem, then please make us aware. There are certain rules that must be followed as we do the draft. We want your player to have a good experience and we will do all that we can to make that happen.  But there is only so much we can do, your attitude about football, coaches, team, etc. will carry over to your players. The only way to guarantee that your player is on a certain team is to be a coach!

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 2.24.03 PM

We have continued to see a drop in volunteers, we run on sole volunteer basis, so if we continue to see a decrease it makes it hard to run our program. We encourage parent involvement. We are asking again that there are 5 volunteer hours performed for each player, this can be done by parents or older sibling (14+) for somethings.

We understand that people are busy and that you can’t always help out. If this is the case then there will be a $125 fee that will be charged, that’s $25 an hour. We value you time! If you know you can’t help and want to opt out of volunteering, then you can pay the $125 when your register. If you plan on volunteering, then at equipment check out we will have you give a deposit check of $125. At the end of the season when we have equipment check in, if you have fulfilled your volunteer hours then you will get your check back. WE WILL BE VERY STRICT WITH THIS, THIS YEAR. If you only get part of your hours, you will be refunded accordingly.  It is important that you get on the website regularly to sign up and see what volunteering is available.  Don’t wait till the end of the season, because it will be hard to get your hours in.

 

REQUIRED PAPERWORK
(Upload your documents here)

  • Copy of birth certificate
  • Copy of utility bill
  • Copy of insurance card
  • Copy of health physical form

Note: Please schedule your player’s physical now with an appropriate medical provider ** THIS IS DUE BEFORE AUGUST 1st** but accepted anytime! Download 2015 Physical Form

DEPOSITS
In addition to the registration fees, you will also be responsible for an equipment deposit ($150) and either a volunteer deposit or volunteer payment ($125). These deposits will be collected at equipment check-out in July. The deposits must be in the form of a check. The deposit checks will not be cashed; but will be held until the end of the season.  If you meet your volunteer hours requirement and turn in your equipment in good condition, the deposit checks will be returned at the end of the season (equipment check-in).

GAME JERSEYS
Everyone will be getting a new Game Jersey this year and that fee is included in your registration.  Players numbers will be assigned on a ‘first come, first- serve’ basis. When ordering a jersey you will be asked for your top 3 numbers, you’d like.  We will try our hardest to make sure that your player gets one of those numbers.

RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS
SVYF is affiliated with the Wasatch Front Football League (WFFL) www.wffl.com. The boundaries for Sky View Youth Football include as far North as into Idaho and south to the North Logan/Logan line. Your residency will be verified when you upload a copy of your utility bill. If you live in the Sky View boundaries (regardless of where you go to school) you will be REQUIRED to play for Sky View. No exceptions will be allowed. This is a WFFL rule NOT a SVYF rule. If you know of someone who lives in Sky View boundaries and has registered to play football at Logan or MC, please let the director Breanne Young know immediately.

EQUIPMENT CHECK-OUT AND VOLUNTEERING SIGN-UP
Every player will be issued equipment including pads, helmet, practice pants and game pants. Practice pants are royal blue and game pants are black integrated pants.  Please only allow your player to wear their game pants to games. This keeps the pants in good condition so we don’t have to constantly rebuy them. This year we will be doing equipment checked out by age group. This will allow us to have our coaches help in the fitting process. Equipment Checkout will take place the middle of July and we will keep you updated on dates and times.

NEXT YEAR 2017 Football Season

We have been contemplating what we will do as a youth football organization, next season when the High Schools split. We have looked at staying one organization, but changing the name so that we are not just associated with Sky View, we have also looked at splitting to stay associated with our particular high schools. After much discussion we feel that a split to our organization could work if we can meet certain bench marks. These benchmarks will allow both Sky View Youth Football and Green Cannon Youth Football to have strong functioning organizations when the split does occur.

That being said we need your help in reaching these bench marks

Finances-  This year we will be working on building a savings account for both organizations. We are looking for donations and sponsors for both. You can donate now for your particular organization… Or contact Breanne Young for more information on sponsoring and donations

Volunteering- We need people who will step up in both organizations as board members and coaches and other volunteer opportunities. This year will be a great time to shadow and learn rolls and responsibilities. If you are interested in helping out in this way, please contact Breanne Young.

There are other benchmarks that we will continue to be working on and if you feel you could help out please feel free to contact our board with question, concerns or comments.
