Registration Fees for 2016 PLEASE READ CAREFULLY, THIS IS NEW……

Break down of New Registration Fee

$125- Prior Fee (This money helps in getting & maintaining equipment as needed, paying for refs, and all other functions of the SVYF Program)

$40-Uniform Fee (This will be for a new jersey this year, the organization will also be getting new game pants to go with the new uniforms, these will have incorporated pads)

$15 Team Fee- This is new this year.  We know that in the past there is other money that ends up being paid out by parents coaches, and the team moms for team parties, gifts, pizza and other stuff.  From now on the team mom will be given a budget and all team activities will run out of that budget. You will not be asked for any other monetary donation, the rest of the season. You may be asked to help with a spirit treat, or a half time poster or something like that. But that would be all.

$20 Increase for operating the program. We have not had an increase in our fees for a while, but the cost of stuff, new and to maintain, continues to increase.  We as an origination need to make sure that our equipment especially helmets and other protective padding are kept in good condition for the safety of your player. This increase will help in allowing us to stay up on the needs of the organization.

Registration from June 1st – June 15th

  • $250

All previous fees plus a $50 late fee (The number of teams we fill at each level will depend on registration numbers. We prefer to have smaller teams close to 18 per team. However, it is impossible for us to determine the number of teams until all players have signed up. Once June 1st hits, it begins late registration and your player will be put on a waiting list. **Therefore, it is certainly in your best interest to register sooner rather than later, so we can start to establish coaching staffs and accommodate every child who wants to play football.**)

We know that this is an increase and we don’t what that to deter youth from playing, so we will be offering a fundraiser that will run from May 15th - June 15th which will allow you to make your $200 registration fee back.   

Fatboy Fundraiser

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.

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.
