A message from Ben Murphy, BYFC President

For those wondering why BYFC is registering for teams NOW - for a sport that begins in August - allow me to explain.

Berlin Youth Football and Cheer plays for the Connecticut Youth Football & Cheerleading League. Per their rules/guidelines all teams must declare their organizations team numbers by late Spring (usually first week of May). That means by a certain date we need to have a certain amount of players registered to fulfill a minimal number on A - D teams, including Cheer.

This does NOT prohibit us from signing up players all throughout the remaining Spring/Summer but if we don't meet their requirement our league loses certain privileges such as bylaw voting. This also allows us to prepare our coaching staff and league to properly plan for the incoming amount of players, equipment needs, training/familiarization for new personnel (coach and player) etc. I hope this helped as this question gets asked often.
