Our tackle/cheer practice season begins the week of August 1.
Practices are 4 nights/week with days off/make-up nights scheduled on alternating Mondays and Fridays to give 4-day weekends for families to enjoy the end of their summer!
Flex Football practices will begin Monday, Aug. 5, 2 evenings/week.
Practices are generally held from 6:00 - 8:00 at Muddy Pond Field in Sterling until school starts. Following the start of school, practices are 2-3 days/week and may vary by team, as determined by each coach.
To ensure player safety, AYF requires all tackle football players to have a minimum of 10 hours of conditioning without pads prior to the start of padded practice. Players who miss practice during the initial 10 practice hours MUST complete their manadatory 10 hours prior to wearing pads with the team.
Teams will play one game per week, typically on Sundays. We are a member of the Central Mass AYF conference, meaning that all games prior to playoffs will be held within and against other Central Massachusetts teams.
In order for your child to participate in football or cheerleading, they must have submitted all required paperwork. Each athlete is required to submit the following:
