The Sherwood Youth Football Association (SYFA) will provide the children of Sherwood an opportunity to play competitive football in a safe, structured and enjoyable environment.
Sherwood Youth Football Association is excited to announce that there will be a Spring Flag Football season offered for all players K-8! Registration will be opening up March 1st through March 26th. Games will be held on Sundays starting April 11th through May 23rd. We are committed to getting as many players as we can on the field but we may encounter waitlists and will be constrained by field availability, so we encourage you to register early!
SYFA is proud to offer our community a No Pay to Play program. In a normal season, Players have the opportunity to compensate registration costs through fundraising. However, due to limitations for fundraising in the current environment, this season will be put on by the generosity of Sponsors. What this means is that there is no cost for registration and no requirements for fundraising. If you wish to do so, there will be an opportunity to provide a donation to SYFA during the registration process that will be applied to costs to run our program. Without the generosity of donations, our program would not be able to bring Flag Football to all of our players this Spring.
We ask that you take the time to fully understand the COVID-19 Protocols that will be in place prior to registering players. This season will look very different from our normal season, so we want to be upfront on expectations from Parents, Players, Coaches and SYFA Staff in order to provide a safe and successful season. Please understand that any failure to adhere to these protocols may result in our season being canceled.

We know that these are not the conditions we want for our Players but a necessity for our season. We are confident however that this can still be a fun season for our players with everyone’s partnership!
Prior to the first week of play, SYFA will be putting together each of the teams in the age brackets, that will be equal for fair and competitive games. We are unable to accommodate any requests to put players together this season. Teams will be a maximum of 10 players. Teams will be communicated along with Coach information prior to the first week of play.
Lastly, for those that are interested in Coaching, registration will be open the same dates as Players Registration. Each team will have two Coaches assigned. For those that register for Coaching, you will be required to complete a background check and be available for a brief virtual interview on April 4th. We cannot have football without our coaches and appreciate all of you that volunteer each year!
We look forward to game time soon!
Now is the time to get involved! Sherwood Youth Football Association is looking for new board members. Volunteers are an essential part of making SYFA a success. Without volunteers, we cannot provide youth football to our community. If interested please respond to the SYFA Commissioner.
The Fundraising Coordinator will oversee all fundraising activities including the car wash and early season mandatory fundraisers. He/she will also be the point of contact for any donation or sponsorship opportunities and work with the public relations coordinator to ensure each is properly recognized.
