SYF League Info


2024 Football Registration opens May 1st! This year we are offering Early Registration at $300 for Tackle athletes and $125 for Flag athletes.  Registration will increase to $325 for Tackle and $150 for Flag on July 1st. Payment Plan options are available. Tackle Registration closes July 15th and Flag Registration closes August 1st. Players must reside within the boundaries of the Oregon Trail School District or attend one of our OTSD schools to register with SYF; if you live outside the boundaries and attend a non-OTSD school, you must apply for a waiver and be approved before registering.

After registration closes, athletes will be put on a waitlist by emailing our Registration Coordinator at  Families will be notified by email if there is enough space on our teams for those athletes on the waitlist, or if our teams are full.  Waitlisted athletes will have a short time to register if space is available.  Late registration (for waitlisted athletes) will incur a $50 late fee.  All players must sell pepperoni sticks unless an opt-out fee is chosen and paid at the time of registration.  


Fundraising is very important to our program. It helps pay for expensive player’s gear, free camps and off-season workouts, etc.  We have several fundraisers: Pepperoni Sticks, Saturday Game Concessions, Sandy Mountain Festival Concessions, and Family Days at local Sandy businesses.  

PEPPERONI - All players are required to sell pepperoni sticks, unless an opt-out fee is chosen and paid at the time of registration.  Players are given 2 bags with 24 sticks each, one pepperoni and one teriyaki.  Sticks are sold for $1.25 each, or $30 per bag.  Players/Families will receive their pepperoni sticks in August, collect money as they sell the sticks, and turn it in by the given due date.  More details to come when the season starts. 

SATURDAY CONCESSIONS - SYF has a Concession Trailer for all of our home Saturday games. The Concession Trailer is run by a pair of volunteer board members. Our SYF players and families LOVE having concessions available for purchase during games, as it just adds to the Sandy Football experience. Parent Volunteers make the concession trailer possible! Every team will have specific days to work a shift or two in the concession trailer. Team Parents will send out sign-up information once the game schedule is finalized. Every family is required to help! If a team fails to send volunteers, or they do not show up, that team may forfeit a game. You must be 11 years or older to be in the concession trailer; younger kids will not be allowed in order for us to follow protocols.

SANDY MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL CONCESSIONS - We have the opportunity to sell concessions at the Sandy Mountain Festival in July to raise money for both SYF and the Sandy High School Football End Zone Club!  Volunteers from both organizations sign-up to work 2-hour shifts in the concessions trailer and at the Elephant Ear Booth. Sign-ups are shared on the Sandy Youth Football Facebook Page and via email.

FAMILY DAYS AT A LOCAL BUSINESS - Throughout the year, SYF will coordinate Family Days with local Sandy Businesses.  Our SYF Families visit the participating business on the assigned Family Day to purchase food, goods, experiences, etc.  In turn, the business donates a portion of the proceeds to Sandy Youth Football.


In addition to getting players to practices and games on time, parents are expected to be ACTIVE VOLUNTEERS in the league. We need parents as coaches, concessions volunteers, team parents, chain gang participants, fundraising participants, stadium/field clean up, etc.  The league is made up entirely of volunteers and each parent will be asked to help out in some way.  Parents are expected to positively represent SYF by following all SYF and TVYFL Rules, modeling safe, responsible, and respectful behavior for our youth.


All players, coaches, and spectators are expected to follow the SYF and TVYFL Spectator Rules.   According to the TVYFL Operations guide, “The following expectations regarding spectator conduct at all TVYFL sanctioned events, including regular and post season competition, are provided. Those violating or threatening to violate the following League rules or site management spectator conduct expectations, may be ejected from the premises, issued a trespass citation, excluded from sanctioned activities temporarily or permanently and/or referred to law enforcement officials.”

  1. Coaches, players, and spectators must maintain a sportsmanlike attitude at all events so that events may be conducted without unreasonable danger or disorder. (taken from the 2023 TVYFL Operations Guide.)

  • Harassment does not have to include intent to harm, be directed at a specific target, or involve repeated incidents.

This includes the use of, or engagement in, abusive verbal expression or physical conduct, especially if that conduct interferes with the performance of players, coaches, or volunteers.
