Question: If I register late or move in from out of town can I still be placed on a team?
CYFL may compile a waiting list of players who would like to play in our league, but for some reason have missed registration. These players are placed on teams based on number of players participating. For example, if there are 10 teams and 9 of those teams have 19 players and 1 team has 18 players we would have 1 spot available for a waiting list player. Waiting list players are not guaranteed spots on rosters until they are assigned by the Board. The waiting list is first come first serve and will be closed prior to the completion of the 1st game of the season.
