Several years ago, M.Y.F.A. decided to allow participants to register as a waiver, when families could not afford for their child to participate in football or cheerleading. During that time we have seen an increase in the number of waivers requested. Because of this need, we have decided to develop a specific waiver policy. We also are implementing a payment plan to assist families with the cost of registration if they do not qualify for a waiver, and still feel the financial burden.
