Frequently Asked Questions for Wolfpack Football

 

 

Q. Why is the Fauquier Wolfpack organization a great football experience?

 

A.Wolfpack operates under the governance of American Youth Football.  Established in 1996, AYF is an international youth football organization established to promote the wholesome development of youth through their association with adult leaders in the sport of American football. Rules and regulations are established to ensure that players play in an atmosphere of safety with a competitive balance between teams. Scholastic requirements for participation ensure that each participant understands that schoolwork comes first.

 

  • SAFETY: The FYF program emphasizes player safety. At every practice or game, a person qualified to administer first aid will be present. Before any player participates in physical contact drills against another player, he will have had 1 week of intensive physical conditioning. At each practice and before each game, he will go through a thorough routine of stretching and warming up exercises. Before he ever takes the field in a game, he will have had over 30 hours of vigorous training and conditioning. When he plays, his games will be officiated by registered football officials.
  • Players must condition for 5 days prior to receiving football equipment. Equipment is only issued after a completed registration form with payment is received by FYF. A parent or guardian must accompany the player and sign documentation to receive equipment with a $200 deposit. This equipment must be returned to FYF at the season's end and the deposit is then returned to parent or guardian.
