Update on 2015 Fall Football Information



MYA parents, we implemented late fees as a measure to encourage timely registration. It is extremely important that our members understand the negative impact of registering late. As expressed in earlier messages, it is the overwhelming factor in delayed uniform ordering which puts our program at risk to receive uniforms late. Please encourage family and friends to register on time in the future.


Additional registration information

We are still registering for 4yr, 9u and 12u players. Please contact via email or come to Avalon Park after 6pm and ask for Vince Miller. 


Avalon Park is located at 1068 Avalon Blvd, McDonough, may also be listed as Industrial Pkwy

Registration Fee: $225.00 if renting MYA equipment, $185.00 if not renting MYA equipment,

$150.00 4 year old Instructional League
