Championship Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Presidents;

Please join me in hearty congratulations to all the teams, players, coaches, parents and fans that attended the MYFAI championship games at JCJC last Saturday. I would like to give a huge shout out of Thanks to Jones County Junior College for allowing our young athletes to play their championship games on the JCJC Bobcats football field this year. It was a break from our normal routine and the JCJC staff and workers took it in stride and welcomed us with outstanding hospitality. Thanks to all the guys that took their Saturday to come and assist in making the games go smoothly. Guys I know it has been a long season for a lot of players, coaches, parents and fans so I will keep this short and say Thank you for all the work you put in to make great memories for our young athletes. To the players and parents moving up to 7th grade football, thank you for the memories, to the players and parents coming back next year, I look forward to seeing you all next year, rest well and enjoy your short break, for the next season will be here before you know it. Below is a list of each game and the results. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Thank You For Caring About Our Youth.

MYFAI Championship Semi-Final @ USM

December 5, 2015 – 09:00 AM

 

                 Rumble at the ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!   

 

All teams coach must meet me in the North end zone as soon as possible, but no later than 30 minutes prior to their game time to flip for home and starting position.   

 

Have two adults from your organization to run the chains during your game.   

 

After your game and handshake, immediately clear the playing field and bring your team to the North zone for awards and team meetings so the next game may begin.               

 

Be sure your players, football, cheer, and parents know and respect USM's policy of no snacks on the sidelines.    

 

Please remember our league rules on keeping your sidelines cleaned up, you may have 5

total coaches, that’s one on the field and 4 on the sidelines, and, no one but coaches, players, water boys,  and cheerleaders are allowed.

 

Photographers and video recording will be allowed, please inform us of any prior to your game.   

 

Please have your proof of insurance and a cleaned up copy of your game roster with players number, name, age and weight with football coaches, their spouses, cheer coaches and their spouse included to me no later than 5 PM Monday November 30.   

 

My email is Dragodawg51@aol.com, my fax is 601-733-0505 and my cell is 601-466-0678.

 

This game of football we love and all sports in general are in the media spotlight far too often over negative actions of coaches, players, parents and fans already so I know I don’t need to remind you, but, speak with all concerned and have them be on their best behavior.   

 

Cheer loud and proud for your team but let’s not belittle or throw out negative remarks and chants       to your opponents.   Let’s make this the best sports experience we possibly can for all our children.

 

                       

Thank You For Caring About Our Youth.

Flag Playoffs!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
Guys
 
I have drawn the bracket for flag playoffs by blind draw, the only game that the draw matches this week is the Collins Vs Simpson county game playing Saturday at Simpson. They drew as team 3 & 2. All the other games played this week can continue as a non tournament game and those of you who don't have a game scheduled but are wanting a game may line up a scrimmage game for Saturday if you like.
 
I have uploaded the bracket and we will play off flag 3&4 as well as the championship at JCJC on November 21. You will find it in the handouts section.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call. My rehab is ongoing but I can and will answer all questions, just be patient with me because if I am in the middle of a set of rehab exercises I may have to call you back, leave a message.

Playoff Meeting Info!!!!

November 1, 2015 – 02:00 PM

 

                      

Presidents;

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, I am out of the Hospital and home rehabbing my new knee.  The last regular season games will be on October 31 and most of you still have a district game to play on the last game of the season so, in many districts that last game may decide who is in first and who is in second place or if there are any tie's to be broken with shootouts. 

Our playoff meeting will be held Sunday November 1st at 2PM in the Smith County Agriculture complex at Raleigh, in the room where we had book certification. Space is limited, so, please,  have a representative  from each league at our playoff meeting, preferably your league president or their designate, not coaches from each team. I will have a table set up for each district  with a chair for each district member.  The bracket that I sent out last week to each President is already drawn so all we lack will be to fill in the blanks with the names of the appropriate teams in first and second place and to set up any shootouts that may be necessary.

I look forward to seeing you all there, and, good luck on your next two games.

Thank You For Caring About Our Youth;

Lester Ivy

* * * Revised Week 2 Schedule. * * *

September 16, 2015

 

Guys,
 
Here is week two revised after the book certification meeting Sunday.   The schedule has been revised because of some leagues being non compliant with MYFA Rules and others have chosen to move to another organization.  In either event, this means we have to modify the schedule.    Please bear with me and I will try to get the complete schedule out sometime in the next few days. In the handouts section you will find a "REVISED" copy of week 2.  Some of the teams that have been impacted by the events above may have a bye as it may not be practical to match the open teams. If this occurs feel free to find a pickup game.

The Schedule has Arrived..................................................

September 11, 2015
                                                    
 
 
       Look in the Handouts section on the your left to find the divisions and complete schedule by week.

 

Schedule

September 5, 2015
                                                    

 
President,
 
I know you have 10,000 people asking you about our schedule.
 
The divisions are set, we used new software to run the division games and that seems to be working out great!
 
All the layout materials and cross check sheets are made and printed. Tomorrow at 10:30  Lester is coming over, (and some of the VC's also maybe, and of course anyone who would like to be part of the process is welcome to come) and we will start the final step of matching non division games and merging it all together.
 
Week one and final divisions will be published to the website and emailed to all Presidents by 1:00 tomorrow. The balance will be out between Sunday and Wednesday of next week.
 
As of right now this looks to be the easiest one in years, BUT there are still 1488 games to be scheduled laid out, typed up and cross checked numerous times!
 
I have made a cross check list with EVERY exception and request I am aware of and will honor every single one possible. If you have a date you need to be home or that you must be on the road and you have not sent that to me PLEASE email *(traypolk@aol.com) me before 11 tomorrow morning.
 
Remember this is to help your league when you have a special need, such as : I cant play at home on Sept 12 due to school having a band competition that day or we really need to be home the 2nd Saturday in Oct for a planned homecoming, but it can not be for everyone to pick ALL their home dates. If you ask for something and I find we can not make it happen I will call and see if there is another date we can work out to help.
 
Thank each of you and every coach, parent and supporter that helps make this possible for our youth and our community's.
 
Lets us all commit 100% to making this our VERY best year EVER, and to making this a year that our youth will never forget!
 
 
 
Tom Polk,
President

New Info about the Weighin's !!!!

 

Guys
 
Our days left until the first weigh in week end are dwindling fast  so I want to re-send this email not to brow beat anyone, but as a reminder for all. Please remember also, ALL players must be certified, even if they are a PEEWEE designated lineman, (the only linemen that can be DL'ed), they MUST show up with their registration form and picture to be stamped.   I am attaching the updated weigh in places and times  AND a set of updated rules.
 
Just wanted to take a few moments to remind you all of weigh in procedures and procedural changes that are being implemented in the league this year.
 
I have attached the 2015 weigh in places and times in excel format, addresses are included. You MUST have your players weighed by the end of the day on August 29 to qualify as an eligible player. You may still register players until your first game as always, but, after August 29 all players in each age group weighed in will have to wear numbers 50 thru 79 and not be eligible, regardless of weight. Also, AFTER the last weigh in date, (August 29th), if they are within 5 pounds of the age/weight limit for each group they must play up one group. If you have a player that knows in advance they can not make the 22nd OR the 29th weigh in, contact me with their Name, age,  phone number and  I will call them, and make arrangements to get them weighed sometime between August 17th and August 29th.
 
 We have purchased new calibrated legal for commerce scales and checked them against our older sets that are still in operation. No set was over  or under, all read the same.. Have at least two, (2)  copies of your roster, hand one copy to the weighing officer and have someone to stand close to listen and record your weights on your copy for once the players are weighed and the weight recorded on the copy you gave the weighing officer,  that copy will not be handed back to you. Have your players lined up in the order of the roster that you give the weighing officer with their registration form in hand and their picture stapled onto it. Have each player in the gear you want them to be weighed in as once they step on the scales the weight is what it is. The registration form and picture will be stamped and handed back to the player or your designate. Have your parents and all persons not needed by you to assist record weights and or direct players stand back so the weigh in officers can better do their work. It going to be hot and noisy so please be considerate. No player will be weighed without their registration form and picture to stamp. Lets all work together and make this a great season for our youth. 

Thank you for caring about our youth.
