Are there Bye Weeks? Yes. STYFA does not play on Labor Day Weekend.  This is often the last weekend for family getaways before the school year gets going so as a policy we do not play that weekend.  In addtion, most teams will have at least 1 other bye week.  These will not determined until the season schedule is finalized in early August.
Can I volunteer? Yes!  Just like all youth organizations it takes a significant amount of parent volunteers to make things run.  We have positions open in coaching, chain gang, announcer, clock operators, field setup, concessions and so on.
