Opening Day Meeting
July 30, 2018 – 05:30 PM
Welcome to the SouthEastern Youth Football Association! We’re so glad to have you with us for the season. We’ve been working hard in the off season to prepare. Below are a couple of important pieces of information. Please read them carefully. We try to keep the website up to date as much as possible so please check it if you have any questions…most can be answered on the FAQ tab.First, the season begins July 29th with a parent & player meeting at 6:30PM on the hill by the KDHS practice field (behind where the bleachers used to be and beside the SEMS, you may want to bring a chair or blanket...inclement weather meeting will be held in SEMS cafeteria, rear entrance). Please bring along the following documents if you have not already turned them in:1.) Copy of your child’s birth certificate (not needed if your child played for SEYFA last season)2.) The appropriate YCYFA physical form for your child’s age group (our website, forms and handouts page). If your child has had a physical within the last year, your doctor will likely sign it. Otherwise patient 1st does $15 sports physicals.3.) YCYFA Code of Conduct (our website, forms and handouts page)4.) SEYFA agreement to participate (our website, forms and handouts page)5.) Proof of residency and school attendance (Spring report card OR district transportation form)At the meeting, you will get to meet your child’s coaches, Practice will start immediately following the meeting and last until approximately 8:00pm. The first week is heat acclimatization so your child should wear: shorts, T-shirt, cleats, and bring plenty of water. Plan on practices being Mon-Thurs from 6-8pm. Equipment will be issued that first week. (A deposit check will be required…it will NOT be cashed unless the equipment is NOT returned at the end of the season.)By the second week, your child will have been given a helmet and shoulder pads. They will need to acquire the following equipment: black football pants, groin protector, mouth guard, cleats (no toe cleat is allowed and they must be plastic), a practice jersey (old T-shirt that will fit over the shoulder pads works fine). Many players opt to purchase padded under shirts and shorts, gloves, arm pads…these things are optional and are by no means required.Practices continue 4 days a week until school starts, then will drop to Mon, Tues, & Thurs evenings from 6-8pm. Games are typically Saturday, with younger teams playing first. More detailed information about the season and schedule will be given at the parent meeting so please plan to attend.
