FAQ

“League” is the North Metro Football League (NMFL) and is comprised of many Associations located throughout North Fulton, East Cobb, Cherokee, Dekalb and Forsyth counties. The NMFL governs general activities, establishes rules and develops schedules for member Associations. The NMFL has a non-affiliated Chairman who oversees the NMFL Board which is comprised of Association representatives.

 

“Association” refers to the different programs participating in the NMFL such as JCYFA, Lassiter, South Forsyth, Chattahoochee, Centennial, Mount Pisgah, Kings Ridge, Sandy Springs and Lambert. Our Association is the Johns Creek Youth Football Association (JCYFA). JCYFA is a non-profit, community-based 501(c)(3) organization which is managed by a Board of Directors. Our charter is to provide youth football and cheerleading for elementary school students located in and near the City of Johns Creek.

“Team” is the various flag and tackle teams under the JCYFA association.  We typically have three tackle teams (one at each grade level: 3rd, 4th, 5th) with 16-25 players per team; and 12-15 flag teams with about 7-10 players per team.  Since we are not a “feeder” program it doesn’t matter what school district you are in, you could play for any team.

Registration fees cover game uniforms for Tackle (home jersey and away jersey), and Flag (game jersey and shorts); and tackle equipment rental (helmets, shoulder pads & game pants). Fees are also used for coach’s gear, field equipment, insurance, practice & game facilities, game-day supplies, program administration & operations, fundraising, referees, and league fees.

No. JCYFA has tried to get support from the City of Johns Creek and Fulton County but nothing is available. Many other youth programs like Alpharetta, Roswell, Sharon Springs, Sandy Springs get support from their City/County. Associations such as JCYFA are formed and run by volunteers and supported by registration fees, fundraising and sponsors.

 

Yes, but since a lot of expenses are incurred early (i.e., equipment purchase, storage, insurance, general operations, field use contracts, league fees, etc) we must adhere to a strict refund policy. Registration Fees are 100% refundable before April 30 and 80% refundable before May 31.  No refunds after May 31.

We offer FLAG football (grades K-8), TACKLE football (grades 3-5), and CHEERLEADING (grades K-5). The teams must field enough players to adequately compete in a development league. We high suggest 16-25 kids per tackle team and 10-14 kids per flag team. We are volunteer based and require participant families spread the word of our program to friends and schoolmates to expand our rosters.
