Terms and Conditions

  • I acknowledge and understand that all Youth Sports Football League coaches are VOLUNTEER coaches and not YMCA staff. Therefore the YMCA has no control over practice times, locations or the quality of the volunteer coach assigned to your child's team.
  • In the event I (the parent) cannot be reached to make arrangements for medical treatment, I authorize the YMCA officials, staff or volunteer coaches to administer CPR/AED or FIRST AID and/or have my child transported to the nearest hospital for treatment.
  • I certify that my child has been examined by a licensed physician in the past 12 months and is able to participate in YMCA Youth Sports Football clinics, games, practices and activities.
  • I have received, reviewed and agree to abide by the YMCA's Youth Sports Football League policies, procedures, payment, conduct and disciplinary procedures as found on the www.ynela.org website.
  • I authorize media interviews, photos, videos and/or television interviews of my child during his/her time participating in the YMCA Youth Sports Football League.
  • As a parent, I agree to exhibit and uphold the YMCA CORE VALUES of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility while at all YMCA Youth Sports practices, activities and games. I also understand that if I do not I will be asked to leave by YMCA coaches, officials and/or staff.

Furthermore, if I falsify this information, the team will forfeit all games that my child played in and my child will not be able to play.
