SYC is a member of the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL), along with fifteen other youth clubs. FCYFL is an age/weight based league. Team placement is determined by BOTH age & weight, not age alone. Age/Weight Matrix details can be found here. The football season runs Aug-Nov.
Players must have a government issued ID card (e.g. Virginia DMV ID card) that displays their picture, name, local address, & date of birth. A school ID card that displays this information is sufficient (e.g. FCPS SIS ParentVUE). Neither a Passport nor military ID will be accepted by FCYFL.
The ID card is not needed for equipment issue, Preseason Camp, nor practices. The ID is only used once, at a mandatory FCYFL weigh-in. Players weigh-in one time only.
The SYC Football program has provided fundamental instruction in the game of football for over 35 years. This is accomplished through an emphasis on sportsmanship, team play, self-discipline, maximum effort, integrity, and maximum participation. We have players from the Hayfield, Lake Braddock, Lewis, Robinson, South County, & West Springfield high school pyramids, but the program is open to anyone in Fairfax County. The success of our program is driven by the level of commitment and support provided by our volunteer coaches, players, parents, volunteers, and community that goes above & beyond the average youth program.
Our club provides an opportunity for beginners to experienced players from age 7-16.
