CCYFL recommends that all players register online PRIOR to attending an Equipment Fitting. This insures thir personalized equipment sizes are reserved specifically for them to provide thier best comfort throughout the season. Late registrations will still be albe to play and have the same equipment provided for them, however they will have to make due with the sizes that are available.

     - Equipment Fitting
     - Weigh- In's

Tackle football players are issued game pants, shoulder pads, a football helmet, and game jersey all of which will need to be returned by the end of the season.  Starting in the 2019 season, we will not be giving out jerseys to players at the end of the season in order to keep registration costs low. When your child ages out of a Division they will be able to keep their jersey. Each player will need to purchase game socks for $10 from thier coach. Practices are held 5 nights a week for the first week of practice ("conditioning week"), and then coaches will maintain schedules up to the first game. After the season begins, practices are 3 nights per week. Practices are held at Johnson-Williams Middle School.
