Team Size / Wait List Information

With the amount of growth we've had over the past few years, some teams have grown in size which makes it difficult to get the experience that we want our players and families to have.  

The DYF Board has extensively studied this situation and has come up with the following guidelines for 2020:  

  • For Flag, team size will be in the 9-10 range.
  • In 3rd Grade, 12 kids per team for 8v8 football is a good number and we will strive again to keep teams at that level. 
  • For 4th-6th grade, we are going to limit each team to 18 players.  Above that number has proven difficult to get the right amount of playing time for everyone. 

The number of DYF teams will be determined by these limits which will be determined by first come first served.

Register early to avoid being placed on a waitlist.  

NOTE:  If COVID-19 still persists and forces season cancellation, all players will receive a full refund.

If you have any questions, please send an email to info@dragonyouthfootball.net

Go Dragons!!!

    Message from the Board

    Hello Dragon Nation!!!

    As we begin the registration process, we would like to alert you to a few important items pertaining to DYF:

    1.  Registration costs for our 3rd-6th grade tackle football has increased to help offset the need to rent an additional turf field for game days and to accommodate more teams on turf fields for weekday practices.  We are so grateful to the team at CISD for working with DYF to insure access to these fantastic new facilities. We also have purchased upgraded jerseys for our tackle teams that are more in-line with the other leagues against whom we compete.

    2.  We have a goal to limit team sizes to a reasonable number of players for 4th-6th grade.  Specifically, we will try to limit those teams to 18 players/team.  The number of DYF teams will be determined based on these limits and on a first come first served basis. So, it is important to register early to avoid being placed on a waitlist.  Please note this is a goal only and DYF reserves the flexibility to exceed these limits where it makes sense and as appropriate.

    3.  DYF will not accept any special requests for players to be placed on a team, play/not play for a particular coach, with the exception of those players that have applicable special needs covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 

    4.  Full refunds will processed for players electing to withdraw their application prior to registration close on June 15.  Partial refunds (less $100) will be processed for players electing to withdraw their application after registration closes and prior to the August 13-14 DYF draft. No refunds will be processed for any player after the August 13-14 DYF draft. 

    NOTE:  If COVID-19 still persists and forces season cancellation, all players will receive a full refund.

    We Believe in Dragons!!!

    Thank you,

    Dragon Youth Football

    Performance Course Summer Programs - 6th-8th Grade

    Developmental Course - DATES ARE SET FOR IN-PERSON

    The Developmental Course is geared towards our middle school aged athletes who are starting to grow their love for sports and training.

    We will focus on essential movement patterns in the weight room with an emphasis on building strength through bodyweight movements. This allows the athletes to continue to develop and apply their skills in a more structured weight room setting.

    The goal is to provide the athletes with competency in the weight room and improve overall functional strength. As athletes continue to mature, they will have developed proper technique that will allow them to maximize the benefits from strength training later. Through our movement training, athletes will acquire movement skills that transfer to their sport.

    Proper running, jumping, landing, and decelerating mechanics will be emphasized. Competing in an enthusiastic team environment and continuing to cultivate character through hard work will always be highlighted.

    Performance Course Summer Program - Grades 1st Through 5th

    Foundational Course

    Here is a video of highlights from our foundational courses: https://youtu.be/FVWXwPTqM5Q 

    This program is designed for 1st-5th graders and puts an emphasis on physical awareness, balance, coordination and keeping the FUN in the fundamentals.

    The ultimate aim of the Foundational Course is to teach the athlete basic functional movements while allowing them to explore, play and foster a love for hard work. 

    Unfortunately, PC had to cut back the in-person programs this summer.  If you would like to participate in person, and you are going into 5th grade, you can sign up for the 6th-8th grade program.  

    You also have an option to do the virtual training (see below):
