Athletics - COVID 19 info

Special requests must be made in writing at time of registration by player’s parent and/or guardian. These requests are not guaranteed; the player agent and the AYFA board will make the final decision.

Special requests will only be allowed because of:
i) Medical reasons
ii) Parent/coach differences
iii) Parent/sponsor differences
iv) Brothers and sisters
v) Head coaches are allowed to request 1 assistant and the assistant’s child may be moved to that team by trading someone on the same draft line as the assistant’s child. If placing two coaches together makes a team disproportionately better than the other teams in the league, then this assistant coach request will not be allowed. This criteria will be based on skills tests evaluations, previous year ratings and discussion in the team selection meeting.

Please note - pairing sponsors with coaches cannot be guaranteed unless the sponsor is a head coach.
