Colonel Youth Football (CYF)
Colonel Youth Football 2019 Sign-ups will be from March 1st to April 30th.
Sign-ups will be done on-line and we will have a walk in sign up day on Saturday, April 6th from 11am-1pm in the gym foyer. If you want to come in and meet with the Coaches and discuss anything we will be available.
Boys whose families are members of any Catholic parish in the Diocese of Covington are eligible to play for Colonels Youth Football (whether attending a Catholic parish school or not).
CYF will have three teams for Fall 2019:
- 7th / 8th Grade
- 5th / 6th Grade
- 3rd / 4th Grade
All grade levels will be playing in the Greater Catholic Youth League or the GCYL. The CYF and GCYL teach "Heads Up Football" for player safety and all Coaches are certified with USA Football.
All new players to the CYF for 2019 MUST register with the GCYL on their web site at www.GCYL.org
For information on CYF or signups, email the CYF President.
GREATER CATHOLIC YOUTH LEAGUE (GCYL)
CYF plays Cincinnati parish schools that will become the GCL in high school football (Moeller, Elder, St. X, LaSalle, Roger Bacon, etc.).
Guiding Principles of the GCYL:
- Catholic based - Live it and exhibit it
- True non profit with complete transparency
- A league dedicated to young people who participate in it. An organization to provide structure and fairness to the schools who are affiliated.
- Committed to supporting and preserving parish programs of all sizes under one league entity city wide.
- A league governed by an elected board of officials who provide each parish an opportunity to offer suggestions to change for the betterment of the kids who play in it.
- Commitment to support parish booster organizations that presently do not have programs with an eye on creating parish based football opportunities for potential players.
- Recognition of existing established programs in good standing with their existing leagues - NO ONE will be excluded.
- GCYL is committed to providing an exceptional experience for our parish families.
These represent the standards set by the league for all 2,500 kids and families who participate in the GCYL.
