REGISTRATION COST BY GRADE DIVISION (FALL 2023):
REGULAR Registration Cost
*A player may play up one year, but they cannot play down a year.
GAME SCHEDULES: To be published in August.
PRACTICE SCHEDULE: Practice Days/Times/Locations are all determined by the volunteer head coach assigned to your team (usually on weekday evenings or weekends near your home). *We limit all our sports to 3 events per week - games and practices.
TEAM FORMATION: Teams are formed by the CFISD school that your child attends. If we have too many players from any school, a team of neighboring schools will be made. This allows Coaches to facilitate practices in and or around your area for convenience.
Players registering from the previous season (tackle divisions only) can LOCK IN with the previous team they played on if registering NO LATER THAN April 30, 2023. Teams are formed AFTER registration closes per CFSA Football rules, and it is CFSA policy to not release the registrant’s information to anyone other than the approved coach.
NOTIFICATION OF TEAM ASSIGNMENT: Team Rosters will be released to coaches at the end of July. Once the Head Coach receives the roster, he/she will contact the team and begin communication via the e-mail address listed in your child’s profile.
COACH SELECTION: CFSA has instituted an interview process for coach candidates. Coach candidates must register to be considered as Head Coach via the CFSA Football page (see link below). Applicants are reviewed by the respective Division Commissioners (DC) and the candidates are required to attend an interview session with their DC and/or Directors. The DC and his/her Director, will select a coach based on the criteria set forth by the committee to better serve the area youth. Final approval from committee is then required to formalize the selection. Coaches are announced after team formations, which is usually one week after registration closes. If you coached in previous a season(s), you are required to register on this link.

The purpose of this program is to provide youth an opportunity to participate in an organized football program that will stimulate healthful recreation, teach responsibility, discipline and fair play, and build self confidence in an atmosphere of competitive group sports. Although the sport of football is competitive, the winning of games shall be of secondary importance. The primary goal is to help youths develop traits of good citizenship and sportsmanship. All head coaches are responsible for seeing that they, their assistant coaches, players, and player supporters conduct themselves in such a way that the purpose and objectives of the CFSA Football Program are achieved.
