A mouth guard is required during practice and games. These items are not program provided. The WPYF provides a reversible team jersey and flag belt.

Registration: Please register on-line. If you are unable to register on-line, contact John Hurtley at (preferred) or call 612-819-5014 and leave a message for alternative registration options.

WE NEED COACHES:  We are a 100% volunteer organization, we depend on parent coaches.  Please consider coaching your player's team.  All you need is a basic understanding of the game and a willingness to let the kids have fun in a safe and organized environment.  We provide you with practice plans, drill ideas and a standard playbook.  

Team Formation

Teams will be formed by elementary school indicated at the time of registration and registration time stamp.  There are no friend or coach-with requests. 

Priorities are first to ensure that players play on teams with other students from the same school. If a school is able to fill one team roster, and fill or nearly fill a second roster, the team rosters will be formed by arranging the players by registration time stamp and alternating the placement of the players onto the two team rosters with consideration for coaching coverage.

If there are not enough kids from a school to fill a team roster, the players will be grouped with players from a different school or schools. Departures from the above stated practice may be necessary to ensure adequate player count and coaching levels are maintained across the teams.
