2023 TC Youth Football Registration

By TCYFA 03/12/2023, 7:00pm EDT

2023 Registration will open on May 1st and will close as soon as we reach capacity.  Don't wait to register if you plan to play! We are opening registration earlier this year so we can better plan for the amount of coaches and equipment we will need as we had record enrollment again in 2022 and had to turn families away. Thanks to the 2022 fundraising efforts we should be able to increase player capacity to almost 300 participants for 2023.

Traverse City students currently in Grades 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th may register (those that will be in Grades 3-6 in Fall 2023). 7th and 8th Graders do not sign up through our organization; they should sign up via their middle school.

TCYFA Equipment Return Reminders - VERY IMPORTANT

By TCYFA 10/23/2022, 8:30pm EDT

Thanks for a great season!

To ensure future TC kids can play and have great seasons, we need 100% of your equipment returned to your COACH in a clean and usable manner quickly after the season. Invoices will be sent to families by  November 14th for any items that have not been returned so everything is rectified before we send equipment off for reconditioning and order new items this fall (we have to order in the fall or we can’t guarantee getting items by next season).  Please do not return equipment directly to any YMCA location; it will not get checked back in in your name.

Items players keep:

  • Team socks, mouthguard, chin strap if they bought their own, back plate from shoulder pads if they bought their own.


*Your coach should let you know what day/time/location to meet at for equipment return if they have not already.

End of Season and Equipment Turn In

Stay tuned for equipment turn in details from your coaches. We need 100% of players to clean and return their equipment in the week following the season. Families will be invoiced for any equipment not checked back in (reminder that each player currently has over $400 of gear and jerseys). Thanks for your help with this!

Fundraiser - THANK YOU

THANK YOU to the families that donated and helped with sponsorships. Checks are still rolling in, but we have netted more than $22,000 to sustain youth football in Traverse City! This exceeds the amount we were able to fundraise in 2021!
