What do I need to bring to registration?
Proof of age (birth certificate or similar document), proof of school attending (school document, infinite campus, or school verification form), and your child will need to be present to weigh in and be fitted for equipment.
What is included with the WCYFL fee?
This includes equipment rental for a helmet and shoulder pads (these will be returned at the end of the season), as well as a team uniform (jersey and pants), and a mouthpiece which the player gets to keep after the season.
Are there any discounts for the WCYFL Fee?
We offer a $10 discount for siblings, this would be applied to the second child, third child, and so on.

No additional equipment is required; however, some families choose to purchase practice pants, practice jersey and cleats.
How many days a week will my child have practices and games?
For Division 1AA (ages 6-7) there are 3 contacts per week (combination of practices and games) and for Divisions 1 and 2 there are 4 contacts per week.
Are practices and games on certain days of the week?
Practices are at the discretion of the coach, typically there will NOT be games played on Fridays or Sundays, and there are no games over Fall Break.
How are teams organized?
Teams are organized considering both school attended and number of participants in the league. WCYFL makes our best effort to keep kids together by school, however, based on the overall numbers this can vary season to season.
If we do not live in Bowling Green/Warren County can our child still participate?
Absolutely. Your child would most likely be placed with a team that includes kids who attend schools closest to your community.
