"Today, you've got a DECISION to make. You're gonna get BETTER or you're gonna get worse, but you're not gonna stay the same. Which will it BE?"

--Joe Paterno

Get better with South Parkland Football, tackle football registration is now open!  We have several options available based on your child age/weight/experience.  Please refer to the description of each team above the registration links. 

The registration fees are the same as last season however there will be a $20 late fee for registration after June 1, do not miss out!  We have also offered an option of purchasing your own jersey for our cost of $80.  Also if you would like to offer a donation to help support our football program it will be used for player and team equipment!  

South Parkland Youth Association (SPYA) is a member in the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Football League (EPYFL) www.epyfl.org. This is a tackle football league played with modified Pennsylvania high school rules and has several opportunities for our elementary aged boys and girls.  EPYFL is an age and weight-based league with five levels offered.  The teams range from flags B starting in Kindergarten to Varsity that the player cannot weigh more than 140 pounds or turn 14 in 2019.  Our season runs from August until October. 

Below are the registration links and league criteria for each level;

Varsity level has a 140 pound weight limit, players cannot be turning 14 in 2019, most players are in 5th or 6th grade and 11 or 12 years old.


Junior Varsity level has two separate league age/weight requirements and we have two separate registration links for each one.

  1. Player weighs 120 pounds or under and does not turn 11 before August 1.


  1. Player is older & lighter; weighs 85 pounds or less and does not turn 12 before July 31.


Pee Wee level has a 100-pound weight limit, players can not turn 10 before August 1.


Junior Pee Wee level has an 80-pound weight limit, players can not turn 9 before August 1.


EPYFL flags is different from our NFL flags league; the EPYFL flag teams are played at an instructional level, on a full field with 11 on each team, there is no weight limit, no player can be turning 7 in 2019, this level is designed for the younger players to get ready for tackle football.

Flag A team is designed for the more experienced flag players that have played organized flag football.


Flag B team is designed for the less experienced players, most players are in kindergarten.


Registration is also currently opened for our summer camps (Attached is an informational flyer)
