Competition:  The Youth Football Club of Mint Hill (AKA Mint Hill Mountaineers & Chargers) is affiliated with American Youth Football (AYF) and is a member of its local charter Greater Charlotte American Youth Football (GCAYF). During the fall tackle season YFCMH plays other GCAYF organizations, however during spring air attack and flag football we open the door to other youth football organizations such as Pop Warner. We are expecting large participation this coming spring so competition should be plentiful!

Game times/locations: All games will NOT be played in one (Mint Hill) location. We may play at different venues not to extend further than Mooresville. As of right now, all games will be played at Mallard Creek HS with the exception of 2 in Mooresville. All games will be played on Sunday afternoons from 1:30pm on.

Game field: Rules for 5-on-5 flag differ from those of 7-on-7 air attack, however they are both played on 40-yard fields(with 10-yard end zone). While passing plays are definitely a part of 5-on-5, it tends to be more of a running game for younger players. Air Attack provides a mainly passing game with only one run allowed per 4 downs. Rules for the season can be downloaded HERE.

What does my paid fee include? Fees include full uniform, (1) mouth guard and flag belt. Each player is to provide their own socks and cleats. Players will keep their uniform at the end of the season.

Forms required: Forms required for spring air attack & flag will be kept to a minimum. However all requested items MUST be submitted prior to any practice whatsoever. Players with incomplete paperwork will be considered INELIGIBLE and therefore not allowed to play once games begin. NO REFUNDS AFTER PRACTICE BEGINS. The following items are to be turned into your head coach:

– physical from a licensed medical examiner, current as of June 1, 2017 (must be current through entire touch/flag season). If you must obtain a new physical AND have plans to continue with our program into fall tackle, we HIGHLY recommend you use our fall required AYF form so it will carry into that season.

– GCAYF tracking card

– GCAYF liability waiver

– copy of your birth certificate

– copy of your 2nd quarter (1st semester) report card for the 2016-2017 school year

– small (wallet sized) picture ID
