Welcome to Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) Football. Our program has a tradition of building champions and players of character.
Football is considered one of the most demanding and rewarding of all little league sports. Therefore, it requires a huge commitment to the program. The success of our program is driven by the level of commitment and support delivered by our coaches, players, parents, volunteers, and community.
The Football program is designed to provide fundamental instruction in the game of football, in addition to providing for the physical, mental, and emotional development of each child. This is accomplished through emphasis on sportsmanship, team play, self-discipline, maximum effort, integrity and maximum participation.
Our Football program participates in the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL) along with approximately 24 other individual youth clubs that field teams in the various weight classes from Anklebiter through 150 pounds and approximately 7000 participants. Our program is open to kids ages from 7 to 16 years old. Teams are divided up by a combination of age, weight and experience.
Plan ahead...each player will need a valid DMV ID for weigh-in

Any player at the 130 lb weight class turning 16 years of age during the season (Oct 2 - Dec 31) will be required to play at the 155 lb weight class. Any player at the 155 lb weight class who will turn 17 years of age during the season (Oct 2 - Dec 31) will not be eligible to play in the Fairfax County Youth Football League.
Only youth between the ages of 7 and 16 years of age and who weigh at least 40 pounds may participate in the FCYFL. All youth shall play in the Age/Weight Division that they are eligible for. There will be no waivers.
Commissioners are responsible for checking birth dates and weights at club registration and the official FCYFL Weigh-In. For example, a 10 year old will play in the 90# group if he weighs from 86 to 100 pounds. He may not play in the 100# group unless he weighs between 101 pounds to 120 pounds.
For purpose of eligibility in the various Age/Weight Divisions, a players age on October 1 of the current year will determine his football age.
