Frequently Asked Questions

When do sign ups begin?

Sign ups normally begin in February and typically fill up quickly. Go to our “Registration” link in the menu for the most current information.

When does the season start and end?

The season starts July 22, 2019. The season, including Playoffs and Super Bowl, ends by December 7, 2019

What is the practice commitment?

Prior to the first game of the season, practices run Monday through Friday evenings. There maybe some Saturday practices and/or scrimmages. Practices run for 2 hours each. Once the season starts, practices are normally Tuesday-Thursday evenings. Some coaches may have a walk through, or no hitting practice, on Fridays.

Where and when are practices held?

Practice locations vary since we have so many teams. Practices are normally at one of the city parks in the Valencia area or one of the local high schools. Times vary but are normally week nights. Younger teams usually practice from about 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM and older teams usually practice from about 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Times usually come down to when the coach is available and the location available for the coaches time slot.

Where are games played?

Home games are played at Hart High School & Valencia High School

Away games can be at any other teams field location who are members of the PYFL. You can go to the PYFL web site for details: PYFL Locations.

Away games are typically in the Lancaster/Palmdale area, San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, Simi Valley, or Conejo Valley/Ventura (Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Camarillo, Newbury Park, Oxnard, Ventura, etc). Most away games are within about a 45 minute drive.

How many games per season?

There are usually 7-8 regular season games and you can plan on having 3-5 away games per season depending on scheduling. There are additional games if your team makes the playoffs. Playoffs are single elimination. If your team does not make the playoffs they may be invited to play in an end of season invitational tournament.

What do I do if I will be out of town on sign up day?
Online registration is available anywhere you have internet access. A friend can sign up for you. Registration is based on first come first serve.

When will I know what team I am on?

The league draft takes place in the beginning of June. You should be contacted by your coach or Team Manager no later than Mid June, so you know where to report for the first practice on July 22nd.

How many teams will there be this year in the SCVAA Warrior Football program?

We have estimated that the optimum number of players for the SCVAA Warrior Football program for 2019 to be between 300 - 350 players and about 15 teams. We would love to accommodate more players, however, aside from the availability of qualified coaches, the availability of practice and game fields also limit and dictate our enrollment. It should be noted that the SCVAA Warrior Football program is the largest chapter in the PYFL ahead of Cities such as Burbank, Moorpark, Westlake and Simi Valley.

How do I get a refund?

We have a strict no refund policy which you are required to acknowledge during the registration process. Please make sure your child wants to play before signing up. Costs are incurred, money allocated, and budgeted based on every player who signs up. Since we are a non-profit organization money is tightly budgeted based on the number of players signed up.
