Football Athletes must reside in the Dover Area School District or request a waiver. Please see the Football Athletic Director with questions regarding waiver process.

*DYFA has never mandated fundraising and has relied heavily on game day donations. Per the YCYFA bylaws organizations may not charge parking/admission fees on games days.
As DYFA enters the YCYFA with higher league dues the organization must makeup for lost revenue. There will be one mandatory fundraiser during the season with an optional $50 buyout per athlete.

*Due to lack of volunteers in past seasons we will be implementing a $50 refundable volunteer fee. Each family will be assigned an allotted time throughout the season. Families are responsible to volunteer during their time or find a replacement. If ALL volunteer hours are completed the volunteer fee will be refunded at the end of the season.

Please let us know if you have any questions! We look forward to a great 5th Season!! ❤️🖤❤️🖤
