Updates from the Commissioner

 REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021 SEASON WILL OPEN APRIL 1, 2021. THE NORTHWEST FLORIDA YOUTH SPORTS ALLIANCE (OUR REGULAR LEAGUE) WILL PLAY IN 2021 AND WE WILL RETURN TO THAT LEAGUE. ** Look for an INCREASE in registration fees for the 2021 season. The registration fee for NYSA Football has not gone up in over 25 years. The costs for league entry, uniforms and equipment maintenance has gone up significantly in that time. We will look to phase in slight increases over the next 3 seasons. More information to come.

Questions to: [email protected]


The first $40 of each registration fee for every sport covers the cost of Insurance, utilities and general operating expenses for the NYSA.  

Additional costs vary by sport, but fees typically pay for:

  • Game Officials - referees or umpires
  • Conference or Organizational fees - if the sport is part of a conference or other outside organization, then they pay fees to the league.
  • Equipment - balls, pads, helmets, and other practice or game equipment for the teams
  • Equipment for the fields/courts (nets, goal posts)
  • Uniforms
The registration fee does not cover the full cost of each sport.  For this reason, the NYSA raises additional funds via:
  • Concessions
  • Middle School Dances
  • Sponsorships
  • Fairs
  • Pre or Post-season games - where parking or entry fees are charged. 
The NYSA is non-profit and volunteer-run.  No board member, sport commissioner or coach is compensated.  We ask that parents volunteer each season in some capacity to help keep costs low and to improve the experience for our community.  Opportunities to volunteer can include working concessions, working the chain-gang, keeping the score board, announcing games, field maintenance, park pick-up and empty trash cans, and the list goes on and on.
