HOMECOMING CELEBRATION
Friday, October 18th, 2019 5:00 p.m.

For those new to the NYSA Football program this year......
The Homecoming Celebration for the NYSA Football program and Cheer program is held the night prior to our Homecoming games. It is a fun event held on the football field where all of our teams, coaches, players and cheerleaders are introduced to the fans, families and sponsors. Each player and cheerleader get to walk through 'Rowdy Raider', the inflatable pirate from Navarre High School. This is a great photo opportunity as the players and cheerleaders exchange flowers and candy. A Homecoming Prince & Princess (7th grade) and a Homecoming King & Queen (8th grade) are announced. 

This year there will also be a Commissioner's 'True Raider' award given to a player from the 10U, 11U, 12U and 14U teams. This award will be given to the player from these teams that has consistently demonstrated improved performance, attendance at practice, is a good and supportive teammate, is a good role model for younger players, had a good attitude and was coachable all year and exemplifies Raider Pride!! 

The event is followed by the Middle School Homecoming Dance to be held in the NYSA gym from 7:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.

Come on out on Friday, October 18th to take part in our Homecoming celebration and see our Football program at its best!!

NYSA Football Commissioner

WHAT IS MY REGISTRATION FEE USED FOR?

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.
