Welcome to Holliston Youth Football – 2017
The Holliston Youth Football program provides an atmosphere where youth football players learn the fundamentals of football while participating in a competitive league. The program emphasizes teamwork, leadership, respect for one another, safety and fun.

Flag Football - now being offered to 1st & 2nd grade players

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY PRACTICE OR GAME UNTIL ALL OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS ARE MET.
American Youth Football is unique among other youth sports programs in that it requires its participants to maintain satisfactory progress in their academic studies.
Report cards from the most recent school year are required. If the participants grade average drops below 70%, a scholastic eligibility form must be signed by a school administrator. Any participant with a grade average over 96% is eligible to be nominated as an “All-American Scholar. You will be notified if your child is eligible.
The success of our organization depends on parent participation. We have many volunteer opportunities for the upcoming season. Please consider joining us!
Volunteers are also needed for the following areas:

Team Placement: Holliston has 5 competitive levels that are based on the American Youth Football Schematic.
Each team will play an 8 game regular season schedule followed by post-season playoff games.
In addition we have 1 instructional team (2nd&3rd Grade Team). This team play an 8 game regular season schedule. The emphasis at the 2nd & 3rd Grade Level is on learning without pressure to win. No championship is declared and post-season play is not allowed.
In cases where we have multiple teams at a level, teams will be drafted in accordance with the guidelines established by the Tri-Valley/Dual County League. A TV/DC league official will supervise the draft. Requests for team placement will not be accepted.
In order to enhance both the player and the team’s ability to succeed, football players will be placed on the lowest level team that they are eligible for.
The teams are as follows:
|AYF ALL-AMERICAN DIVISION|
1. Grades can be combined by the Association, with players playing "up" on a team designated for a higher grade, but players may not play "down" on a team designated for a grade lower than their grade.
Players exceeding the high end of the age range for their designated grade must play up to a higher grade level for which their age does not exceed the high end of the specified age range.
* Age as of 8/1/2017
