WJYAA Football, Cheerleading Sign-ups

The West Jefferson Youth Athletic Association (WYJYAA) announces football and cheerleading sign-up each Wednesday 6-8 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to noon at either West Wood Park or Converse Park concession stands through June (when there are baseball games being played).

Some leagues with football or cheerleading divisions have limited slots available for players or participants. WJYAA will take sign-ups on a first-come, first-served basis for those leagues. Leagues where there are limited slots will be accepted in the order of the actual sign-up was accepted and fees were paid.

WJYAA is a member of the Midwest Youth Football League which participates with other local communities including Madison-Plains, London, Plain City and Fairbanks.

Football: Practices should start around the end of July or beginning of August, opening day will be at the end of August or the beginning of September. A draft or evaluations will take place around the second week of July. Specific dates will be announced on the website as the organizers make definite plans for the season.

Each player will be provided a helmet, shoulder pads, a pair of socks and first mouth guard. It will be the parent’s responsibility to purchase pants with pads (white), cleats and protective cup or if they want their own helmet.

Cheerleading: There will be a uniform fitting day by the middle of July for all participants who order a new uniform. Those who need to be fitted will be contacted for the fitting. Those who do not purchase a uniform should make sure theirs still fit properly. If participants already have a uniform, there will not be a need to purchase one.

If cheerleaders have sibling football players be sure to list this info on the registration form.

WJYAA will supply all cheerleaders with a turtleneck, bow/hair ribbon, spankies and socks.

Cheerleaders may purchase a team warm-up on their own for around $45 or other items for the annual pink event.
