Just like last year, all JYFA registrations must be submitted via the website. Once your registration has been successfully saved in our registration system, you will be presented with 2 options for payment:
Pay Online (PayPal account is NOT needed to pay online)
Our website is setup to direct you to PayPal to complete your payment with a Credit Card, E-Check/Bank Information, or a PayPal account. Please note, you do NOT need a PayPal account to pay online. When you are directed to the PayPal website, you will be presented with a page asking how you want to pay. On the right hand side of the page towards the top is an option to login and pay with PayPal which draws from a linked bank account or credit card you may already have on file with PayPal. Below this option is section which allows you to simply enter your credit card details and does NOT require you to sign into, or sign up for an account with PayPal.
Pay by Mailing a Check
Selecting this option will generate a PDF document containing your registration details. After selecting this payment option, click on the link to your registration document, print it, then mail your payment to the address listed. The website will also email this file to the primary email account you provided while completing the registration form.
Checks should include your registration number (found in the email and on the completed registration form.) Checks and a copy of the registration should be mailed to:

There is a maximum family registration fee charge of $300.00.
All new cheerleaders who did not purchase their uniform last year, or have lost/out grew their uniform, will need to purchase a new uniform. A uniform sizing should be done at The Shack on Fulton Rd or they can be fitted at the walk-in registration on Sunday, April 14, 2013 from 1-3 PM at the Jackson Township Hall. All girls will still be cheering for the JYFA teams but we will all be dressed as Jackson Cheerleaders. Warm-ups are not mandatory but will be available for purchase at The Shack for those who would like to purchase a warm-up. If you have any questions regarding the uniform policy change please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be a $25.00 fee charged for all returned checks.
The 2013 registration fees for each participant are as follows:
$150.00 - Tackle Football (A & B - Leagues, Grades 4 -7)
$30.00 / $45.00 (if Jersey needed) - Flag Football (A - League, Grades 2 - 3)
$30.00 - Flag Football (B - League, Grades K - 1)
$50.00 - Cheerleading (Grades 3 - 7)
Any registrations postmarked, or submitted online, on or after June 1st, 2013
will be forced to pay a late fee. Additionally, any registrations that are received after July 15, 2013 are NOT
guaranteed placement for the Tackle Football leagues and Cheerleading! This is due to football players needing to participate in the evaluation prior to the league draft, and cheerleading needing time to order their apparel and equipment. Flag football leagues will accept players at any time, even after the season starts.
The maximum family registration fee increases to $350 for late registrations.
The 2013 late fees for each participant are as follows:

Starting with the 2010 season, JYFA no longer accepted hand-written, and mail-in registrations. JYFA requires all registrations be submitted online, however you may still mail a check along with your system generated PDF registration.
