Question #1 - Other Football Tournaments Have Very Similar Names as the NYFC, Do You Run These?
The National Youth Football Championships have been around CONTINUOUSLY since 1972. Sports Network International only produces the football competition specifically entitled the NATIONAL YOUTH FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS. We have no connection to any other youth football events or leagues produced.

Over the years, over 265,000 football players and cheerleaders have been a part of the NYFC competition. Many have gone on to play in the NFL, an even larger number played in high school and college as well. With so much interest and so many past attendees, a few individuals have attended the NYFC and then decided to go home and put on their own post-season competitions. Unfortunately, hundreds of these competitions have come and gone over the past several decades. Usually, these events will linger around for a few years, disappointing most of the attendees and then disappear. Most of the people that produce these "copy cat" competitions retain the bulk of the rules, regulations & structure that have helped to make the NYFC the fantastic, safe competition it has become known for (thus, perpetuating the confusion!). Unfortunately, they often learn that it is a tremendous amount of work to produce an event of this caliber and teams soon choose not to attend for reasons too numerous to list here.

Question #2 - What Specific Things Should I Be Looking For in a Post-Season Tournament?
When you look closely at other competitions, you will often find that the information on past event attendees can be hard to obtain or is just plain false. How many teams attended? Where were they from? This is a good indication on what the tournament will host in the future! Do they provide paperwork, event schedules, maps and other materials to show that the event is very well organized and planned well in advance? Can you see locations for their registration/player weigh-in areas, cheer competition, awards presentation, and other vital areas BEFORE you send in your money? Generally, if the event is organized and well presented prior to your entry, it has a better chance of being organized and well-delivered WHEN YOU ARE AT THE ACTUAL COMPETITION!

Does the event publish or put out on the web a list of past participants or currently registered teams? This is critical! Often, football events will give you the impression that their tournament is much larger and more on a grand scale than it really is -- and they can do this because interested people often do not specifically ask for a list of the previous year attendees. When this occurs, it is usually because the event has fewer teams than you are led to believe, and/or the bulk of the teams that DO attend are local teams from the local area. And then you will play these local teams on their local fields in front of their local fans with local officials.....and you do not know most of this until you arrive....... doesn't sound very exciting, huh?

The single biggest "disaster scenario" is really two-fold. Either of these are terrible and unfortunately, yet happen to unsuspecting teams every single year. Smaller events will often take your money up front, promise to "find someone to play against your team" and then, because they have so few teams attending, either a) they will cancel your competition division in early November when it is too late for you to go anywhere else and hopefully refund your registration fee (leaving you stuck with non-refundable buses, airfares, hotel deposits and other items paid for but not able to use) OR they will move you UP into a competition division against players significantly older and/or more talented than your team WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE where your kids will be slaughtered. Either of these scenarios are a terrible let-down and/or downright dangerous to the kids and parents who planned on this trip, making it memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Recently, these two scenarios have become even more prevalent. Several competitions with large web presence touting themselves as "National Tournaments" were cancelled and/or severely curtailed very late, disappointing countless people. Worst of all, by the time this happened in early November, the NYFC was completely full as it is every year with well over 10,000 kids in two cities attending and we could not accept any of these teams for entry. These cancellations left these families with broken promises and empty dreams as their memory of Thanksgiving. Fortunately, these are not items that occur at the National Youth Football Championships.

Question #3 - What Are Some Specific Items that Make the NYFC a Better Experience?
We used to get this one quite a bit in the earlier years of the NYFC. Luckily, word-of-mouth has answered this question for most coaches and parents! Basically, everything we do at the NYFC is done from two perspectives. 1) How can we make the event special for the attendees and 2) How can we make the event as safe as possible while still keeping the event affordable for the majority of youth teams.

In specific, the Event Manager Sports Network International maintains no relationship to any one youth football team or league. There is no "local" league that runs the event or has any part in the forming or carrying out the rules. Therefore, the overall rules, event structure and division match-ups, EVERYTHING ABOUT THE EVENT is not designed to favor any specific team or association. This is critically important! Most tournaments are produced by a host team or league. These host groups many times ensure that their local teams have many advantages, seen and unseen. Know that when you attend the NYFC, no teams maintain a "home-field advantage" as SNI is not connected with any specific league.

The other most important item is extensive background checks of the participating teams (something most tournament give lip service to but rarely banish teams for previous cheating). It is painful to see so many of the teams and coaches that have faced LIFETIME BANS from further participation at the NYFC for using illegal players, faked birth certificates, etc. and they attend other tournaments without any questions from the tournament host. This cheats the kids and cheapens the overall tournament, along with making it incredibly dangerous by allowing older players that have no business being on the field with the other younger players. SNI uses several advanced methods, both prior to the event, as well as during the competition to ensure that all players are eligible to play on a particular team at a particular level. This is a vary large factor in why many teams have been attending the event for over 20 years.

The NYFC also uses a full 10-minute stop clock. This allows you more plays and more possessions, which means more ability to get all of your players meaningful playing time in both games. The NYFC also uses largely high school stadiums and other top-notch facilities so the kids can play where the big kids play, not on flat, converted soccer fields like some do. We bring NFL Cheerleaders to not only judge the cheer competition, but to add flair and glamour to the end of tournament awards ceremony at the Ocean Center for the Eastern Division event. It is not uncommon to see NFL players attend the other divisions of the NYFC as well! Again, how can we make it special for the kids!

Also, the NYFC maintains no additional team or individual insurance requirements to attend. This can be a very big hassle to be forced to run around getting insurance binders and other paperwork! All of the NYFC paperwork is received well in advance and easily understood. Our closing ceremonies/awards presentations are done in a special fashion, along with distribution of Wilson NFL autograph footballs to the championship head football coaches, along with a huge number of teams to draw from help to give the NYFC the most competitive game match-ups possible. With almost 40 years of experience in the production and hosting of youth football teams from around the globe and dozens of teams who have attended for decades, the NYFC is a special experience!

Question #4: - How is the NYFC Tournament Structured - How Are Teams Matched for Play?
Let's start with the structure of the event. The NYFC is designed as a college bowl-style event with each team playing two games, win or lose.

Rosters are broken down and many factors are considered when we decide "who is going to play whom". The largest of these factors include: team maximum age, team team max weight (for limited weight divisions), size of th community the team is drawn from, as well as the average line and backfield weights, historical league and team strength, as well as age spread of the roster, top to bottom. The teams are then hand-matched into different age & weight conferences. These conferences allow our company to better allow teams of similar age, similar weight, and similar TALENT to play against each other (again, to produce more competitive football games). REMEMBER, the NYFC is not about finding the greatest specific age/weight team in the nation, it is about giving hard working players, coaches and parents a solid football experince to end their season!

The conferences are given names such as National, American, Central, United, etc. to better identify and locate games on the large NYFC Game Schedule. Where groups bring multiple teams from the same park, all efforts are made to ensure the games at the same or nearby locations to allow parents with multiple players easy access to seeing both siblings participate.

Question #5 - There is No Cheer Event at the Central NYFC - What Can Our Cheerleaders Do?
While it is true that recreation cheerleading has greatly diminished in the United States to the point where a solid cheer championship cannot be held geared toward youth football teams, the NYFC ensures that the cheerleaders are considered a valued part of the entire NYFC experience!

Cheerleaders attend the event through a greatly reduced package price when compared to the football players. With this package, the cheerleaders will receive all of the same football items the players will receive (shirt, patch, photo and medallion), with the exception that they will receive an NYFC cheerleading medallion instead of a football medallion.

Cheerleaders staying through this reduced package also will gain admission to the field to cheer for their team from the sidelines, as well as perform at midfield during the halftime intermission. It should be noted that those cheerleaders who do not wish to attend through the package are not required to, but if they elect not to, they will attend the games and watch from the bleachers just like all other team spectators.

Question #6 - When Does the Official NYFC Invite & Website Become Updated for the Upcoming Season?
While the date for the NYFC (American Thanksgiving Weekend) is set immediately after the previous year event, the official invite and other needed materials are posted JUNE 15. The invitations are mailed out the July 4th weekend. That being said, very little changes from year to year so we always leave the previous year information posted to allow all programs looking for details the ability to read and plan from the previous year materials. Interested football teams and cheer groups are encouraged to call or email Sports Network International to be placed on a preferred status in our database.

Question #7 - Why Do We Play Just Two Full, Official Games - Can't We Play More?
This has been looked at every few years or so here at SNI. While we understand why well-meaning coaches would want to play more than two full games if they are going to travel a long distance, every reputable expert within the medical fields related to youth athletics, as well as every major youth football league (Pop Warner, American Youth Football, AAU, USA Football) agree that it is not arguable that the number of injuries and the severity of the injuries that occur during games DRAMATICALLY increases when you attempt to add a 3rd game (or more) in a three day period - much less a true two day period of play as most teams will see at the NYFC Central. This is especially so for players 12 and older, but even has a limited impact on younger players (honestly, statistics show no dramatic rise on players 9 yrs. old and younger). The games themselves, combined with the warm-up needed for same, just are not meant to be done in this often violent contact sport. This is due largely to the fatigue factor that occurs.

It must be noted that the NYFC Central plays two FULL football games and we also look to play a third shortened game to get the kinks out a bit. Many other places that promise more games use a running clock that can make playing the games somewhat of a travesty. Teams contact us annually with horror stories about games with running clocks where they only get POSESSION of the ball THREE TIMES in an entire game! The NYFC utilizes full, 10-minute game clocks with high school clock stoppage rules in effect so when you come here, you are playing real football.

Most coaches who look for this are well meaning but they just do not think of these factors when they clamor to play more than two games in three days, often until it is too late. Along with the obvious and overwhelming injury facts, the mentality of coaches that seek 3, 4 and even 5 games in three days often makes me question their underlying motivations. The NYFC is filled with teams that want to play hard, have fun and attend to reward their players and coaches for a year of sweat and sacrifice and have some great football and a memorable vacation together.

Question #8 - What Are the Age & Weight Divisions Used at the NYFC?
All divisions of the NYFC maintain competition divisions ranging from 7/8 to 15/16 years old, with teams attending the event from all parts of the United States and Canada (occasionally, outside North America as well. Most leagues regulate the MAXIMUM age and MAXIMUM weight of the teams in their league. This is because virtually every other important variable is controlled by the league simply by assuring that each district is approximately the same size. This ensures each team within the league, in theory will have approximately the same AVERAGE weight and AVERAGE age. It also attempts to equal the numbers of kids who try out for each team. Leagues also ensure all teams utilize the EXACT same league rules -- including the same age cut-off month -- are in use. While regulating just MAX age & MAX weight is adequate for league play (even though you STILL get 40-0 football games), it is woefully inadequate as the sole criteria for any extra-league play such as an invitational, post-season youth football tournament and why it has not been a part of the NYFC in well over 20 years.

The competition divisions of the NYFC are set-up based on the teams who elect to attend the event each year. Each division is hand selected to produce the most evenly matched, competitive, safe football games possible to end the season. Several teams apply for entry each year that cannot be accepted because we cannot find acceptable match-ups for their team. This may be due to their age and/or weight make-up, their team composition (no all-star teams are accepted) or just because we have no competition spaces remaining open for their team when they register.

The NYFC DOES NOT maintain these pre-ordained maximum age/weight divisions. Setting a single age/weight standard is the simplest method and that is why most smaller post-season tournaments still cling to this archaic and dangerous method of national team matching. In fact, the NYFC utilized pre-posted age/weight divisions until 1985. It was disbanded in favor of the hand-matching process. Since that time: final scores for all football games have become closer; injury statistics have improved overall; and teams attending from smaller towns have a more equitable shot at winning their games at the NYFC -- thereby gaining more competitive football games which is the goal of the event. And again, because Sports Network International maintains no relationship to any one youth football team or league, the match-ups are done in a fair and even-handed manner, not designed to favor any particular team or association.

And again, because Sports Network International maintains no relationship to any one youth football team or league, the match-ups are done in a fair and even-handed manner, not designed to favor any particular team or association.

Question #9 - What Criteria Do You Use to Match Teams for Play at the NYFC?
The most important Hand-Matching criteria used by the competition committee of SNI include: 1) maximum team age; 2) team age range (oldest to youngest); 3) average team age; 4) average team weight; 5) traditional strength of league (historical power ranking); 6) head coach / opposing coaches opinion of their team strength 7) results vs. common opponents; 8) number of players who try out for the team; 9) maximum team weight; 10) utilization of "lightweight/olders" or "younger/heaviers". Another big factor is the SIZE of the city and the number of players available to select from. To "boil this to the bone", the age of the players remains the most important match-up factor. Teams will always be matched against teams of similar age composition, first-first-first. This may be skewed by months on the age cut-off date of the opponents, dependent on the max, mean & average weight of the other teams, as well as the season record and overall strength the opponents may maintain.

As with any athletic contest, nobody can predict the outcome of a game. However, by using the Hand-Matching method, history has shown that the primary goals of the NYFC are promoted. Frankly, this is why so many teams choose to attend and return to the NYFC.

Question #10 - Must Our Team Arrive on Weigh-In Day - Can't We Just Show-up & Play our Games?
No, unfortunately it does not make logistical sense to have pictures and weigh-ins on the same day that the games begin - we could never get all of the teams through the process and still play games! The NYFC is about a football team and/or a cheer squad bringing their families together to attend a weekend athletic competition together. Part of what makes the NYFC so amazing is the level of organization. This comes from the ability to do everything properly.

With nearly 230 teams in the three events attending from across North & Central America, weigh-ins, registrations, team pictures, etc. MUST be done throughout the entire day on the day prior to the official games starting. In this way, games can be played on three consecutivedays, with your team playing two of those three days.

Question #11 - How Can We Best Get Our Rooms We Need at the NYFC?
Austin, Texas is a HUGE town and has MANY rooms available. To be able to acquire the many rooms needed for the NYFC during the very busy Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend, Sports Network works with the hotels to set aside all of the rooms needed at very reasonable rates. A complete list of these rooms can be found on our Official NYFC Rooming Services Website. These hotels have been specially screened by SNI. These properties welcome youth football groups, offer solid rate discounts, and have bcome partners with the NYFC. Staying at one of these properties does give you some tangible benefits because these hotels are a true part of the event. The biggest advantage is game dates and times are released several days earlier to allow these teams to schedule team Dinners with the NYFC hotels. Also, groups that bring two or more teams to the NYFC and stay at one or more of these NYFC Tournament Hotels can be eligible to receive a refund of their football registration fees (see the Central NYFC Costs for complete details!).

The NYFC host hotels appreciate the family atmosphere that surrounds this football competition. This partnership ensures the hotel that the teams will be adequately supervised and just as importantly, it ensures we will have sufficient hotels available at all quality & price levels at reasonable vacation timeframe prices. Does that mean that EVERY adult with your group MUST stay with the team in this hotel? Of course not, but hotels certainly welcome your players, coaches and parents to ensure both your group and the hotel have a great experience that you can repeat year after year should you wish.

Question #12 - Do We Have to Stay in the Austin Area? Can We Camp? RV?
The NYFC allows maximum flexibility for organized teams to stay anywhere they desire. However, teams that have players scattered "to the winds" should think hard whether this is a workable scenario. Scheduling practices, team meeting or even getting to the games on-time could be a nightmare. Having a parent or two scattered about can be workable but all coaches should think carefully about having their players scattered throughout the Austin area.

Question #13 - I'm Not So Sure Austin Will Have Enough for Everyone to Do?
This is a valid concern and you should be commended for caring about the general welfare of your youngsters and your parents. Let me start by saying I too was skeptical that Austin would have enough fun for everyone but I was so amaxingly wrong!

Generally, people who have not BEEN to Austin will dismiss this as a town with nothing to do. It is commonly known as the "Live Music Capital of the World" for good reason! But list after list has been compiled of fun and often free things to do to have fun in this great family city. From family items to more adult items, this complete listing coveres everything, including lists of cheap and free things to do for those on a tight budget!

Question #14: - When Do We Find Out Who & When We Play?
Match-ups are done throughout the middle and end of October with the official NYFC rosters submitted by the teams. We send out tentative pairings that give you the state where the teams are from and a general description of the type of teams who will be in your bracket in early November, a few weeks prior to the event.

As far as when you play, this is unfortunately only distributed in the few days prior to the competition. Teams will learn when and where they play on arrival when they pick up an official schedule during event registration. Teams traveling from around the country can sometimes maintain unforeseen travel problems forcing a late schedule change, facilities can maintain a snafu here or there, causing a needed schedule shuffle, etc. It has been our experience that, while a bit inconvenient for those who are looking to travel in for just a game or two, the vast majority of organized teams have been able to readily plan for this throughout the history of the NYFC witgh minimal inconvenience.

Question #15 - What Are the Total Costs to Attend the NYFC?
The NYFC event maintains a $200 Team Registration Fee if the team is registered with SNI no later than September 30th (that means RECEIVED by SNI no later than the 30th!). Football teams registering after this date will pay an additional $100 late fee, making their registration fee $300.

This Registration Fee, along with the Team Package Plan fees, pay for all of the costs associated with the event including: team package items (shirts, medallions, patches, team photos), fields, referees, trophies, staffing, etc. These costs to attend are outlined within the Official NYFC Invitation with even greater details found on the "Costs of the Central NYFC" webpage. This cost presents a great value as we offer so much for the attending coaches, players and parents!

The only other costs to attend the event are controlled by YOU! Travel costs, hotel and/or camping costs, food and any entertainment costs you plan to do will be up to you as well. YOU HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OF THESE COSTS, making a trip to the National Youth Football Championships affordable on almost any budget.

Question #16 - We Have Some Really Good Players - Does the NYFC Have Anything Special For Them?
This is a HUGE CHANGE for the NYFC in recent years. The NYFC has teams of all sizes, shapes and talent levels. The event has more than it's share of players that have gone onto high school, college, and even PROFESSION SUCCESS. Recently, the competition to se seen by some of the best schools in the country in both the high school and college level have come to the NYFC. Therefore, for your very best players, especially in the 12 year old divisions and higher, the NYFC has developed several partnerships with programs that can help you get these players the maximum exposure to those who can help....high school and college coaches, scouts, recruiters, and other who love the game of football and are always looking for players who can help their program. These people can help you to help your child's dream of an football future come true to the maximum of their athgletic abilities. Please take a moment to look through our Official Supporters page to see how these groups can help you!

YOU HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OF THESE COSTS, making a trip to the National Youth Football Championships affordable on almost any budget.

Question #17 - We Want to Fly Into Town, Do We Really Need Ground Transport in Austin?
YES, you will ABSOLUTELY need your own vehicle(s)! The NYFC is a huge event that uses between 4-5 different field locations placed throughout the city. Fields can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes from your hotel. Along with this, teams need to EAT, do some sightseeing, go to activities, get to the Event Registration, as well get to the closing awards, and then back to the airport. Trying to do this without ground transportation at your disposal would turn a fun vacation into a nightmare faster than anything else I can imagine.

Question #18 - What Determines Who Gets into the NYFC and Who Does Not?
Any team currently playing youth football can receive an invite to attend. The official invitation is mailed to over 2,000 youth football leagues throughout North, Central and South America. We annually mail a total of roughly 3,000 invitations to teams around the world but more importantly, we post the official invitation RIGHT HERE on the NYFC website! Teams who register to attend are screeened immediately upon entry to ensure they have credible backgrounds, solid coaching and good references from their league officials and/or peer coaches in their league. From these entries, we generally take the first 80 or so teams that enter with solid credientials and place them into the competition field. in the many age & weight classifications used at the NYFC.

As this is a National tournament, we try to ensure teams are accepted from across the United States, therefore in some cases, we are forced to limit the ability of some leagues to send too many teams. However, regardless of where you are from, if your team is in good league standing and begins their organization early, there is a very good chance that your football team and/or cheer squad can be a part of the upcoming NYFC event. We encourage all football organizations looking to end their season of hard work much like the college bowl teams do with a warm weather Winter football competition, please look at making your group a part of the National Youth Football Championships.

Question #19 - We Have Multiple Teams, Can I Request My Teams All Play at the Same Field?
SNI cannot guarantee this schedule configuration. However, on the first day of the event, we have generally had good luck playing most every orgabization bringing multiple teams back to back at the same or very nearby fields! When and where they play their second game is more dictated by how they do in game #1 and we have less control over this.

NYFC

Question #20 - Does the NYFC Have a Minimum Play Rule?
No, this and most other related decisions are made by the Head Coach. The NYFC does not nursemaid teams or meddle into the coaches discretion in this area regarding who plays and who does not. Of course, it is strongly encouraged that all players who are not on some form of disciplinary action get "adequate" playing time during the two games of the NYFC. Again, how much that is remains a coaches decision.

Question #21 - Why are the Dates of the Central NYFC Slightly Different than the Eastern & Western Divisions?
GREAT QUESTION! The NYFC Central Division is held one day later as this is something the teams unanimously requested and we listened! The event does tend to be very Texas-centric and having the games played a day later than the standard allows most teams to get back home Sunday Night and sleep in their own beds!

Question #22 - We're Pretty Sure We Want to Attend the NYFC Central...What's the First Step?
That's easy....download the NYFC Invitation from the website and register on-line through the amazing NYFC Myteam website. You can also contact Sports Network if you still have any questions! We also recommend teams find other groups in your area that have attended the NYFC previously and ask them for their unbiased opinions. We are sure after you look around, you will see why so many teams annually work to make themselves a part of this great football weekend.

THE NYFC IS NOT FOR EVERY GROUP. IF YOU DON'T HAVE STRONG SUPPORT, CLEAN FOOTBALL PLAYERS, & SOLID COACHING, THIS EVENT IS LIKELY NOT FOR YOU! Coming to the NYFC will take hard work most likely...but it will also likely be the most rewarding and satisfying things you will ever be a part of.
