Should I sign up for CCYFL or GCYFL? What is the difference?
Because our organization is so large, we are divided into 2 different leagues. The WC Navy side, or CCYFL league, is an age based league and team placement is determined by your child's age before August 1st of that year.
WC Gray side, or GCYFL, is a grade based league and team placement is determined by the grade of the child for that season/year.
The two different leagues play different teams in different leagues. The Clermont County Youth Football League (CCYFL) includes teams such as Batavia, Goshen, Bethel and Blanchester. The Greater Cincinnati Youth Football league includes teams such as Milford, Oak Hills, Hamilton and Mason (many of which are outside of Clermont County).
Determination of which league to choose is simply a preference based on the above factors and skill, ability and performance are equal amongst our leagues. For new athletes, registration may be staggered between the two leagues to keep numbers even.
What ages/grades can participate?
CCYFL starts at age 5 and goes to age 12. GCYFL starts in kindergarten and goes to 6th grade.
