The Dalles Youth Football League is offering chances for boys and girls to develop a love of the game for flag and tackle football from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, April 21 at Spooky’s Pizza in The Dalles.
Boys and girls in the first and second grades are welcomed to sign for flag play in August.
Costs for early bird registration are $85 for tackle and $75 for a sibling in the same family.
The fees remain in tact until May 5, and then they swell to $105 for each athlete.
In flag football, the costs are set at $40.
There may be another day of registration, but all athletes have until July 31 to sign up.
At the signup, parents need to furnish a birth certificate and a proof of insurance card.
The goal of the TDYF is to introduce young players to the game of football, assisting them with developing their athletic abilities and potential, while encouraging good sportsmanship and fun.
TDYF is a volunteer-based organization and counts on parents/guardians to assist with hosting games, running concessions, assisting with fundraising activities, and coaching teams.
Player registration dates include signups for volunteer opportunities and fundraisers.
On Aug. 7-10, TDYF is kicking off its conditioning camp for all players, as they prepare for the first day of practice on Aug. 12.
The season opening jamboree is set for Aug. 24 on Sid White Field and league games start on Sept. 7.
