The Dalles — 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 up for flag play which is schedules to start up in late August.

Costs for early bird registration are $85 for the tackle season and $75 for a sibling in the same family.

Those registration fees remain intact until May 5, and then they increase to $105 for each athlete.

In flag football, the costs are set at $40 and will reamin the same throughout the process.

There may be another day of registration at a later date, but parents will have up until July 31 to sign their children up for fall action.

At the signup session in The Dalles, all parents need to furnish a birth certificate along with 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.

If parents have other ideas, administrators welcome input.

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.
