HK Football Camp

HKYFA encourages all age appropriate kids to register for the HK Football Camp which is run by HK High School coaches. Several of the coaches were former HK Youth coaches and are very involved in our program.  Go to the HK Rec website to register. 

 

HK Football Camp

This non-contact camp is designed to improve the athlete's fundamental skills and basic techniques of the game of football. The goal is to heighten the interest of young people and teach them the proper etiquette involved in the game. Each athlete will have the opportunity to learn how to play the different positions in the game of football. The coaches are all certified and coach at the High School level. Kids will be separated by age group.

 

Please bring cleats, sneakers (if it is raining), water, and wear proper attire.

2015 Football & Cheer Registration & FAQs

Hello HKYFA Families,

 

It’s hard to believe that the school year is about to end. This means that the 2015 Football and Cheer season is just around the corner! We are very excited about the upcoming season but the registration period is about to close.  Please visit our website at www.hkcougars.com to register your football and cheerleader. We have to declare our teams by June 15th so please secure your spot now!

 

All football and cheerleaders will need a current physical form from 2015. This can be the NCFL medical form or your blue school forms. All new players will need a copy of their birth certificate for us to keep on file. Both of these must be turned in before your child can begin practice on August 3rd. Forms and registration fees can be mailed to HKYFA P.O. Box  72 Higganum, CT 06441

HKYFA's New League

Hello Cougar Families!

I hope you are doing well with this winter that will never end!  While a lot of us are starting to get into spring sports your board has been busy at work getting ready for the 2015 Football & Cheer season.  We are excited to announce that HKYFA has now become a part of the Northern Connecticut Football League (NCFL)!  After a lot of discussion from the board we unanimously decided this move was best for our league.  Our High School coaching staff fully supports this move as well.

Here is a link to the NCFL website.

We did this for three major reasons: Safety, competitiveness and being able to field a team for all squads.

The NCFL is made up of 14 teams split into a Northern and Southern conference.  Most of the 14 towns are similar in size to HK and we feel this will level the competitiveness.

Northern Conference

Ellington Roadrunners (Class M, population 15,786)

Enfield Ramblers (Class S, population 44,748)

Granby Bears (Class S, population 11,323)

South Windsor Panthers (Class L, population 25,846)

Stafford Bulldogs (Class S, population 11,928)

Tolland Eagles (Class S, population 14,915)

WPTP Hawks (Class S, population 30,914)

Southern Conference

Colchester Cougars (Class M, population 16,210)

Coventry Panthers (Class M, population 12,411)

Cromwell Lions (Class S, population 14,178)

Haddam-Killingworth Cougars (Class S, population 14,853)

Portland Panthers (Class S, population 22,368)

RHAM Rams  (Class L, population 19,292)

Suffield Jets (Class L, population 33,573)

HKYFA implemented USA Football Heads Up program prior to the start of last season and we are happy to report that NCFL has implemented this program as well!  Heads Up has proven to help reduce injuries by the methods taught.  All of our coaches are certified annually and continuously take the training classes.

Last season, and several prior, we struggled to field an A team.  If it wasn’t for a few boys who volunteered to move up and play, we likely would not have been able to field a team.  Many of these boys & girls have been with the program since the start 6 years ago and we want them to be able to continue to play until they get into high school.  The NCFL has slightly different age requirements per squad which will allow us to field teams much easier than in the past.  Kids will be playing on age appropriate teams with no over lighter rules. Please also realize that you cannot compare our squads from past seasons to the NCFL squads.  They are different and all of the 14 towns involved are on an equal competitive playing field.

A - Squad (12-13): Must be at least eleven (11) years of age and cannot turn fourteen (14) years of age before July 1 of the playing year. High school students are prohibited from playing in the NCFL.  175 pound max weight (176-185 limited to non-skill position).

B - Squad (10-11): Must be at least nine (9) years of age and cannot turn twelve (12) years of age on or before July 1 of the playing year. 145 pound max weight.

C - Squad (8-9): Must be at least seven (7) years of age and cannot turn ten (10) years of age on or before July 1 of the playing year. 120 pound max weight.

D-Squad (6-7): Must be at least 6 years of age and cannot turn eight (8) years of age on or before July 1 of the playing year. 105 pound max weight.

There are many other differences in the rules as compared to past seasons that are spelled out in the NCFL bylaws.  Feel free to peruse them or please ask myself or any board member any questions you may have.  We will also be putting together a summary of changes and posting them to the website soon.

Within the next few weeks 2015 registration will be opening.  We will be sending out notices for the dates, both online and in person, where we will be also able to answer any additional questions you may have. We are all very excited to join the Northern Connecticut Football League and look forward to a fresh start in our 2015 season.

Thank you!

Mike LaRosa

HKYFA President
