East Bay Youth Football & Cheer Association (EBYFC):
The EBYFC consists of teams from 10 other area cities. The EBYFC sets the rules and qualifications for participation in all Conference activities.
*NEW: We have formed a partnership with the San Jose Police Athletic League (SJPAL) so we will be adding a few games with new teams from around the South Bay! These will be non-conference games that give our teams a chance to play against some of the best teams in the Bay Area.
Each participating city fields 4 football teams and cheer squads. All Divisions are based on the age of the player as of August 1 of the current season. You will register your son or daughter based on their age and weight (for football).
*NEW: X-Men Rules. Adopting the X-Men rules allows more athletes to play youth football. In previous years, many young athletes had to sit out due to the weight limits. The rule are as follows:
A maximum of 5 X-Men can be on the field at the same time.
X-Men must play tackle to tackle (they may not be put into position to advance the ball at any time).
Pre-Season: must present an "X" behind their helmets at the time of weigh-ins.
Defense: may play on the end of the defensive line if they are in a down position no wider than the outside shoulder of the tackle or tight end they are lined up on.
Any interception or fumble recovery by an X-Men will result in a dead ball at the spot of the turnover.
