Certification is the process in which the league (TYFA) verifies all players to ensure they are the correct age and playing with the correct age groups. It is MANDATORY that all players be in attendance in order to get certified to play in TYFA. In order for a child to participate in TYFA events, they must have a profile in the TYFA web application.
A WEEK BEFORE CERTIFICATION
It is the Guardian’s responsibility to complete several processes to help prepare their child for TYFA’s certification. Parents, you will receive a verification email from TYFA a week before our certification day once your child’s info has been uploaded into the TYFA Online Certification System. Once you have received the email you will need to verify the information contained in the email, complete your child’s profile and sign the consent form. If this is not done, your child will not be allowed to play. So please check your email, so that you do not miss the email from the TYFA. If you have not received the email a week before our certification day, please let your head coach or team mom know ASAP. Please read the instructions listed below to help you complete the required processes.
On the day of certification, we will require the following to be brought with your child:
- The Original State issued Birth Certificate (not the one with the baby feet on it). If you do not have the BC, you can use one of the alternate proof of birth documents listed below.
- Copy of one of the report cards from the 2015/2016 school year (this only applies to Tykes age group thru Seniors. Flag players do not have to show that document.)
- $20.00 Cash for league certification fee
If you do not have the Original Birth Certificate, you can use one of the following approved alternate proof of birth documents:
- Valid Passport
- Valid Military ID card
- Valid State issued ID card
