Hello All Panther Families,

Hopefully by now all parents have received your welcome letters and current team assignments. We are now at that time of year that all Panther’s love to hear “Football Time”. Below we have some very important information and dates for the Start of this year’s Panther Football season. Look forward to seeing all the kids and families come out and enjoy some great team sports with the usual Panther Fan energy. First a big thanks to all the kids who have signed up and to the Parent’s for keeping the CSYFA strong. We appreciate all the coaches/assistant coaches who are volunteering their time to make sure all the kids play the game safe, and also bring the fun that keeps this team sport alive.

Now on to the dates.


VERY IMPORTANT TO ATTEND THIS YEAR***Next Sunday (July 21) Equipment Handout at Rockin’ Jump (Sponsor) Carol Steam from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Address is 485 Mission Street. During this event, every registered 2019 football player will be able to jump for FREE for 1 hour. Non-registered siblings get a 50% discount off their jump fee so they can join the fun.

On this day, your TACKLE/FLAG football player(s) will receive the necessary equipment and GET FITTED FOR THER JERSEY for their use during the 2019 season. Along with equipment, we will be issuing our MANDATORY $100 fundraiser per player “Charity Mania” game cards, to all CSYFA registrants.

In order for your player to receive their equipment and Charity Mania game cards, at Equipment Handout, CSYFA requires (2) separate checks for the following:

1. A TACKLE equipment deposit check in the amount of $150, made payable to “CSYFA”, per player. This check will not be cashed as long as the equipment is returned to the organization in the same condition it was received.

NOTE: A deposit check is NOT required for Flag.

2. A separate check, in the amount $100, made payable to “CSYFA”, to cover your (5) Charity Mania game cards per player. As you sell your 5 tickets, you will then keep the money to recoup your $100.

• Please have checks already filled out to “CSYFA”. *

CSYFA will NOT issue equipment and/or Charity Mania game cards to anyone that has an outstanding balance on their 2019 registration and/or if the above-mentioned (2) checks are not received at this July 21st event. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

There are other items that you must purchase for your player before the season start. Those items are as follows: black football pants, compression shirt/rib guard, football cleats, cup and mouth guard. This information is in Documents Section on the CSYFA website under FAQ.
CSYFA requires a birth certificate from ANY Flag or Tackle player that is NEW to CSYFA or that has played in CSYFA in the past, but did NOT play football in the 2018 season.

We are requesting that you turn in a COPY of your player’s birth certificate to Chris Sokolowski, at Equipment Handout.

Hello Panther Fans,

Just sending this reminder that registration is still open until June 30 so for those of you who still need to register please go to www.csyfa.com to complete your registration. We continue to see great community support for the CSYFA program and look forward to seeing as many kids as possible join.

Again, please mark this date down, Sunday July 21, as it will be most important to attend this year’s equipment handout. We have changed our jersey supplier and will be having them fitted with shoulder pads on at equipment handout. We are changing to local supplier that will allow us to have our jerseys before the first game of season. These new jerseys will be name plated at time of creation. It is our hopes that if this jersey process sees positive feedback this year we could be able to provide 2 sided (home and away colors) in next year’s jersey. CSYFA is doing our best to be as cost efficient as possible with this process. For those first 20 kids who registered this year we will still have an earlier date to do your equipment handout. For those who cannot make equipment handout please look to contact CSYFA in July as early as possible so we can make arrangements to at least get a jersey fitting in prior to actual equipment handout.

We would like to remind all about the sponsorship registration cost reduction opportunity, we are actively looking for sponsors in the CSYFA and for those families who are looking for a way to get a discounted entry fee please visit the CSYFA website and check out the “SPONSORSHIP NEW link to see how to reduce your costs.

Please look for future emails concerning upcoming CSYFA dates about events.

Once again, we are looking forward to a great 2019 season.

Go Panthers!

Hello Panther Families,

Hope everyone has had a great spring. CSYFA is actively preparing for the upcoming season. We are excited for all the kids, coaches, and parents who help make this community football program positive.

First off, please note, registration is open until June 30. For those of you who still would like to register, please go to www.csyfa.com to complete your registration. We have seen a good amount of registration but would always love to see more kids take advantage of this great sport of football.

Secondly, please mark this date down—Sunday, July 21. It is extremely important to attend this year’s equipment handout. We have changed our jersey supplier, and will be having them fitted (with shoulder pads on) at equipment handout. We are changing to local supplier that will allow us to have our jerseys before the first game of season. These new jerseys will be name plated at time of creation. It is our hope, that if this jersey process sees positive feedback this year, we would be able to provide a reversible (2 sided home and away colors) jersey for next year. CSYFA is doing our best to be as cost efficient as possible with this process. For those first 20 kids who registered this year we will still have an earlier date to do your equipment handout. For those who cannot make equipment handout please look to contact CSYFA in July as early as possible so we can make arrangements to at least get a jersey fitting in prior to actual equipment handout.

The third item we would like to address is sponsorship. We are actively looking for sponsors in the CSYFA. For those families who are looking for a way to get a discounted entry fee, please visit the CSYFA website and check out the “SPONSORSHIP NEW link (as shown below) to see how to reduce your costs.

We would like to thank the Carol Stream Community. The fundraising event we held at the local Jewel called “Shake the Can”, resulted in over US$900.00 which will allow CSYFA to purchase new football equipment for the program. We were also approved by USA Football for a Riddell Equipment grant that will allow us some further equipment to purchase.

Lastly, CSYFA would like to thank Glenbard North High School Football Head Coach Wilkins, his Assistants, and the GBN Football players for their continued support of CSYFA football and their many skills clinics they have hosted these last few months for our boys.

Please look for future emails concerning upcoming CSYFA dates about events.

Once again, we are looking forward to a great 2019 season.

Go Panthers!

Panther Families,

Hope everyone of you had a great holiday weekend. CSYFA is very excited about the upcoming year as we get closer to Football season. We appreciate all those Panther Families that took advantage of the early registration rates prior to the April 15 date. Here are some upcoming dates:

We will have another chance for families to take advantage of registering for football at early registration rates (US$200.00 for Flag and US$300.00 for Tackle) as on CSYFA 2019 Sponsor Rockin Jump will be hosting a Registration Party on Friday May 3, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm. For those kids who register May 3 or are registered will get to jump for 1 hour FREE. If the kids want to jump more than 1 hour they are offering US$8.00 for an extra 30 minutes or US$10.00 for Unlimited jump until they close. If the kids who have registered want their siblings to jump they can jump for US$10.00 for 1 hour. Rockin Jump socks will be sold to all those that enter for US$2.00 per pair.

As we are a non-for-profit organization and are trying our best to keep registration rates at their current levels even though our costs for everything (practice lights, fields, jerseys, insurance, etc.) keep increasing we are looking not only for more sponsors this year but more ways to raise money for the organization. We are going to be looking for all Panther players to participate in a “Shake the Can” fundraiser at Carol Stream Jewel on Saturday May 11th from 10am – 2pm. We will be working with all the CSYFA coaches to have a team come to Jewel for 45 minutes to help raise money for CSYFA. Hopefully we can see some great participation from all the kids.

CSYFA is actively planning more fundraising events and are still looking for Sponsorship. If anyone needs any information about CSYFA sponsorship please visit www.csyfa.com.

Lastly our next monthly CSYFA Board Meeting will be held on Monday May 13 at 7pm at Simkus Rec Center. These meetings are open to all Panther Families.

Hope to see all the kids and Panther families at the upcoming events.
