Breaking News 2/5/14: Middlesex Colts Join the Metropolitan Youth Football and Cheerleading League
The executive board of the Middlesex Colts voted unanimously to join the Metropolitan Youth Football League for the upcoming 2014 season. A team spokesman stated that there were several reasons why the Colts board decided to leave PYFCO but the main reasons for leaving were safety and closer and more familiar competition.
The team spokesman said “ We always put the children’s safety first. We felt that the Metro League had two distinct advantages as far as safety was concerned. The first advantage was that the Metro League has an 8 game season as compared to PYFCO’s 10 game season. We felt we needed to limit the exposure of the children to contact - 10 games was just too much.” The second safety aspect we identified was that the Metro League does not allow 6-7 year olds to play tackle football. Players that are 6-7 years old must play flag football in the Metro league. When the child turns 8 he/she can play tackle football. We also will play more familiar competition and the competition is closer geographically. The Colts will play in the Eastern division which will be comprised of the Colts, West Point and James City who recently moved to Metro, Charles City, New Kent and King William. We felt that the parents would like less travel time."
New to Colts families this year is the MYFL requirement that every child must have a DMV photo id to be eligible to play. The Colts board encourages parents whose children want to play this fall to go ahead and get these id’s done. Registration for the 2014 Colts season will be available in May.
