PWYFA is a member of the Hill Country Youth Football League (HCYFL)...
HCYFL is a grade first league that promotes loyalty to school districts. HCYFL develops kids in the sound fundamentals of football in an environment that creates pride in each associations hometown team. There are 2 Divisions in HCYFL. UIL enrollment numbers are used to determine which division each association will compete in. HCYFL is the Premier Youth Football League in the Texas Hill Country, currently composed of 20 organizations. HCYFL adheres to UIL rank order to classify Division I and Division II.

HCYFL is composed entirely of associations that adhere to school feeder systems. HCYFL believes in developing a local football community and culture that the children will carry on when they enter the school that they play for. HCYFL is a competitive league, however, development of young players always comes first. HCYFL believes that there should be a perfect balance and a natural progression that brings children from the fundamentals of football to full UIL rules as they move up through the divisions.

HCYFL believes that children of all sizes should be able to play football. HCYFL is an unlimited weight league, however, HCYFL has placed reasonable restrictions on the backfield/ball carrying positions. Wise balance is the thread throughout the league.

HCYFL believes that 8 to 9 games is an appropriate length of a tackle season for youth football players. Therefore a typical season consists of 7 regular season games, a semi final play off game or a bowl game to give a team 8 games. Teams that advance from the semi finals get a 9th game for championships. This is the right amount of tackle football to give the players a great experience and at the same time leave them hungry for more when the season is completed.

Why do we have to register so early?
The main reason for this is so we can get an accurate headcount for the upcoming season, mostly for equipment and volunteer planning needs. Football and Cheer is an expensive sport and we need to make sure that our players have the best and safest equipment available. To insure this, we need to know how many kids we have signed up to determine how many new helmets we need, etc. Helmets are replaced or reconditioned by the manufacturer every year which entails x-raying them to determine if there are any micro cracks and cleaning/replacing the inside padding. This process is expensive but necessary for the safety of our players.


What are the PWYFA Boundaries?
Children that attend all elementary schools in Comal ISD Pieper High school feeder pattern are eligible to play and cheer for PWYFA.  These schools include Indian Springs Elementary, Kinder Ranch Elementary, Specht Elementary, Timberwood Park Elementary and Pieper Ranch Middle School.  Students who want to play or cheer for PWYFA but who do not attend a Comal ISD school may also be able to participate on a case by case basis. If you have any questions, please contact a member of the Board of Directors.



When are practices?

Cheer may have an additional practice closer to end of season performance (November). 
Practice officially starts in July with 10 hours of conditioning that is mandated by the State of Texas. After conditioning, practices are normally 3 days a week until school starts then 2 days a week after that. The practice dates and times will vary depending on the head coach.  Practices are held at a variety of locations in the lower Comal ISD zone, Neighborhood Parks, and Bulverde Community Park.

We play our games on Saturdays. There will be a league wide scrimmage/roster certification held in mid August.  The first game of the season is scheduled for late August - October.  Semi-finals, bowl games, and championship games are scheduled for last two weeks in October.  The season concludes late October and closes with end of season party in November
