Dearborn Youth Football
||The Dearborn Youth Football Association is a parent-run
organization which relies upon parents of participants to
fulfill the needs of the organization.
Members of the DYFA Board of Directors, elected by the
general membership for two or three-year terms, manage the
organization, establish policies and procedures, and conduct
most of the day-to-day business of the DYFA.
However, the organization can not operate successfully
without the active participation of parents. Consequently,
the DYFA Board of Directors has mandated that parents
provide their services to the organization for two games
each season for every child they have in the DYFA program.
The Board of Directors understands that in today’s society,
everyone’s time is valuable and in demand. However, since
we, as parents, expect our children to dedicate their time
and effort to the program, it’s only fair that we, as
parents, make a similar commitment.
Parents have the initial choice concerning when to provide
their Parent Service Time and in what particular capacity.
The first opportunity to sign up for Parent Service Time
will be at the Mandatory Parents’ Meetings August 9 and 10
at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center and we
encourage you to do so. Sign up is on a first-come,
first-served basis. Sign up opportunities will also be
available during the pre-season at the team trailers at both
Hemlock and Ford Field.
If you have not signed up for your Parent Service Time by
Thursday, September 5, our Volunteer Coordinator will assign
you Parent Service Time at two games. Failure to fulfill
your Parent Service Time obligation will result in the
immediate forfeiture of your $100 deposit, and you will be
required to post a second $100 deposit prior to the next
We also encourage parents to become involved in the DYFA
program beyond their mandatory two games of Parent Service
Time. Opportunities abound, throughout the year, and we
welcome parents’ involvement.
