In order to better serve our players, coaches and fans, the league has made several changes. 3/4 and 5/6 grade leagues will play a 6 game schedule. For those divisions, we have moved the season start back a few weeks from our normal dates for 3/4 and 5/6 leagues. 3/4 and 5/6 practice will start on Tuesday, Sept. 4th. 7th grade will start practice on August 15th due to scheduling within the Central Iowa Metro Football league.
The league has alo instituted practice limits. Divisions will be limited to two nights of practice per week after games start. Prior to games beginning, teams may practice three times per week.
As in the past. SEPYTFL will focus on skill and fundamental building in a fun and educational manner. Our league has always been progressive and innovative and this season will continue that tradition. By focusing on the fundamentals of the game during practice our players learn how to play football the right way.
Depending on final numbers we may move to a complete 8-man football league. We tried this in the 3/4 league last season and the results were fantastic. Having teams of smaller size allows our coaches to focus on each player on a more individual level. It also allows us to have more teams so our players aren't facing teams more than twice a season. If numbers allow the league reserves the right to return to 11 man football
