South Portland Youth Football

Welcome to SPYF Registration!

South Portland Youth Football (SPYF) is a non-profit booster group for the South Portland youth, middle school and high school football teams. The SPYF provides organizational services, raises funds, and oversees all aspects of the program. The SPYF works closely with, but is not a part of South Portland, Maine Recreation Department and the South Portland schools.

We are an organization of dedicated volunteers and have prided ourselves on keeping the cost of each participant's fee to one of the lowest in the Maine Youth Football League, and we have accomplished this through community donations, concessions, raffles and registration fees. SPYF receives no financial assistance from the City of South Portland.

This new page represents our careful plunge into a new model of efficiency - online registration and migrating to fully online administration. We appreciate the fact you will need to learn a few new online "plays", but we believe you will like the result.

Please register before June 1, 2016, to avoid a $20 late registration fee!

Call 207-357-6017 for assistance!

[Mar 26 2014]   Code of Conduct

THE CODE OF CONDUCT

Players, coaches, spectators and parents are to conduct themselves in a manner that "Honors the Game" and demonstrates respect to other players, coaches, officials and spectators. In becoming a member of the football community an individual assumes certain obligations and responsibilities to the game of football and its participants.

The essential elements in this "Code of Conduct" are HONESTY and INTEGRITY. Those who conduct themselves in a manner that reflects these elements will bring credit to the sport of football, themselves, their team and their organization. It is only through such conduct that our sport can earn and maintain a positive image and make its full contribution to youth sports in the United States and around the world.

SPYF supports the following behaviors for those participating or involved in any way with SPYF in general:

• The essential elements of the "Code of Conduct" must be adhered to.

• Sportsmanship and teaching the concepts of fair play are essential to the game and must be taught and developed both at home and on the field during practices and games.

• The emphasis on winning should never be placed above the value of good sportsmanship, the concepts of fair play, or the skills of the game.

• Derogatory comments are unacceptable. Use positive reinforcement with players and adults alike. It should be remembered that criticism once made can never be retracted.

• The safety and welfare of the players are of primary importance.

• Coaches must always be aware of the tremendous influence they have on their players. They are to strive to be positive role models in dealing with young people, as well as with adults.

• Officials are expected to conduct themselves as professionals and in a manner that demonstrates courtesy and fairness to all parties, while exercising their authority on the field.

• Adults involved with the game must never permit anyone to openly or maliciously criticize, badger, harass, or threaten an official.

• Knowledge of the Rules of Football must be respected and adhered to by all who participate in the game of lacrosse, both in the letter and the spirit of the game. Attempts to manipulate rules in an effort to take unfair advantage of an opponent, or to teach deliberate unsportsmanlike conduct, is considered unacceptable conduct.

• Eligibility requirements, such as age and previous level of participation, must be followed. They have been established to encourage and maximize participation, as well as promote safety.
