This "repayment" is in addition to the required number of workers board shifts per team already mandated per child per season.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Is the information I provide kept confidential? Yes, only the Executive Board will view all the information supplied. (League President, Vice President, Registration Director, Secretary, and Treasurer). The information is not shared with others.
  2. Is there a limit on the number of children in my family that I can request a waiver for? Yes. PMYFCL limits the number of waivers provided to any one family to two participants in football and/or cheerleading.
  3. If I requested and or was granted a waiver this year, is my family eligible for waivers in the future? If you have received a waiver in the past or present, it does not prevent or guarantee future waiver requests. The circumstances regarding financial hardships, etc., noted in the request are evaluated with every application, and re-evaluated if it is a repeated request. The waiver eligibility requirements still must be satisfied in all cases.
