Bearcub sign-ups slated for May 20-21

GRAFTON—Grafton Youth Football and Cheer will be hosting sign-ups for the 2022 season later this month. 

Sign-ups will be held on Friday, May 20 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and on Saturday, May 21 from 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. outside of the Claire Bee Field House at Grafton High School.

Those wishing to register on one of the aforementioned dates should bring with them a copy of the child’s birth certificate, along with the necessary Mountaineer Youth Football forms which include, conference registration, medical treatment permission and amateur minor athlete waiver and release of liability forms. 

In addition, each player must have a medical release form, or sports physical, completed and turned in prior to the first practice, or the child will be unable to participate. 

All of the necessary paperwork can be found by visiting  and clicking on “league forms” at the top of the page. 

The programs offers three age groups for both tackle football teams and cheerleading squads, with the Mighty Mites being opened to six and seven year olds, while the Pee Wee team is geared for participants ages eight and nine and Midgets consist of 10 and 11 year olds. 

Exceptions to the age divisions apply for a ten-year-old wishing to play Pee Wee. He or she  must be under 90 pounds to be eligible, and a 12-year-old may play for Midgets if they’re under 135 pounds. 

Ages for eligibility are as of August 1, 2022. 

Registration fees are $85 for each football player and $60 for each cheerleader. This fee includes shorts and a t-shirt for each participant. Cash or checks made payable to TCYFC will be accepted for payment.
