What does a Varsity/JV Program mean?         
The IYFL League is set up to offer football and cheerleading to thousands of children in the PA and DE area. The league offers football play at the Varsity Level (more skilled players) and the Junior Varsity Level (skilled and developmental level).  Varsity teams will have the opportunity to qualify for playoff spots; JV teams will often have post season games that are non-playoff based. **Note: We are not able to accommodate requests to place players on teams for reasons such as carpooling, friends/family members or coaching preference. Players are placed according to skills assessment. 

Games & Schedules           
Schedules are done by the IYFL.  CKR will distribute once available, usually mid-late August.  Games will start the last weekend in August.  This is different from previous years. There will be a total of 8 regular season games.  There could be 2-4 more games if teams make Playoffs & Championships.
