Where are games played?
Games are played at various locations throughout San Antonio and surrounding cities. Some travel may be required, but should be limited.
Do you have fundraisers?
In an effort to keep registration costs as low as possible for parents and families and since it does not cover all expenses, we do have only one fundraiser per season.† The fundraiser will be reasonable and should not be overbearing, but needless to say is required.
In what weather conditions do we practice and play?
Practice and games will only be cancelled when weather conditions make travel dangerous. We will practice and play in the rain unless there is lightning within 5 miles.
How much playing time will my child get?
There is no mandatory play rule in TYFA as TYFA is a highly competitive youth league.† That being said, the Jr. Hornet organization has placed itís own requirement to play all players at least 4 live ball situations provided the player has not missed, been late to or left early from practice once within the last two weeks of the current game and has participated in all required drills and activities. We trust our coaches to be fair and just, but also encourage competitive play as TYFA is a highly competitive league so being late or missing practice is detrimental to the overall effort of the team.
Do you have a limit on the number of players on a team?
†††††††††††† Yes, we do limit the size of our teams to help ensure players receive adequate playing time.
