*PLEASE NOTE: Organizing a Fall football season was never the plan for NYFO, but with the recent announcements coupled with our mission we felt it our duty to serve those who desire to play. All of the great people that have come together to make this happen are doing so on a volunteer basis and the fees charged are hard costs associated with the operations. Therefore, once you have registered and your uniform and insurance has been ordered, should you cancel for any reason, we will not be offering refunds. However, you will keep the uniform you ordered and you will remain to be insured for any NYFO activities through March 2021. Although we don't foresee it, If NYFO is forced to cancel activities by a governmental entity or reasons out of our control, players will be refunded the total amount of unused monies from registration fees that cover the expenses of games, which is $8 per game.
