Financial Assistance

Financial difficulties will never prevent any child from participating in our football or cheerleading programs. Please contact us in confidence at info@hyackfootball.com to discuss the financial assistance options available to ensure that every child gets an opportunity to participate. Financial assistance is available to qualified applicants from KidSport New West, Jumpstart and A4K.

Volunteer Participation

Our football club relies completely on parent/guardian and family participation in order to realize a fun and successful season. It is an expectation of registration that each players parent/guardian(s) and/or family will assist in some capacity during the season by volunteering for duties at games or community events.  There are many areas where volunteers are needed: throughout the football season there is a need for coaches, team managers, equipment managers, first-aiders (aka. "trainers"), and then during the games there is a need for people to help with sideline duties, concessions, videography, field setup and other operational tasks. Previous experience in any of these areas is not necessary. More involvement by the entire Hyacks Football family leads to a high quality, fun experience for all involved - especially for the kids.

Available Roster Spots

RCHFC feels it can provide the best play time and development for your kids by basing the number of teams we will support on the coaching staff we have available. This is especially true at the Atom, Peewee and JB level. All players who have provided required paperwork & registration fees (paid in full) will be issued equipment and can come out to practice. Players on the wait-list will be notified by the first practice. Should there not be sufficient coaches (or players) to support additional teams.  Player participation is decided on a first come first serve basis based on registration and payment date.

Divisions

All community football divisions are set by age group only. Players must participate in the age group per their birth year. Players cannot play up or down an age group. This is a league (VMFL - www.vmfl.ca) policy that all member clubs, including the RCHFC, must abide by.

Registrations are deemed complete only once the registration payment has been received. Should team rosters fill up, additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list. 

Residency

Participants from all Lower Mainland communities are welcome to register with our club. There are no league restrictions that deny families from registering their children in a club outside their city or municipality. If the number of registrants exceeds the roster limits of our club's teams, priority will be given to New Westminster residents, and then by order of when the registrations have been received. As such, you may be asked to provide some proof of residency if you live in New Westminster.
