If we are unable to play, we will issue full refunds with the following exceptions:

If practices have begun, the cost of our secondary insurance $12.00 will be subtracted from the refund amount.

Uniforms will not be ordered until we are certain we can play.

If we are released to play, uniforms will likely be late to arrive due to the delay.

This is the only way we can offer any amount of refund in the event it turns out to be necessary.

Once uniforms have been ordered and games have begun, no refunds will be issued.

East Ridge Parks and Recreation is a member of the Scenic City Youth Football League. The SCYFL football program is open to players 5 to 12 years old. The age group determination has a cut-off date of April 30 of the current year.  Participants may play up a division, but may not play down.

Teams are drafted in late July, and practices begin August 1. The season begins with a Jamboree during the final week of August and ends with a Super Bowl played at Finley Stadium (Home of the Chattanooga Mocs) in mid-November. The East Ridge SCYFL teams play home games at Raymond James Stadium and Earl Shanks Field. 

The East Ridge teams have a schedule of 8 to10 games against teams from Hamilton, Bradley and Rhea County’s in Tennessee and Walker and Catoosa County’s in Georgia. Games are scheduled for every Saturday during the season at various locations. In case of bad weather, postponed games are often moved to weeknights or Sunday afternoons. The league is divided between North and South Divisions and travel is limited as much as possible. Each team should expect to have an equal number of home and away games.
