Parent Service

The Dearborn Youth Football Association is a parent-run organization which relies upon parents of participants to fulfill the needs of the organization.
Members of the DYFA Board of Directors, elected by the general membership for two-year terms, manage the organization, establish policies and procedures, and conduct most of the day-to-day business of the DYFA.
However, the organization can not operate successfully without the active participation of parents. Consequently, the DYFA Board of Directors has mandated that parents provide their services to the organization for two games each season for every child they have in the DYFA program.

The Board of Directors understands that in today’s society, everyone’s time is valuable and in demand. However, since we, as parents, expect our children to dedicate their time and effort to the program, it’s only fair that we, as parents, make a similar commitment.
Parents have the initial choice concerning when to provide their Parent Service Time and in what particular capacity. The first opportunity to sign up for Parent Service Time will be at the Mandatory Parents’ Meetings July 30th at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center and we encourage you to do so. Sign up is on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up opportunities will also be available during the pre-season at Hemlock.

If you have not signed up for your Parent Service Time by Thursday, September 5, our Volunteer Coordinator will assign you Parent Service Time at two games. Failure to fulfill your Parent Service Time obligation will result in the immediate forfeiture of your $100 deposit, and you will be required to post a second $100 deposit prior to the next practice session.
We also encourage parents to become involved in the DYFA program beyond their mandatory two games of Parent Service Time. Opportunities abound, throughout the year, and we welcome parents’ involvement. 

Parents please follow the 2017 Parent Assistance Guide below for details on coaches, team moms and details on the year.
