FIYA 2020-2021 REGISTRATION

As of May 1, 2020

On this page, we will be updating all upcoming FIYA sports events and leagues being offered in the 2020-2021 school year. Registration will become available shortly for our Fall 2020 offerings (Please see registration opening dates and deadlines below and on our calendar to the right). If you're interested or plan on participating in any of our upcoming seasons this Fall, please be sure to first scroll down and read about our FIYA School Membership offering as well as our mandatory Coaching Certification program for ALL FIYA participating coaches.

 

As a general rule of thumb, we also encourage all incoming AND returning FIYA participants to re-read our "FAQ About FIYA Athletic Events" document and our Regulations Manual as we update both documents annually prior to each upcoming school year. If you still have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to email us at info@onfiya.org.

 

 

 FOR ALL COACHES / SCHOOLS INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN THE FALL:  

FIYA will be hosting a FREE Coaches Clinic on Saturday, August 15th at St. Jerome School's gymnasium, which will be open for registration shortly to ALL Los Angeles elementary and middle school coaches.

 

This will be a great opportunity for current coaches to enhance their skills and knowledge and prepare for our upcoming seasons - as well as a networking occasion for coaches looking for coaching opportunities and schools who are looking for coaches.

 

Sports We'll Be Emphasizing:

+ Youth Volleyball (FIYA Girls Fall Sport) 

+ Youth Flag Football (FIYA Fall Sport) 

+ Youth Cross Country (FIYA Fall Sport)

+ Youth Basketball (FIYA Winter Sport) 

 

Stay tuned for more details! 

 

 

 2020 SPORTS OPEN FOR REGISTRATION: 

All school / team registration applications for our Fall 2020 offerings as well as pre-season tournaments for Girls Volleyball and Flag Football will be found with the links to the right of this page once registration is open for that event or league. Schools are allowed to register more than one team per athletic event so that more students can participate! 

When registration officially opens, please complete and submit an application for each team you wish to register. 

 

 

 

FIYA SCHOOL MEMBERSHIP

 

 For the 2020-21 school year, we will again offer FIYA School Membership! 

Registration for FIYA Membership for the 2020-2021 School Year will be made available shortly. Once registration opens, you will need to submit an application for your school with the corresponding link that will be listed to the right of this page. 

 

 

 What is a FIYA School Membership?   

  • FIYA School Membership is a voluntary membership opportunity for all Los Angeles elementary and middle schools that participate or plan on participating in FIYA for the current school year.
  • It's our way of creating a special offer particularly for schools that participate in multiple FIYA athletic events / tournaments throughout the school year - espeically those that typically participate or plan on participating in every FIYA season (Fall, Winter, and Spring). 
  • Cost: $125 per school for the entire school year.

 

 

 What are the Benefits of Being a FIYA School Member? 

Exclusive Membership Discounts: 

FIYA Membership, among other things, entitles schools to a discounted rate when registering their teams or student-athletes for ANY and ALL FIYA-related athletic offerings. 

 

Team Rates:

FIYA Member Schools pay $495 per team versus $540 per team for FIYA league events (Includes leagues such as: Volleyball, Flag Football, Basketball, Soccer, and Futsal)

 

Individual Student-Athlete Rates: 

Similarly, FIYA Member Schools only pay $10 versus $13 per student-athlete for FIYA tournament events (Includes: Cross Country meets, Ping Pong Tournaments, Dance Competitions, and Track & Field Meets).

 

 

 NOTE: 

You only need to register for FIYA Membership if your school wants FIYA Membership benefits.

If your school does not desire FIYA Membership at this time, you may skip the FIYA membership registration. Schools that are not FIYA Members may still register for any FIYA sports leagues / tournaments that your school is interested by clicking on the appropriate links on our registration page.

 

 

 

 

FIYA COACHING CERTIFICATION

 For the 2020-21 school year, 

EVERY coach with teams competing in FIYA league events (Volleyball, Flag Football, Basketball, Futsal, Soccer) will need to complete our online coaching certification. Please continue reading below for more info and instructions. 

 

 Reminder for returning coaches: 

Certification is good for 5 years in FIYA; all coaches who successfully completed the online certification below in the previous school year are not required to do so again this season; renewal only will be necessary after their 5 years expire. 

 

 

 More About FIYA's Coaching Certification Program: 

(A)  FIYA has partnered with NAYS (National Association of Youth Sports) which offers a variety of resources and training to assist coaches of youth sports;

 

(B)  For FIYA coaches participating in our league sports, each coach must present their NAYS coaching membership card to the officials prior to each FIYA game. FIYA League Sports include: Volleyball, Flag Football, Floorball, Basketball, Soccer, and Futsal; 

 

(C)  In order to obtain a NAYS coaching membership card, each coach must (1) take the Coaching Youth sports online training; (2) one sport-specific training course; and (3) sign the NAYS Code of Ethics for Coaches (collectively the "Coaching Certification Program");

 

(D)  The instructions for the Coaching Certification Program can be found under "REGISTRATION FORMS" on our registration page.  Print out the instructions and follow the instructions when you log on to nays.org;

 

(E)  The FIYA Coaching Certification Program is good for five (5) years.  After five (5) years, a coach must retake the entire Coaching Certification Program; and

 

(F)  The cost for the Coaching Certification is FREE for 2 coaches from each team.  Or, in other words, the cost of the team registration covers the cost for 2 coaches to obtain the Coaching Certification Program.  **NOTE: If a team has more than 2 coaches, the school must cover the cost for each additional coach.  The cost is $20 for each additional coach and FIYA will invoice the school.**

 

 

 THANK YOU NAYS & COACHES! 

Special thanks to our partners at NAYS for helping make this program possible, and a big thanks also to all of our incoming and returning coaches for playing such an important role in our programs! If it weren't for your commitment, time, and effort, school sports would not be possible for your student-athletes and we do not take that lightly.
