FAQ's

Where will the games be played?

Game locations will vary depending on who is fielding teams in each respective grade.  Either way we will have approximately 4 home games (Guyer High School) and 4 away games.  Wildcats Youth Sports is part of the North Texas Football League (NTFL).  This organization is composed of leagues from Southlake, Coppell, Grapevine, Colleyville, Trophy Club, Roanoke, Justin.  All of these leagues play their games predominantly at their respective high school or middle school fields. 

Is this a "Select" Program?

No, however, it is competitive.  All kids will play and there will only be tryouts when we are required to have two teams at the same grade level. The tryouts would then be used to ensure an equal and fair team building (draft) process.

What are the player eligibility requirements?

All eligibility requirements are subject to the rules, restrictions, and guidelines of the league that the Wildcats partner with.  

All children that live within the Guyer High School district that meet all other requirements are eligible. Therefore, players must attend one of these schools:

Wildcats Youth Sports is a "grade pure" association having a team for each tackle age group.  Grades 2-6.  For flag football, we will have mixed teams of 1st graders and below.
