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, and Argyle.  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 (combines)  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 zone that meet all other requirements are eligible. Therefore, players must attend one of these schools:

Adkins, E.P. Rayzor, Blanton, L.A. Nelson, Hawk, McNair, Harpool or Crownover. Special circumstances apply to homeschool or private/charter students that live within the correct boundaries. 

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.

There is additionally an age restriction for each grade.  Eligibility is determined based upon the players age as of September 1 of the playing year.
