Yorkville Youth Tackle Football & Cheerleading



Yorkville Youth Tackle Football and Cheerleading rely upon the hands of family volunteers to provide our athletes with a positive, fun and safe experience. To make this happen, each family is responsible for successfully completing a minimum number of volunteer sessions prior to the end of the season. 

Volunteer sessions (aka DIBS) will become available after registration has concluded.  Your volunteer deposit check will be securely filed and at the end of the season your check will be shredded unless otherwise requested.  Please know that your check will be handled with extreme care and security and will never be deposited without prior knowledge.

Failure to complete your family’s volunteer responsibilities (four credits for one athlete, eight credits for two or more athletes) in full, will result in the cashing of your volunteer deposit check. You will have the opportunity to buy out of your family’s volunteer responsibilities during the registration process. The buy-out is $150 per athlete.

Submission of deposit check ($200 per athlete, to be written on separate checks) at uniform pick-up is mandatory for any athlete that did not buy out of their volunteer responsibilities. Your athlete will not be permitted to pick up their uniform until their deposit is received. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Once completing registration, you will receive an invitation to connect with the system.  It is essential for you to accept this invitation so you can access athlete information and continue to receive emails from YYTF. If you are having a problem accessing the Dibs system, it is YOUR responsibility to contact the volunteer chair or website coordinator to resolve the issue.
