2021 Season Questions

For questions about the upcoming 2021 season, please contact Pete Jones at pjones@emsreps.com

A Letter from the new President

Dear Park City Football Families:  

First off, let me introduce myself.  My name is Pete Jones and I’ve been involved with PC Youth Football for 8 years and on the local PC Youth Football board for the past 3 years.  I’m excited to be taking over the role of President of the Park City Youth Football District in 2021 and look forward to building on the momentum that our past president, Betsy Wright, and board did so much work to create!

We have a lot of great ways for you to be involved and stay connected:

  • Quality coaches are essential to the success of our football program.  We are fortunate to have a great group of head coaches and assistant coaches that are committed to our program and to our players.  We are always looking to add quality coaches to our existing roster.  This year we will have a comprehensive coaching guide for coaches and several coaching clinics to prepare our new and veteran coaches for the season.  Our goal is to have more consistency in the program around principles, fundamentals, and football experience.  We are in need of both head coaches and assistant coaches at multiple age groups.  If you are interested in a coaching opportunity, please reach out to our VP of Coaches, Matt Navarro (mnavarro4040@gmail.com) by 1/31.
  • Park City Passing League (PCPL) – I get a lot of questions about this, so please read through thoroughly.  PCPL is a separate entity from the PC Youth Football District, but we work closely together.  PCPL not only organizes an amazing spring (non-pads) passing league, but also works in the community to provide equipment and support to the youth and high school football programs:

PCPL Spring Season - Games will be Sundays throughout April and May and this is a great opportunity for your child to learn the game, meet other kids and coaches, and spend a Sunday afternoon with your family!  Signups open February 22nd and more information and the sign-up link can be found at www.parkcitypassingleague.com. This fills up quickly, so don’t delay!  If you have any questions, please contact Jess McCurdy at jessmccurdy4@gmail.com.

PCPL Helmet Upgrade Program – I’m excited to announce that we are partnering with PCPL to offer any PC Youth Football players the opportunity to upgrade their helmets to a Riddell Speedflex.  This is the same helmet that the high school uses.  We’ll be sending out additional details on this partnership in the upcoming weeks.

  • Social Media: Although we will continue to send out communications via this Sports Engine platform, we will also be posting this content on:

We are looking forward to a great 2021 Youth Football season.  Look for more communication in the near future.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What equipment do I need to buy for my player?  Answer: You need to provide cleats and a mouthguard (and this year a mask) for your player.
  2. What equipment is provided for my player and how do I get it? Answer:  Equipment handout is Saturday, July 25 at Market Place Self Storage (near Home Depot).  Details about equipment handout will be emailed/posted the week of July 20th.  Your player will be given a helmet, shoulder pads, practice pants, game pants and game jerseys.  The game jerseys are yours to keep. Helmet, pads, and pants must be turned in at the end of the season.  Most players practice in a jersey from previous seasons so they can keep their game jerseys clean.  If you don’t have an old jersey you can buy practice jerseys pretty cheap online or can borrow an old jersey from another player. Game jerseys typically are not distributed until right before the first game.
  3. How do I sign up for volunteer hours? Answer: Select DIBS at the top of this page.  Instructions for how to use DIBS can be found below.  We still need a lot of volunteers for equipment handout on July 25th!  Volunteer opportunities will be more limited this year due to Covid-19 so this is a great chance to fulfill a lot of your 8 hours.
  4. Why does my player need to get weighed?  Answer:  Safety is our top priority in youth football.  As you can imagine, player size varies significantly.  To keep everyone safe, all players are weighed within the first 2-3 weeks of practice.  Players weighing over a specific weight (as designated by the Ute Conference, by age group) are considered “X Men” and are only allowed to play on the line.  Also, players who are light for their age group are allowed to “Z down” and play with a younger age group if they meet the Z-down weight.  Contact your coach for the specific weights for X-men and Z-down for your age group.
  5. How do I find out where and when my player will practice? Answer:  Once coaches have decided the days and times of practice for their specific team, the schedules will be posted in Sports Engine under the “Calendar” tab.  While coaches try to stick to a consistent schedule, especially after school starts, practice times and days may vary from week to week based on coach and field availability.  Your coach or team manager should send out the practice schedule at the beginning of each week, however if you don’t hear from your team manager always refer to the Calendar on this website.
  6. When I have questions throughout the season, who do I ask? Answer:  Always ask your team manager first.  If the team manager doesn’t know the answer he/she will refer you to someone who does.
  7. What is the time commitment?  Answer: Tackle football is a full season commitment.  Practices are NOT optional.  Unless a player is ill or there is a valid reason, it is important that all players attend practices for their own safety and that of their team members.  We love having new players in youth football, however those of you new to football need to understand that football is a FULL commitment and is not a sport that you can easily balance with another sport in the same season.  You are making a commitment to your coaches and teammates to be at every game.  Leaving at halftime or missing a game to play another sport puts everyone in a bad position.  Missing practices means your player will not get play time.
