CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Area Youth Association, also known as C.A.Y.A., will host sign-ups this Saturday.
Registration runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 13 at the Crestview High School Field House. The football program is for ages 5-12; cheering is for ages 5-14.
C.A.Y.A. plays in the Panhandle Youth Football Association. Its football season runs from June/July (training camps), August to October for regular season, post season October to November, and November for All-Stars.
All money made by CAYA is reinvested into the program for trophies, a banquet, training and game equipment, uniforms and the training facility, among other things. The team provides 95 percent of all equipment to players and cheerleaders. All football gear is less than five years old and is changed out every three to five years for new equipment.
