GUIDELINES - The Lone Star Youth Football Alliance (LSYFA) is a service youth football organization whose purpose is to provide organized scheduling for member leagues and provide common age groups, weight limits, and playing rules.  There are no costs, fees or moneys required to becoming a member league, only a commitment to play and abide by the common inter-league rules.  Each member league maintains its respective autonomy over all internal decisions, fundraising, board of directors, etc. that may pertain to that individual league.  The LSYFA co-ordinates schedules, inter-league rules and tournaments, pending member approval.  Each member league involved with the LSYFA receives one vote to cast on all motions, proposals, etc.  LSYFA rules supersede and replace all local park rules that may have been in effect.

(2012): LSYFA will only support 1 youth league in membership from the same given community.

RULES - The LONE STAR YOUTH FOOTBALL ALLIANCE will follow the rules of the University Interscholastic League (U.I.L.), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (N.C.A.A.) with the following additions, exceptions and clarifications as defined in the LSYFA Guidelines and Rules.
