  • By a vote of 12-1 by eligible CMYFA voting members, the decision to leave the WGYFL and move to the South Hills Youth Football League was made.   The primary reason was to play our local neighbors in who we will also play at the high school level.  Other deciding factors were less travel, Saturday only games, and no admission fees for any games which per family is a big cost saver for CMYFA.   Another big factor was splitting teams as to permit all our players to perform in real meaningful regular season games and not JV games that didn't count.
