‚ÄčThe SHYFL uses the National Federation of High School Football rules and regulations as its basis.

Additionally, the SHFYL Executive Board, the SHYFL Board of Representatives and SHYFL Referees have collectively and unanimously approved adjustments to the National Federation of High School Football rules.  These adjustments maintain a competitive spirit and sportsmanship among league members, keeps our young athletes safe and promotes learning the game of football in a progression that appropriately fits their age and skill level.  

The SHYFL Executive Board maintains the right to enforce and amend all general rules, age specific playing rules and if necessary, impose disciplinary action for conduct detrimental to the integrity, safety and reputation of the SHYFL.
