Complaint Review: CYFFA
CYFFA Conejo Youth Flag Football Association Rip Off Thousand Oaks California
CYFFA is fake! They scammed unharmed organizations to make it look like they have a league to get money from sponsors that the teams never see... They get paid from organizations to provide games they couldn't because they don't have legit teams. Be careful DO NOT put your youth program in their hands !
CYFFA Football League is a youth sports program in Thousand Oaks, California that is owned by an individual. The registration fee is $195.00 and if you want your child to have a trophy for it- that's another $10.00. If you want to keep your child's jersey that's even more money. But aside from the cost for everything- CYFFA is extremely unprofessional. Very little information was given to parents, such as correct practice times or when the practices/games were scheduled.
If practice was cancelled, such as on rainy days or heaven forbid it's to hot in Thousand Oaks at 5PM, we wouldn't get a phone call about it until 10 minutes before it was scheduled to begin. What's more, there were certain times my child's team was scheduled to play games on Saturdays, and nearly every game day when we arrived the other teams were "behind schedule", and we would have to wait an hour or 2 before our game would begin.
On the final game day for their "Superbowl" they were 2 hours behind schedule. Then when the previous team played, the coaches sat around chatting for 30 minutes before beginning the final game. It was only when parents in the stands began yelling to start the game did they saunter over and start the coin toss. But the worst thing I saw by far was the bias of the head coach/Vice President Mark Chin. There were several teams in the league, and he actually hand picked the best players for a particular team, then proceeded to coach that team himself. Naturally this is the team that won the Superbowl. I found that very unprofessional.
CYFFA allowed Mark Chin to become not only the Vice President, but also a coach to 2 teams in which he stacked both rosters and played "Daddy Ball" for 2 of his 4 sons that play in the league.
CYFFA used to be a good starting place for kids to learn football, but has gone down hill since Mark Chin's arrival 2 years ago. The referees are untrained and lack any experience. They are kids between the ages of 13-17. Looks like it was a way to cut costs by CYFFA and hire cheap labor.
The game play is very rough on the kids and I sometimes feel like tackle football would be a much safer way to go. CYFFA and Mark Chin only care about their own agenda. Making decisions based on making more money for themselves and jeopardizing our children and their health in the meant time.
