Q.  Is CTYFL a traveling league?

Q.  How many players are on a team?

A.  The maximum team size for tackle divisions is 19 players and the minimum is 11. Except for the PeeWee 6-Man tackle division, the max team size is 11 and the minimum is 6. We believed that keeping team sizes down allows for maximum participation for each player as well as proper coaching for each player
