The Tualatin Valley Youth Football League (TVYFL) follows the National Federation of High School Association’s (NFHS) Football Rules and the Oregon School Activities Association’s (OSAA) Handbook unless specified in this document. Rules set forth in this document take precedence in cases when NFHS, OSAA and TVYFL policies differ.
The TVYFL Bylaws mandate that all changes to the Titles and Rules of the League must be sponsored by general membership and must be adopted by the League following a majority vote by General Membership as defined within the TVYFL Bylaws. Members of the TVYFL Board do not vote in this process. These procedures require that all members be informed in advance that changes are being considered to allow full discussion and response by all members prior to consideration and vote in a General Membership Meeting by General League Members.
Rule changes may be proposed by the general membership and TVYFL Board members. However, any changes in the TVYFL rules must be adopted by representatives of the member associations. In summary, the Board for the TVYFL do not make the rules; the Association members do. The TVYFL is only a governing body.
The members of the Tualatin Valley Youth Football League resolve that the following rules and regulations have been adopted and ratified by a majority vote of the TVYFL Membership.
