NMYAFL is very excited to announce that we will have an All Star program again this year! The Head Football Coaches from each age group will nominate players from their teams for the All-Stars of their age group. The nomination process will begin on September 12th and the nomination window will close on September 30th. Voting will be held in person after the Special Members Annual Meeting on Sunday October 7th. The voting results will be announced the second week of October. Twenty six (26) total players for East and twenty six (26) players for West, in each age group, will be selected. The All Star finalists from the Mighty Mite and Pee Wee divisions will receive a certificate in honor of making the All Star team. All other divisions will play an All Star game, East vs West, at the end of the season. All five of those games will be held on the same day. Your head coach will be able to answer any questions you may have as they have been given more detailed information.
On September 12th, we will open the website process to nominations. The website will allow nominations by head coaches through Week 7 of the regular season. The nomination window will officially close on September 30th. After the nomination window has each head coach will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for players in their age group (except players on their own roster) after the Special Members Meeting on October 7th.
Head coaches log into your NMYAFL account and look for the "All Star" tile in the Coaches Corner. Starting on September 12th you may nominate four linemen and four specialty position players (receiver, quarterback, running back). Nominating your players is the first step in the All-star process. The window for submitting your nominations will be open from September 12th until 5:00 PM on September 30th. Head Coaches will be able to view a list of all players nominated. Only the Head Coach from each team will allowed to vote for eight (8) players from their respective age groups (4-lineman, 4-specialty positions). Head Coaches cannot vote for any of their own players. Head coaches will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for players at the Special Members Meeting on October 7th at 6:00pm.
During the second week in October, we announce our final All Star vote. 26 players from each age group will make the All Star team. So a total of 52 players from each age group will be selected.
The All Stars finalists for the Mighty Mite and Pee Wee divisions will receive a certificate in honor of making the All Stars. All other divisions will play an East conference vs West conference game. All five (5) All Star games will be played on the same day, which will be the Sunday after all of the Super bowls are completed (tentatively the last Sunday of October or First weekend in November).
