What's New with Youth Football in Jackson Township Ohio...
Friday, October 27, 2017
The Jackson Youth Football Association values the opinions of the players & parents that make this organization such a successful venture. The goal of the JYFA has always been to make the game of football a fun, positive and educational experience for the kids in Jackson.

Please take a minute to fill out this survey/questionnaire and let the Board Members and Coaches know where they have excelled, and the areas where we need to improve. Feedback is essential for the continued development and improvement of any sports program.

Coaches will be given their "final score" to assist them in setting and maintaining goals consistent with the philosophy of Jackson Youth Football. Your input and comments will be kept strictly confidential.

Additionally, please note the survey is designed for one survey for each league / team.  Therefore, if you have more than one player, you will need to submit more than one survey if you wish to provide specific feedback for each league / team.

We ask that you complete our on-line survey by clicking on the link below.  Please try to complete the survey this week as the survey will close on November 16th.

After a GREAT FOOTBALL season, it's time to turn in Football Equipment.  We welcome all teams during the times listed below.  All this equipment is worth about $500, so please don't make us invoice you $500 for not turning in the equipment.  

The process literally takes 2 minutes.  If you cannot stay for those 2 minutes, pack everything in a trash bag (all 9 items) with your son's name on it and drop it off during these hours.  

When Purple wins this weekend, I'll schedule a date specifically for you!

The following 2 turn-in dates have been scheduled:

When:
  • Wednesday, October 18 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
