What's New with Youth Football in Jackson Township Ohio...
Monday, September 4, 2017
Friday evening, September 8th is Youth Night at the high school's varsity football game vs. Boardman.

All JYFA flag/tackle players and cheerleaders get free admission to the game if they enter the stadium with their team as described below, or by wearing their uniforms.

Parents who wish to have their child walk out on the turf with their team (Flag B, Flag A, Flag Cheer, Cheer & Tackle B, Cheer & Tackle A) need to have their child in their jersey/uniform and inside the middle school NO LATER THAN 6:00 PM on Friday, September 8, 2017.

Drop your child off at the main west entrance (Sauder side) of the Middle School.  Teams will be lined up in the hallway to the left once you enter the school.  Working backwards from the far end of the hallway will be Flag Cheer C, Flag B, Flag A, Tackle/Cheer B, and Tackle/Cheer A.  Please find your child's team name taped to the wall so each team can be grouped together before they head out of the school to be introduced.

The youth teams will be announced at 6:30 and enter onto the field through the inflatable polar bear head at the west (Sauder) end of the stadium.  Following the introductions, parents can pick up their child from the team's coach behind the scoreboard on the east (bus garage/tennis courts) end of the stadium.  Please view the map below for more details on where to drop-off and pickup your child.  We will organize the teams inside the school and proceed out the back of the school, down under the bleachers and out through the bear head where each team will be announced as they parade down the field towards the scoreboard end-zone.

Individual players will not be announced (only the team names will be announced) but each team should have their team photo and player names printed in the game program for Friday night.
The high school game starts at 7:00.
