This Friday, June 30th will be your final opportunity to have your daughter sized for a cheer uniform. If you choose not attend at least on of our sizing dates your daughter will not have a uniform for the upcoming 2017 season.

Our final uniform sizing day will take place at the Jackson Twp. hall this Friday 6/30/17 at 4:30pm until 7:00pm sharp. If you are out of town and unable to make the final sizing appointment, this measurement form can be fill out and email back to us

The deadline to turn in the uniform sizing form is 7/1/2017. However, please be aware that if you choose not to attend any of our sizing events the JYFA is not responsible for ill fitting uniforms.

Please note the JYFA Cheer program has a social media page on Facebook under Jackson Youth Cheer. We frequently post updates about the upcoming cheer season.

Let me take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the Jackson Youth Football Association (JYFA).  JYFA was established in 1969, the organization has a proud tradition of developing boys’ and girls’ football and cheer skills, as well as a long history of fielding competitive teams that enjoy success locally. Even more importantly, the JYFA has had a positive impact on the lives of Jackson area youth, their families, and the community.

This year, we are developing a sponsorship program that will allow JYFA to extend its strong traditions for years to come. Your contributions will be targeted exclusively to lower the growing costs of the football and cheer 300+ players, enabling them to fully participate in JYFA training programs, football games, and local tournaments.

JYFA is guided by a volunteer board of directors and dedicated parent volunteers that have helped grow this program into what it is today. However, we are different from some other football programs in that we are a small nonprofit program that does not receive any governmental or grant assistance. Our primary revenue source is registration fees paid by families, proceeds from our annual raffle ticket fundraisers, and donations received from generous individuals and businesses like you. 

In order to continue to make this rewarding experience a reality for our youth, we are reaching out directly to area businesses, families, and friends, and offering the opportunity to help by becoming a sponsor!  Please take a moment to review and select the sponsorship package that best fits your business and budget, sponsorship packages can be found here:
Respectfully yours,

Eric Johnson
JYFA President
