JFA Youth Updates

Youth Night – Friday, August 25 at Robert Fife Stadium @ 5:45pm

We will be having our youth night this Friday (August 25th) at Robert Fife Stadium against Mayfield. All players from flag, padded flag, and tackle get into the game for free as well as coaches. Any parent attending the game must buy a ticket to the game, even if you’re only going in to pick up your son after he runs off the field. Each player that is attending needs to be at the middle school by 5:45 PM, but no later than 6 PM. You will enter the doors on the side by Sauder. Flag A, Flag B, and Padded flag will be in the Gold gym. Tackle will be in the Purple gym. I am asking that every team try and have 2 coaches there for their teams. We will start walking the kids out to the stadium about 6:10 PM and we will start announcing teams about 6:15PM. The boys get to run through the polar bear head and down the field. Parents plan on picking your child up at the fence near the home stands on the scoreboard side of the field. Everyone is then encouraged to stick around and cheer on our varsity team as they take on Mayfield. 
Tackle players wear your game jerseys to the game. All flag players (Padded, Flag A, and Flag B) need to wear your game jerseys as well. We plan to hand out game jerseys to the Flag B coaches at Wednesday’s practice (8/23). 
We look forward to seeing everyone Friday at the game!
