Thank you for registering your player for the Spring 2021 season. We are excited to get started. Your player’s team coaches will contact you soon. Please see the general football information below. Note that Buckeye Cheerleaders will receive a separate notice regarding their practice schedule.

Grades 3-6 Equipment handout:
Will be held at the Liverpool Community Center (6801 School St, Valley City, OH 44280). See the dates and times listed below. Please do your best to arrive during the specified time per grade to minimize the number of people in the building at a given time. $125 payment will be due at this time. Face coverings are required in the building and please maintain social distancing. Players are required to supply their own padded girdle. Girdles may be an offseason item in the sporting goods stores so please ensure they are ordered in time. Players are recommended to wear them to try on the football pants.

Attend one of two dates:
Wednesday, March 10: 3rd grade 6-6:45pm, 4th grade 6:45-7:30pm, 5th grade 7:30-8:15pm, 6th grade 8:15-9:00pm

At the first practice the $75 payment will be collected, mouth guards handed out and shirt and pants sizes will be taken. BYFA will provide flag belts to be kept with the team equipment.

Grades 3-6 Physicals: Reminder that completed physical forms must be turned in at equipment handout or by the first practice. Players may not participate in practice without a physical. Grades K-2 do not require physicals for flag football.

Football Practice (Not Cheer):
All practices at the Buckeye Youth Football fields. (Again note that Buckeye Cheerleaders will receive a separate notice regarding their practice schedule.) Please check your email, Facebook or for cancellation notices due to extreme weather. Players shall not enter the practice field without a recorded temperature check, individual water bottle and a face covering to be used at all times when off the practice field. Face coverings are required at all times for EVERYONE when off the field.

Grades 3-6 will begin the required acclimation practice week on Monday, March 15th with helmets only. Practice for the first week will be M-T-W-Th 6-7:30pm. All weeks moving forward practices will only be T-W-Th 6-7:30pm.

Grades K-2 will begin practice Tuesday, March 16th 6-7:30pm. Practices throughout the season will be Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-7:30pm.

Please reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thank you and Go Bucks!
