This will be our youth night at the high school game where the teams have an opportunity to be on the field and cheer on the Varsity as they take the field. Please have your player/cheerleader meet their coach on the track, next to the scoreboard on the North end of the field at 6:30. Entrance is free, if you wear your coach’s shirt-coach, game jersey-football player, cheerleaders wear Buckeye Spirit wear shirt or Cheer with the bucks t-shirt & Cheer Jacket).

CHEER WITH THE BUCKS: This will also happen this year on 10/5. Full details with registration sheet is below.

If you’re son is interested just show up with cleats and water (no equipment allowed) and we’ll work on stretching, running, cutting, passing, catching, and other fundamental as we get ready for the season. This is a good opportunity to meet the coaches, ask any questions you may have, knock off some offseason rust and have some fun with the boys. You can also drop off their physical evaluation forms to the coaches as well during this time as these must be turned in at or before the first official practice on Monday 7/30.
Welcome to the 2018 Buckeye Youth Football Season!
There are several important dates and requirements that need to be met.
Physical Required by Monday, July 30th - Every tackle football player needs to have a completed medical physical prior to starting practice on Monday, July 30th. Your child will not be able to start practice without a current physical form on file. No exceptions. I have attached the form to this email and it can also be found on http://ohsaa.org/Portals/0/Sports-Medicine/PPE_2018-19.pdf . (If you can’t get into your primary care physician, there are several options for sports physicals at walk-in clinics around Medina/Brunswick. Google: “Sports Physicals in Medina, Ohio” and you will find multiple choices.)
Equipment Hand-out (7/15 & 7/22) - Must Attend There are two dates for equipment handout. You need to attend one of the dates. Dates are Sunday, July 15th or Sunday, July 22nd from 6:00PM-7:30PM at the Liverpool Community Center(6801 School St. Valley City, OH 44280). Please bring a bag or laundry basket to collect your equipment. If you played tackle last year please bring your girdle with you so we can fit your pants.
Girdle - Every tackle football player needs a Football Girdle for the season. You can purchase one at any sporting goods store or online (Amazon).
