2018 Season Information - IMPORTANT!!
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). If you have one that fits from a previous year, feel free to use it. Practice The first day of practice is Monday, July 30th from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Please have your child wear shorts,cleats, t-shirt, and helmet with formed mouthpiece.

Games - Games will be Saturdays ranging in starting times from 12:00pm-8:00pm. We will receive a schedule sometime in August from Lake Erie Youth Football League. There will be no Jamboree this season, but we will have a “scrimmage day” on 8/18 that we intend to host and/or participate in. Our first tackle games will be Saturday 8/25 and the Championship games are scheduled for 10/20. More info to come as the season gets closer.
