The 2019 youth football and cheer season will be approaching soon!

Please read all emails as they will contain important information and dates for the upcoming season.

Please note that below is information for JV & Varsity football players. If you have a child registered for flag or cheer, a separate email will be sent soon with important season information.

TACKLE football (JV & Varsity) equipment handouts:
You must attend one of the following dates:
Date: Saturday July 13, 2019 from 9am-11am OR Thursday, July 18, 2019 from 6pm-7:30pm
Location: Liverpool Community Center 6801 School Street, Valley City, Ohio

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.

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.

Physical Required by Monday, July 29th:
Every tackle football player needs to have a completed medical physical prior to starting practice on Monday, July 29th. 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 (Link Updated 7/9/2019) . (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.)

Practice (JV & Varsity):
The first day of practice is Monday, July 29th from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Please have your child wear shorts,cleats, t-shirt, and helmet with formed mouthpiece. Practice will be on the youth fields behind Buckeye Primary School.

Practice will be Monday through Thursday 6:30pm-8:00pm July 29th through August 31st. Starting September 2nd practice will be Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 6:00pm-7:30pm, through the end of the season.

OPTIONAL pre-season practice: (Added 7/9/2019)

All JV and varsity football players are invited to attend our optional pre-season practice nights. We will host these practices on our youth football fields from 6:30pm-8:00pm on July 16, 18, 23 and 25. The players are welcome to attend any or all of these practices. Please have your child wear a shirt, shorts and cleats. Please have your child bring water or sports drink.

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.

Thank you and we look forward to a great season!
