Buckeye Youth Football and Cheer Families,
Rather than practice this coming Thursday 9/21/2023 BYFA will follow tradition and participate in the Buckeye High School Homecoming Parade. At 5:30pm please meet your team in the grass area between the bus garage and the school parking lot as shown below. Football players please wear your game jerseys and Cheerleaders your Buckeye uniforms or spirit wear per your Coach’s direction. By 6:00pm the parade lineup will kick off and our teams will walk together once around the football stadium track. Please coordinate with your team coaches for candy to toss out to the crowd! Teams can meet parents after the parade back in the grass area by the bus garage.

Thank you and Go Bucks!
