News and Announcements


The Buckeye Youth Football Association is proud to have earned Gold Status through USA Football’s League Excellence Program for the 2021 season! This is a national recognition very few Youth organizations have received for “a commitment to raise operational standards and provide a great environment for athletes and their families.”

USA Football recently published the article linked below describing all that BYFA does for Youth Football and Cheer in the Buckeye Community and with the LEYFL. This is a great recognition though just a glimpse into the commitment to excellence of our Board Members, Coaches and wonderful Buckeye supporters!

Please see below for information on equipment return for all 3rd to 6th grade Buckeye Youth Football players. K to 2nd grade players do not have to return jerseys or pants. All equipment must be returned at either of the two dates below.

When: Wednesday 11/3 6-8pm or Saturday 11/6 9-11am
