JFA Youth Updates

Youth Update 8/17/22 - Youth Night 8/19

We will be having our youth night this Friday, 8/19, at the Varsity home opener against Akron East. All players from flag, padded flag, and tackle get in to the game for free as well as coaches. Any parent attending the game must buy a ticket to the game, even if you’re only going in to pick up your son after he runs off the field. Each player that is attending needs to be at the middle school by 545PM. You will enter the doors on the side by Sauder. Flag and Padded flag will be in the Gold gym. Tackle will be in the purple gym. I am asking that every team try and have 2 coaches there for their teams. We have over 460 kids in the youth program so we need as much help as we can get. We will start walking the kids out to the stadium about 610 and we will start announcing teams about 620. The boys get to run through the polar bear head and down the field. Parents plan on picking your child up at the fence near the home stands on the scoreboard side of the field. Everyone is then encouraged to stick around and cheer on our varsity team as they take on Akron East in Coach Rohr’s first game as a head coach. 
Tackle players wear your game jerseys to the game. Padded flag, your jerseys are in and we are working on getting those to you to wear. All flag jerseys are not in. All flag players, if you attended the youth football camp and got the Jackson football shirt from that, please wear that. If you don’t have that, just wear any Jackson shirt you have. 
We look forward to seeing everyone Friday at the game!
