Football: Freshman Division

Jeff Fuller, Flag Division Vice-President, is the Board Member responsible for the operation of our Flag Division. Jeff has been involved with the league since 2008 when his oldest son played football in our Flag Division.



Demographics

The Freshman Flag Division is made up of four (4) teams. Players in this Division are four (4) to five (5) years old on July 1st of the current calendar year.

New Players

New players are assigned to teams at random though the goal is to balance age and experience as much as possible at this level.

Returning Players

Every returning player has the option to return to their previous team. Players can also be reassigned if they choose. A returning player who took a year off may not be reassigned to the original team. The BWYAA attempts to honor specific team requests in this Division.

Concession Stand

All families are required to work the concession stand on one day, one time each season, for one hour prior to or following your participant's game or performance. Your Team Mom will have a sign-up sheet.

If a team does not have full coverage during their assigned time, no game announcement will be provided for that team.

Conditioning Camp

There is no Conditioning Camp for our Sophomore Division.

Equipment

The BWYAA provides a jersey and flags for game day. You provide pants and rubber soled cleats or tennis shoes. Most families have white, gray or black baseball pants which work fine. You are not required to buy new.

Practices

In the Flag Division, teams are permitted to practice two times each week until school begins and then once per week until the end of the season. Practices do not exceed one and a half hours in length. Locations are communicated by the Head Coach.

Games

All games are played at JR Smith Park in Sunbury, Ohio. Regular season games begin the weekend after Labor Day for eight weeks. Game times fluctuate each weekend. Parking is congested during game transitions, especially from 12:00PM to 2:00PM.

The paved driveway from the Scoreboard around to the Concession Stand must remain clear in the event of an emergency. Games will be halted if this parking request is violated.

Tournament

The Flag Division does not participate in Tournaments.

Special Event

At the end of the season, the BWYAA sponsors a Monday Night Football experience for our Sophomore Division. This event is played under the lights with special activities throughout the evening.
