GYFA is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the development of football skills & character for our Gresham area student athletes.
We welcome students entering the 3rd through 8th grade each fall, who reside in the Gresham High School boundary area.
3rd & 4th grade athletes are introduced to football & the concepts with flag football, and graduate into half field tackle football in 5th grade. Full field tackle begins in 7th grade.
Our goal is to develop well-rounded athletes who grow into our high school program. Our home field is the turf field at Gresham High School where we play home games. Our athletes love playing on the turf. Most GYFA upper games are announced. Our athletes love hearing their names over the PA at the filed, just like a High School game.
Our staff works with the GHS Varsity Head Football Coach (Mike Melton) to acquaint the young athletes through practice, football camps and coaching clinics with an emphasis on common terminology, offensive schemes and defensive formations throughout their athletic years in the Gresham School District.
Our athletes are outstanding young citizens who represent our values on and off the field.
Let’s go Gophers!
