Before the first game (August), practices are Monday through Friday, 6-8 PM. Friday practices may be shortened. After the first game, practice days and times are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 6-8 PM. These times may adjust due to daylight issues in October.
Practices are held at Birmingham Groves High School. Please drop off your child at the northwest playing fields next to the football stadium.
Games are Saturday or Sunday of each week beginning the last week of August and there are eight consecutive game weeks during the regular season with the potential of three additional weeks for playoff-eligible teams. View the Team Schedule
Home games are traditionally played at either Groves or Seaholm High School.
Away game fields can be found on the OMYFA website.
In football, practice is essential for performing well during the year. A player missing practice may miss important schemes or scouting adjustments in any given week. With that said, the coaches recognize that illnesses and certain events occur that prevent children from making practice. Our official policy is that a player that has two unexcused practices during a game week cannot play. Players participating in school events such as camps are given excused absences. For clarification of any rule, please contact your assigned coach.
