We are an unlimited weight tackle youth football league that was formed in 2007.
BYFC consists of 11 communities in the Greater Akron Area, they are Tallmadge, Ellet, Springfield, Manchester, Northwest, Norton, Rittman, Chippewa, Barberton, Coventry and Greentown.
Our youth football rules are unique to this area, we form our divisions around grade level and offer bigger kids a chance to play youth football.

Welcome to the eleventh annual football season of the Buckeye Youth Football Conference. This youth athletic organization has been created to offer communities the perfect mix of developmental and competitive youth football and cheerleading activities. By joining like minded communities together who view their youth programs as the stepping stone to successful High School squads, BYFC was able to establish a curriculum that offers increased playing time and league wide developmental objectives. Unlike other area leagues who restrict the participation of larger kids, BYFC has opened the door to what has been a very successful "all eligible" rule in other areas of Northeast Ohio. We hope your son or daughter enjoys their participation in our league and comes away with an appreciation for our goal of good sportsmanship, in athletic competition.
