Humbled. Grateful. Thank you.

There really is no other way to put it into words.

SYFA would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who generously gave up their weekend to make our 8th Annual Battle on the Bayou Tournament a huge success. In all, over 40 teams consisting of 950+ players, over 2,000 young people, parents, grandparents and community members came through our gates.

Our Board of Directors, Ladies Auxiliary and countless volunteers worked tirelessly from field preparations, registration, check-ins, concessions, scheduling brackets, refereeing, and commissioners to clean-up.  It took some very special people to accomplish a truly tough task. Very special thank you goes to the referees for also working extremely hard to move the games along smoothly. With 75 games being played, it was a very daunting task.

Of course, we cannot say thank you enough to the true backbone of this effort, our Tournament Director, Mr. Jermaine Wiltz. He did an extraordinary job coordinating this tournament and has set a new record for SYFA.  

Like any event, we learned a lot. We understand there were some hiccups along the way but that only gives us room for improvement and lessons learned. You can bet that we will strive to continue to give you the BEST football experience on the Northshore. It is our mission to think of every single player and their family as our family, and we want all of you to understand that we will always work tirelessly to make your experience a valuable one.


Lastly, congratulations to all the Battle on the Bayou Championship winners!!!

               Welcome SYFA Family!

I am truly grateful to serve as your 2015 President.  Having served as Vice-President previously and coaching for several years I can say that I am thrilled to once again serve our local youth.  It is my desire to work along with my fellow Board Members to accomplish great things for SYFA this year.  Our goal is to continue to fulfill the mission of SYFA and inspire youth to respect themselves, their coaches, teammates and parents as they learn the fundamentals of football and cheerleading.  I will continue to work diligently to ensure that our park provides a safe environment for families and all children are treated with RESPECT. I ask that as a community we stand together to prove that we are "100% Kids First".  To all Board Members, Ladies Auxiliary, Coaches, Volunteers, Sponsors, and Parents, please join me in making this Season one of the Best and Most Memorable.

Many Thanks for your Support and electing me as President!
