CYFFL’s Chargers embraces being interwoven with the community

CHILLICOTHE – With August just around the corner, for many Ohio families, that means the start of high school football.

Throughout the state, football remains its most beloved sport and Friday nights have religiously been spent cheering on teams for generations.

However, the love for the game does not just start once a child reaches high school, most have wanted to play since they were children.

One of the best opportunities to start playing is the Chillicothe Youth Flag Football League (CYFFL), which has been operating since 2013.

The Chillicothe Youth Flag Football League is preparing for the 2021 football season. The league will take children ages four to twelve.

Hundreds of children ranging from 4-12 are separated into six teams: the Chargers, Raiders, Southeastern, Patriots, Cowboys, and Bengals. From there, the age groups being are broken up between Bandits (4-6), junior varsity (7-9), and varsity (10-12).

CYFFL President, Brad Scraggs talked about the value of sports for kids and said that impact goes well beyond just having fun.

“Sports bring a sense of enjoyment,” Scraggs said. “But underneath the enjoyment, sports prepares children for their future in life by developing life skills. They increase physical activity and health, form social and community bonds, and kids learn how to face and overcome challenges.”
