CYFA Summer Football Camps

Cal Youth Football - Summer 2021 Football Camps

In addition to camps offered through the Varsity Football Program (register at Caledonia Resource Center), Caledonia Youth Football with be hosting to two camps in July that you may register for through our website.  Please see below for details on each and please contact us at with questions or inquiries.

Camp 1. Defensive Camp

July 13th, 14th, 15th from 6-8 this is a camp for kids going into 5th-8th grade. 

This camp will be run be ex college and professional football players that played defense.  I don’t think you can send you kid to a better camp in the Grand Rapids area.  Kids will rotate through different stations teaching them different positions.  I highly encourage your child to attend this camp.  Cost is only $30, if they can’t attend all three days, they can pay $15 a day drop-in fee.  No football gear is need although cleats would be recommended.

Camp 2. Offensive Camp

Kids entering grades 5th-8th:  July 20th and July 21st from 6-8pm.
Kids entering grades 1st-4th : July 19th and July 22 from 5:30-7:30

This camp will be run by Coach Tyler from Elite Sports Training and Coach Chuma from Drive Personal Training and Athletics.  Again, two coaches that train some of the elite football players in West Michigan as well as coach some of the top 7-7 teams in the country.

2020 Season - Restart

Cal Football Family,

After the MHSAA's decision on Thursday to bring football back this fall, our league has decided to bring back youth football as well, although slightly abbreviated. Many things have to happen in a very short period of time for this season kickoff. Below is a list of general information and important dates regarding the season and to help you decide if your child is still going to participate or not. 

"Re-registration (Deadline - Friday, Sept. 11)" - a link to a Google Form was created to let us know if your child is planning to play football this fall or not.  Please fill out the form either way to help us manage our numbers.

If your child is planning to play, you will be redirected to pay the player fee at the end of your submission, similar to before. We still have all of your child's information on record, we just need confirmation.  
Again, we have to know no later than Friday, Sept. 11 whether your child is planning to play this fall or not. 

Refunds for this "new season" will be given up until Monday, Sept. 21st but no refunds after this date.

Important Dates

Friday, Sept. 11 - Last Day for "Re-registration"
Monday, Sept. 14 - 1st Day of practice for 7th grade teams
Monday, Sept. 21 - 1st Day of practice for 3rd-6th grade teams
Tuesday, Sept. 22 - 1st Game for 7th grade teams
Saturday, Oct. 3 - 1st Game for 3rd-6th grade teams
Tuesday, Oct. 20 - Last game for 7th grade teams
Saturday, Oct. 31 - Last game for 3rd-6th grade teams

More information of games and practice locations, times, etc. will be given by the coaching staff.

The league will be following the guidelines established by the MHSAA in regards to health protocols and COVID 19 safety measures including temperature profiles, health questions, and social distancing. As a result, players/coaches must wear a mask or "gator" at all times. In addition, players will be allowed a maximum of 2 spectators at game events. Those spectators must be listed prior to the game and checked off the roster as they enter through the gates. "Livestreaming" of games has been in discussion but no determination is set as of yet.

Coaches will have additional information to share with parents as the season progresses and things get rolling, but this should give you at least some incite into what the season will entail. Remember, Friday, Sept. 11 is the absolute deadline for registration this fall. I hope this sheds a little light on the matter and we can get our season underway.

Thank you again for all of your patience and support throughout this season.

Go Scots!
