The recent flare of physical altercations and unsportsmanlike conduct has been very disappointing and quite disturbing. This is not who Columbus Youth Football is, and it is not who we want to become in. Columbus Youth Football has 63 years of generational alliance and community development. Our legacy is rich and we are proud of it.
I want to take the time to clearly say we do no not condone violence of any kind on or off our fields. Safety on all levels is vitally important, as if the youth and participants are our own. Columbus Youth Football has a strict code of conduct that every parent, coach, volunteer agrees to abide upon deciding to be a part of our family. Our zero tolerance ensures the safety of everyone.
Effective immediately, any parents on our fields, unless you are summoned, for any reason, are banned from all CYF functions for the rest of the season. Any parents, or any unauthorized personnel on our fields and vice versa, whether it is physical or verbal aggression against anyone will cost that team their season. Please note, you may be subject to arrest and additional charges, as the law permits. There will be no refunds. Our season will be safe for everyone. The officials are in charge of the games. Please see your league presidents for your concerns. Thank you for choosing Columbus Youth Football! Let's have fun!
