Auburn Youth Football and Cheer continues its first season this Saturday with a full slate of games at Auburn High School Saturday, September 12.
AYFC fields six football teams and two cheerleading squads, with close to 150 students in Kindergarten through sixth grade, who will all be in action on the home turf Saturday afternoon, ending in the evening with the last game under the lights.
The games are free and open to the public, though donations are graciously accepted. The AHS snack shack will be open to keep families fed. AYFC invites families in town to come out and support their friends and classmates as they play a round of divisional opponents.
In addition to the music and announcing that has become a staple of the AYFC home games, this week will also feature the use of the high school scoreboard. Thanks to a unanimous vote by the board at last night’s School Committee meeting, the scoreboard will be used to give the games a more realistic feel.
Additionally, for those looking for another way to support the youth of AYFC, you are welcome to join the 1st Annual AYFC Golf Tournament on September 21, 2015 at the beautiful Pine Ridge Country Club in North Oxford, MA. The event will be a 4-person scramble with a shotgun start at 9:00AM. Individual registrants will be teamed randomly. Fee includes green fees, cart, italian buffet and golf shirt. Mulligans will be available for purchase at registration, and a string for use on any hole (prize holes excluded) for $5. Register by visiting http://www.planmygolfevent.com/28349-AYFC/.
