8th Grade Tackle Program

The BYF 8th Grade Tackle Program is specifically designed to imitate the BHS program and provide players a head start unto becoming a future “Bulldog!” Our goal is to successfully move all of these players to the high school level.  We realize this is done in many ways, the most important by providing a safe and positive environment.

BYF is committed to providing your student-athlete the opportunity to learn and develop football's basic skills and fundamental.  Batavia High School Football will be fully supporting this program throughout the entire pre-season and season. We believe the incredible price, combined with the professional coaching planned for your student-athlete, will make this the premiere feeder program in the state
of Illinois.
