The Frankfort Youth Athletic Association was established in 2004 with the following objective:

My my My my


The time has come for equipment pickup for ALL Tackle Football players.  We want to try and distribute as much of our tackle football equipment before practice begins. We understand that summer vacations have begun. 

Equipment pick up will be held on Saturday, June 23rd at the Falcons Shed from 8:00am to 11:00am (located near the corner of Locust St. and Oregon St.). 

ALL tackle players must attend equipment pickup because we size the helmet to the player.  Please do not send grandpa, aunts or brothers without the player. We can not hand out helmets without the player being present.

Please bring a check payable to FYAA for $ 100.00 per football player for equipment/volunteer deposit. We will not cash the check but hold it until you return the equipment and fulfill your volunteer duty.  We will then return your check.  No check no equipment.  

Expect long lines!!!. As much as we gather volunteers to help, the process is still the same.  We can not risk the integrity of a secured fit to hastily move players along to their next appointment. Please plan accordingly.

The Falcons provide the following equipment:
Helmet, Chin Strap, Shoulder Pads, Mouth guard, Game jersey and Socks

Players are responsible for the following equipment:
Practice jersey, Practice pants with pads, Game pants with pads, football cleats  

Practice will begin on Monday, July 24th.  You will receive information directly from your team on the exact location and time.  Teams will practice 5 days per week (Monday thru Friday) for the first couple of weeks.  Your team’s game schedule will be available online shortly.  Please check the website frequently for important information.

Important Dates
July 23rd - Practice begins for all teams
Aug 18th/19th - First game 
Nov 11th - Superbowl

Nick Allegretti visits the Falcons

The Frankfort Falcons would like to give a big thanks to Nick Allegretti, Falcons 2009, LWE 2014 and current starting center for the Fighting Illini for coming out and speaking to our young Falcon football players about how this great game is teaching us about life. Nick mentioned to never give up on your dreams, become a well rounded person in sports, volunteer and give back to the community! Nick reminded us to have FUN, have a great attitude and appreciate every single day and the people that help us get to where we are today! We would also like to thank Coach Z, Varsity Head Football Coach at LWE, for providing insights for our kids and coaches as well. The benefits of this gathering will be remembered for years to come. 

Nick was recenlty named to the Rimington Award and AFCA Good Works Team watch lists. The Rimington Award goes to the top center in the country, while the AFCA Good Works Team recognizes student-athletes for their efforts off the field like volunteer work and community involvement.

The Importance of Athletics - One Parent’s Perspective

"One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money for your kids to do all their sports”? Well I have a confession to make; I don't pay for my kids to to do sports. Personally, I couldn't care less about what sport they do. So, if I am not paying for sports what am I paying for?

  • I pay for those moments when my kids become so tired they want to quit but don't.
  • I pay for those days when my kids come home from school and are "too tired" to go to their training but they go anyway.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to be disciplined, focused and dedicated.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to take care of their body and equipment.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to work with others and to be good team mates, gracious in defeat and humble in success.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don't get that placing or title they'd hoped for, but still they go back week after week giving it their best shot.
  • I pay for my kids to learn to make and accomplish goals.
  • I pay for my kids to respect, not only themselves, but other athletes, officials and coaches.
  • I pay for my kids to learn that it takes hours and hours, years and years of hard work and practice to create a champion and that success does not happen overnight.
  • I pay for my kids to be proud of small achievements, and to work towards long term goals.
  • I pay for the opportunity my kids have and will have to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of their achievements as I am.
  • I pay so that my kids can be out on the field or in the gym instead of in front of a screen.

I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for sports; I pay for the opportunities that sports provides my kids with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment!"
