The Yorktown High School (YHS) football boosters presented the staff at Virginia Hospital Center (VHC) with bouquets of discount cards to say thank you for their work during the pandemic and beyond. The cards include discounts to local businesses within the YHS and VHC community who sponsor the football program.
We have determined some parents might not be getting the most up to date information because they are only member of last season’s groups. Please take a minute to check your profile and ensure you are a member of the Boosters Parent Group
Thank you to everyone volunteering at the Varsity home game tonight!
Varsity parents – we still need parents for the Snack Bar and Merchandise Table at the 9/9 Freshmen and JV games. If you can’t work on 9/9, there are plenty of openings for the next 2 September home games. Freshmen and JV only have 5 home games this season of which 3 are in September.
JV/Freshmen parents – we still need 1 more Freshmen Chain Gang volunteer for the 9/9 game. Chain Gang are the parents on the sidelines of the field managing signal poles. No experience necessary! You’ll be told what to do. We also need many volunteers for the last September home game for Varsity on 9/17. After that we only have 2 more Varsity regular season home games.

If you open it on your computer, use the Calendar View. That button is in the green header, right below where it says “created by Juliana Yaskin”. Just find the game you want to work and click there. All openings will show. For some reason the regular list view on a computer shows Varsity openings multiple times. You can sign up that way, but it’s confusing. If you open it on your phone, everything shows correctly. One day I might even figure out what is going on with it!
Thank you for your help. We honestly couldn’t do this without your support!
Hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend!
We need at least 3 more snack bar volunteers for the Varsity game this Friday, August 27th.
We need 11 snack bar volunteers and 4 Chain Gang volunteers for the Varsity game on Thursday, September 2nd.
I know our Home Varsity games are very front-end loaded, but that’s the schedule. Please take a look and see if you can knock out your snack bar obligation this week or next. Thank you!!
If you have not received an email about the fundraiser on August 29th, we do not have your email address. Please use the following link to provide it when you have a moment. We will also be collecting them at the Freshmen Team meeting tonight.
You will see on the google sheet a request for your player’s shirt and short size. This is for player packs. If your player was at practice this past Saturday then we have the information. If your player was not at practice, please use this sheet to input their information.
Thank you for your assistance!!
Due to a lot of things and coupled with COVID restrictions we need to make one final change to tomorrow’s schedule and revise some events. Thank you for your patience as we worked through this.
6:15-6:20: families will gather in the near field end zone for a coaches’ talk. This is a long tradition at YHS and we are excited to be able to honor it.
6:45: there will be an on field ceremony for parents/players that will include introductions and pictures.
Following the introductions and ceremony, families will remain on the field with their player for the National Anthem. Families will line up by their players’ helmets, which will be on the sideline spaced appropriately.
Please arrive in time to complete Covid screening and remember everyone must be masked at all times.
Following the last game of the season we will post all pictures that we have taken throughout the season for you and your player to download/print (free) in a Dropbox site, including those we take tomorrow.
Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions.
Thank you and congratulations to you all!
