The Hershey Youth Football Association (HYFA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to serving the youth of the community through the sport of football and cheerleading. This is a place where the youth in our community can come and develop far more than just football and cheerleading skills, but LIFE skills.
Our organization teaches youth about being part of a team, how to be a leader on and off the field, and how to be a contributing member of our local community by helping our neighbors, as well as those we do not even know. HYFA plays an important role in the development of many young men and women in an age where electronic devices are taking over every aspect of our lives. HYFA helps these young student-athletes raise their heads up and develop confidence they never knew they possessed, provides necessary skills on how to overcome life’s obstacles, and how to be one as a team to face the fights and struggles of a football game and potentially life.
We care about the youth of our organization first and foremost. As a dedicated 100% volunteer organization, the goal of the program is to teach the fundamentals of football and cheerleading in a safe, structured, and fun environment. We encourage the kids to do their best and challenge themselves on a daily basis, physically and mentally, to achieve their goals. We are committed to teaching them discipline, integrity, and sportsmanship; skills that will be useful throughout their lives.
