The York Region Football Association’s philosophy is to use the game of football as a tool to develop in our players Respect, Integrity, Honesty, Fair Play, Discipline and Perseverance.
The York Region Football Association was formed in 2016 when the York Simcoe Bucs merged with the Markham Raiders.
The York Region Football Association’s early philosophy continues today – introducing kids to the aspect of team play, fair play and sportsmanship, using the game of football as our tool. The Association’s mandate is to introduce as many boys and girls to the game of football (played under the Canadian rules) as possible and to ensure that they are coached safely. The Association added one other essential element to its mandate:
FUN! The emphasis on fun must be included to ensure a positive and lasting experience for each participant.
