Established in April 1997 and a current member of the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce, the Bastrop Youth Football Organization works with children ages 4 to 12 from Bastrop and its surrounding areas in order to foster a keen sense of team work and self confidence. Families from Cedar Creek, Coupland, Elgin, Giddings, Smithville, Paige, La Grange, Lockhart, Manor, Rockne, Rosanky, and even Austin, have been bringing their children to Bastrop to play football and participate in cheer leading for over ten years. An average of 20 children play football, flag football, or are cheerleaders with BYFO every year. BYFO offers summer camps, play-off events, and many other family fun filled times.
As an organization, BYFO believes strongly in community and family. BYFO provides both community involvement and support. We make it a point to purchase our supplies from local companies whenever possible and encourage the families of our players to do the same. Every child has the right to participate, learn and grow through organized sports, and we do our best to make that a reality for every child who wants to play or cheer. Parents and volunteers run every facet of Bastrop Youth Football Organization. We depend on them for everything we do; from coaching, field maintenance, fund raising, serving on our Board, providing financial support and even to provide enthusiastic cheering section for the players and cheerleaders. Without the parents and the volunteers, there would not be a football organization as dedicated to family and community as BYFO. Newcomers to BYFO will find an open organization where everyone is encouraged to attend our monthly board meetings and there is always plenty of work to be done.
The Bastrop Bears Youth Football and Cheer program is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving young boys and girls an opportunity to grow, learn and succeed. As you are aware, most non-profits organizations are unable to operate without the help of sponsors and community support.
In order to continue to make the rewarding experience to our youth, we are reaching out directly to area business, family and friends, and offering the opportunity to help by becoming a sponsor! Your donation as a Sponsor is Tax-deductible and will go directly towards purchasing equipment, rental facilities for use of games, underprivileged children’s fees and uniforms. In return for your sponsorship, we offer multiple advertising opportunities throughout the 2021 season. Your participation will help build partnerships that make a difference in the daily lives and future endeavors of our young boys and girls.
Please take a moment to review and select the sponsorship package that best fits your business and budget. If a monetary donation is not in the budget right now, we are collecting items for raffle baskets, for the community everts we have planned this season. We hope you are able to contribute and thank you for your consideration.
