Welcome to Herndon Optimist Youth Football (HOYF)!

We are sorry to report that our Fall 2020 tackle football season has been canceled because youth tackle football was designated a high infection risk activity and not permitted during Phase 3 by the Governor of Virginia. Please check back with us in June 2021 to get the status for the Fall 2021 season.

In the meantime, if you need more information on our tackle football programs, read the "What is Herndon Optimist Youth Football" news article below, select "FAQs" from the menu options, or submit your question via the "Contact Us" menu option.
