2024 BBYF FOOTBALL SEASON

Welcome to the 2024 Bridgewater Badgers Football Season. This is our 45th season and we are proud of the program we have built. BBYF is a 501(c)(3) and volunteer-run organization, founded in 1980, to provide a fun, positive, and successful tackle football experience for Bridgewater youth in Grades 2-8. BBYF is a long-standing member of the Old Colony Football League (OCYFL). BBYF follows and adheres to the OCYFL By-Laws in its operation and gameplay. BBYF operates on funds generated from registration fees, fundraising, game admission, and donations.

2024 OCYFL Season

The online registration system is open for all levels for the 2024 season. All veterans and new players can register online.

The Registration Fees will remain at $200  this year. There is no family cap this season. You will receive a $50 discount on the 2nd player registered in your family. A 3rd player will receive a $150 discount and a 4th player in the family registered will receive a $200 discount.

We are implementing a volunteer question to this year’s registration. We are requiring that each player registration volunteer at least 4 times during the season. We have had issues in filling spots over the past few seasons. We have adopted what some of the other OCYFL towns are doing to host games at their locations. We are still one of the cheapest programs in the OCYFL but we need volunteers to be successful in hosting Varsity/JV games, Playoffs or Super Bowls at our home field.

There will be two options that you will be required to answer when registering your player regarding volunteering.

If you opt out of volunteering you will be agreeing to pay $100 per registered player in the program.
