There will be 8 regularly scheduled games during the fall season. All games are played on Saturday or Sunday. Junior Varsity games are played on one day and Varsity games played on the other day. Games are usually played on the high school stadium field unless otherwise noted. Games usually last about 1 1/2 hours. LEFA is a part of York County Youth Football Association (YCYFYA).
