The proud tradition of CBYAA

Recreation football and cheerleading is permanent mainstay in the town of Colonial Beach. The Colonial Beach Athletic Association is the primary mechanism in which the football and cheerleading high school programs continue to remain competitive. Given the fact that Colonial Beach High School is the fifth smallest school in the state that competes in football, the recreation programs associated with the CBYAA has a lot to be proud of.

Now in its 12th year, CBYAA president Scott Foster is elated to experience the program’s largest turnout of athletes.
“I’m really surprised at the economy the way it’s been, to get this many kids to come out,” Foster said during a recent practice at Monroe Park.
After six years of dominating three different conferences with programs that continue to result in championships, from district to state, Drifter sports have become a fixture in newspaper headlines.
On Aug. 29, from noon to 7 p.m., the city and counties from Fredericksburg, Northumberland, Lancaster, Caroline, Westmoreland and Colonial Beach will begin their regular season at Maury Stadium in Fredericksburg. Maury Stadium is the home of the James Monroe Yellow Jackets.
The schedule for CBYAA will feature three home games at Monroe Park and three away games.
The season will end in a Superbowl playoff format, which will determine the season’s champion. Last year, the flag and varsity levels brought home victories in the Superbowl, with the junior varsity competing in the Superbowl championship.
The program is enjoying its largest turnout of players since it began. With the varsity (ages, 11-13) featuring 29 players, the anticipation for a strong high school junior varsity program in 2010 is the stuff that continues to make the Drifter programs competitive.
Not far behind in growth is the junior varsity (ages 8-10, 26 players), and the flag level (ages 7-8, 16 players). The cheerleading program (ages 6-13, varsity, junior varsity and flag is also enjoying a strong season, attendance-wise at 40 participants.
The coaching staff for the CBYAA has dedicated two days a week during the evening to develop the players and cheerleaders into tomorrow’s high school stars. The CBYAA coaching staff consists of the following coaches; Scott Foster, Pat Ey, Earl Payton, Richard Headley and David Allison.
The deadline to join the CBYAA will officially end after the first game of the season. However, teams with rosters below 17 players will be allowed to bring additional players into their program.
The cost for the program is $55 dollars, with a discount given to families with two or more siblings participating.
Foster and his staff of coaches teach fundamental football from the ground up, with a focus on technique. In fact, CBYAA coaching staff has already oriented the young Drifters into the world high school football by medically using the same single wing offense that their varsity high school level counterparts rely on during the season.
“I’m a firm believer in our program,” Foster said. “If we didn’t get them out here at the ages of seven to 13 years old to play football, it would be much harder trying to get them to compete as eighth graders.”
