The Frankfort Youth Athletic Association is a member of the River Valley Football League. The Frankfort Youth Athletic Association was established in 2004 with the following objective: "To promote and install self-confidence, good sportsmanship, camaraderie, physical and mental development while learning the techniques of football and cheerleading."
Originally planned for 4 football teams and 4 cheerleading squads, it became apparent at our first registration that the interest in this town was beyond what we had anticipated. We responded to that need, and doubled the size of the league to accommodate each and every child that wished to participate. At that point in time, we had no field, no facility, no uniforms, no equipment, not nearly enough coaches and no funds. We did, however, have a vision. We also had a large group of dedicated people who were willing to step up and donate a great deal of their time and expertise to this dream. We had faith in the fact that when people are willing to put their hearts and souls towards a common goal, miracles can happen. Thus, the Frankfort Falcons were born.
In 2010, the Falcons Board approved to expand again in its short history. We again responded to the needs and the interests of our local community to make sure we gave the opportunity for every child to participate. The Board approved to add a White squad at all levels thus expanding our organization to 12 football teams and 12 cheerleading squads.
FYAA is a not-for-profit organization that provides experienced coaches, quality equipment and a feeder program for Lincoln-Way East and other area high schools.
The Frankfort Falcons have quickly become an integral part of the community, providing a wonderful outlet for our youth and a great form of entertainment for our citizens.
We are proud of this organization, and we are hopeful that generations beyond ours will enjoy and continue to improve upon what we have created.

"We would like to thank Mayor Holland for his long and continued support of the Falcons organization. We are so thankful that our organization is a part of a great community like Frankfort where the Mayor and the Village Trustees strive to make it the Southwest Suburb's premier village. It is vitally important that community leaders like Mayor Holland recognize the Falcons as being an integral part of the community."
