Landmark’s home games prior to 2020 have been played exclusively at Lakota West Freshman field, 5050 Tylersville Rd.,West Chester, OH 45069.

In 2020, Landmark switched home field, where available, between the following sites:

  1. Ross High School, 3601 Hamilton Cleves Rd, Hamilton, OH 45013
  2. Athletes In Action Sports Complex, 1197 S Detroit St, Xenia, OH 45385

The Junior High team is a combination of 7th and 8th graders and will usually play 8 games per season. The season typically starts in early August and runs through the middle of October.  Age requirements are by OSHAA eligibility guidelines:

  • Players must be 14 or younger on August 1 of that season and seeking a pre-high school education.

The Varsity team is a combination of 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. This team plays a regular high school 10 game season.  Since 2018, the Senior High team has been a member of the Great Lakes Christian Athletic Conference (GLCAC).  GLCAC eligibility requirements:

  • Player that is 19 years old on or before November 15th of the current season year.  19 year old players must have played on the team the prior year.
  • Are seeking a pre-college education as a full-time student.
  • All players must not exceed 4 consecutive years (seasons) of eligibility at the high school football level and shall not have any tackle football experience, including practicing, beyond/above high school age/level (ie. College, Junior College etc.).  A season consists of playing in four quarters (regardless of number of games).
  • No player can play on a GLCAC team and a non-GLCAC team in the same season.

In 2018, the Varsity team were league champions of the GLCAC and placed 2nd at the National Homeschool Football Association (NHFA) tournament.

In 2019, Landmark added a cheerleading program.  Eligibility for cheerleading follow the same rules as for football (above).

Our football coaches have experience at various levels including the collegiate and professional ranks.  Landmark players have gone on to play football in college and attribute their success to the coaching and instruction they received while at Landmark.
