A Little Bit About Landmark Eagles
Landmark currently fields two different football teams, a Junior High and a Senior High (Varsity) team. Both teams abide by OHSAA football guidelines. The Varsity team additionally abides to the Great Lakes Christian Athletic Conference (GLCAC) and the National Homeschool Football Association (NHFA) guidelines.
Landmark teams practice on a field located on the campus of Ross High School, 3601 Hamilton Cleves Rd, Hamilton, OH 45013
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). Eligibility requirements for participation follow the National Homeschool Football Association guidelines:
Player must be <19 years old on May 1st of the the calendar year in which they will be participating. Player's that turn 19 years old after May 1st must have played on the team the prior year.
Athletes must be 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 at least 1 down 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.
60% of our Varsity team must be comprised of homeschooled students to be eligible to play in the Homeschool Football Classic and the NHFA Tournament. Therefore, if you are a public or private schooled student, and this would be your first season on the Cincinnati Landmark Eagles, please email the Varsity Head Coach (see email address below) before registering to ensure that we still have space available on the team for non-homeschooled athletes. (Non-homeschooled students returning for their second season and beyond can register without contacting coach.)

Our football coaches have experience at various levels including the collegiate and professional ranks. Landmark players have gone on to play football in college (see our Alumni page) and attribute their success to the coaching and instruction they received while at Landmark.
We are a 100% volunteer organization -- without the help of our families, our games and other activities would not happen!. Therefore, all families are required to volunteer to some degree in fundraising, game day, and other various volunteer slots. We have found that different families have different availabilities to do so. With that in mind, CLE has created a fee tier so that families have more flexibility to decide how to support the team. The fee tier chosen by the family at registration determines their volunteer requirements. Families with a willingness and availability to volunteer more hourse will receive a discount of several hundred dollars per athlete. As part of the online registration, families are given a link to the SignUpGenius (which provides the complete list of volunteer opportunities to choose from.) . Our goal is that everyone will be able to feel the value of their volunteering a little more by assigning it a monetary amount. We want to streamline all types of volunteering so that it all “counts”. Knowing there are so many ways to invest in our Cincinnati Landmark family, we want to make a BIG deal about all of them!
* Note that football players will NOT be given any of their equipment until the appropriate volunteer hours have been scheduled for that player.
