The Downingtown East High School Football Association, DEFA, is a non-profit, volunteer organization, dedicated to supporting the Downingtown East High School Football Team.
We would not be able to provide that support without the participation of our parents, players, and coaches.

Below is a list of parent volunteer opportunities that will be needed for a successful season. Please also download or print a copy of the 2023 Parent Handbook for additional information on how you can be involved.  Download and view a copy of the power point that was provided during the all-parent meeting here.
If you are interested in sponsoring the team during the season, please visit the Program Ad page on our website or email us directly with your questions.

Thank you!
