2020 Season

Hello MYFA families! We are moving forward with plans to begin the 2020 season. We plan to offer all levels of football as we always do grades K-6! We plan to have tackle for all levels grades 1-6, unless something changes. If we are unable to go with tackle we will still do flag season for all levels if necessary. Basically if the high school is unable to do football this year, we will most likely need to go to flag to adhere to community guidelines. If this happens, you will be notified and we will make any changes necessary to continue the season.

This season will be shorter as we are starting later due to all area leagues waiting on guidance. Below is a tentative outline for all grades for the season. The honest truth is that this season has so many factors and unknowns that we may need to make changes and adjust on the fly. We apologize ahead of time for when this happens. We will try to have excellent communication using Facebook, website and emails (once everyone is registered). If the season is suspended or canceled due to unforeseen circumstances THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS. This is because the program has already purchased insurance for the year, equipment has been reconditioned, purchased etc.

Online registration will begin tomorrow Tuesday September 1st. There will be no changes in registration cost. Please register here on the website. Payment is expected at time of registration. There will be certain protocols around mask wearing, social distancing, attendance to games and practices, monitoring of temperature etc. When we know more, we will communicate this as it is still undecided at the State/Community level and we are waiting on guidance.

Parents of players will need to sign a waiver in person before the child practices. The waiver will be around Covid-19 liability, agreement to follow any restrictions/protocol the program or league put in place around practices and games as well as acknowledging the no refund policy this season. At this time we also do not know how many teams we will have at each level. Hopefully nothing will change, but if we have a lack of registrations/players we may only have one team per level. This will be determined after the first week of practices.

We will give more information and updates on scheduling, but here is what we know so far:
