Good evening football families. It is with a heavy heart that our tackle season was taken from our youth kids this afternoon with the MPA ruling. We are still continuing a season with flag football for the kids. We want to keep the kids learning and playing a game they love, even if it looks different this season. Below is the most recent update after a Coaches meeting tonight.
Grades 3-6: We will be playing regional inter-community flag football (teams to be determined. Waterville and Winslow have committed with other programs expected to join). We will NOT need to have equipment hand out this weekend. Team selection will continue next week and rosters will be announced at some point. Please see next week’s practice schedule below. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Grade 3-4: Practices will be the following days at Messalonskee Middle School Tuesday 5:30-7pm Friday 5:30-7pm Sunday 10-11:30am
Grades 5-6: Practices will be the following days at Messalonskee Middle School Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday 5:30-7pm
Now for an update for the K-2
At this time there are no changes for grades 1-2 as far as the time line goes to begin the season. As we have said all along we will still have a season whether it is tackle or flag. This decision will be based on the amount of registrations. Here is a reminder below to what the schedule is for Grades 1/2:
Equipment issue is Saturday 9/19/20 Grade 2 will be at 9am and Grade 1 will be at 10am at our equipment shed located at 6 Oak Street, Oakland behind fire station. Practices will start the week of 9/21/2020 (TBD by Coaches) and will occur at Messalonskee Middle School. 5 games total will be played. The first game will be on 10/3/2020 with the last game being Saturday 10/31/2020 (full schedule TBD).
FLAG: 5 total weeks beginning on Saturday 10/3/2020 @ 10am. All games will be played at Messalonskee Middle School football field Saturday mornings at 10am always. Last game will be Saturday 10/31/2020.
If anything changes for these levels we will notify parents as soon as possible.
Thank you all! See you on the fields!
