Season Postpone until Fall 2020

After another three weeks, it appears our lives are still adjusting to these “stay-at-home” orders issued by state governors and elected officials across the nation and globe.  With all the unknowns surrounding COVID-19, there are increased levels of stress, burdens, chaos, and emotions. As families, friends, and communities, it is essential that we keep communicating and displaying hope.

We are all frustrated, angry, scared, and disappointed in our spring pertaining to academics, school activities, family events, and sports. We are all fighting the same culprit: COVID-19.

Our spring season is sadly postponed until at least June, when Governor Brashear lifts the “stay-at-home” advisor. The health and safety of our flag football community is vital, and we will not compromise this for any reason. Therefore, we are postponing the season until the “stay-at-home” advisor is lifted by governments (both at state and national levels), and it is safe to play, build relationships, learn life skills, and establish a sense of normalcy again.

**There could be weeks with doubleheaders so all games can be scheduled

We realize these are not the dates you signed up for, but none of us anticipated COVID-19 and its deadly wrath and destructive path. As we know it this year, all events and activities are shifting and adjusting; these are changing lives as we know it and even what we don’t know yet. Therefore, we want to give our young athletes hope to a great flag football season, even though things may be slightly different.

We together encompass safety, love for the game, desire to make friends, and instill life lessons. We can do this! So, let’s plan for the future, hope for the best, and get through these tough times in the moment!

See you on the field, and in the meantime, enjoy the jerseys and flag belts. If your young athlete has not received them yet, and you want them, please contact your coach or me and we will get them to you.
