Corona Virus Update - 07/14/2020

We are currently preparing for the 2020 Fall season with hope that the corona virus pandemic will have subsided by then. However, if this public health emergency continues to be a problem, when the season is set to begin in mid August, then we will cancel the season.

Any registration fees received would be fully refunded if we are required to cancel the season due to the pandemic.

As soon as return to play requirements for football are sent out by the MDH/Governor's office and CDH we will be sure to pass those directions along and we also will adhere to those recommendations during the season.

Why: Provide a safe environment for youth to learn the fundamentals of the game.

Develop traditional football skills (positions, formations, and plays) that cannot be achieved in non-padded flag leagues. TackleBar™ Football pad set optimized for safety and mobility.
