We concluded our 2020 season on Sunday, October 11th on a beautiful Fall day with great crowds and five grade level champions. It was a season that some did not think would happen, but we persevered and took care of the things we could control on a daily basis and got it done.
Thanks to all the coaches, players, referees, spectators and board members of our associations we gave people a chance to be a part of this special season. It was great to see everyone out watching youth football and having a good time each game.
We had more than 700 players, coaches and referees in our league and we saw minimal impact of the coronavirus, but we also took it one day at a time and adjusted where needed. Congrats to everyone for helping in making this season possible.
We will see you next year!
Please go to Grade Level League Pages for Information:
The 2019 season served four great football communities with grade 2-6 tackle football. We had 44 teams with approximately 800 players, 175 coaches, and 30 game officials. We also aligned with Trusted Coaches and USA Football again this season as well as the Youth 1st Initiative at all grade levels.
In 2020 due to Covid-19 we served 33 teams and 3 associations as participating associations create play preparedness plans, day of contest protocols by association and by league and we successfully completed the season by mitigating risk to the players, coaches, officials, and spectators with minimal impact to the schedule.
