KYFL Families-
I am extremely excited to announce that we will officially be having a 2020 football and cheer season. There has been countless hours with both cheer and football trying to make sure we can provide a healthy and safe environment. With the season quickly approaching we are going to be preparing at a rapid pace. I know some people were holding off to hear firm dates and plans before registering. Below are the details we have:
*Registration will remain open until July 1st
*The cost for tackle football is $275
*The cost for sideline cheer only is $125 (explanation of sideline cheer below)
*The cost for sideline plus cheer is $180
*The cost for flag football is $75
*The cost for flag cheer is $75
*For those that have registered already you will receive a refund of the difference at equipment handout
*Practices will start on July 20th
*Football games will start late August(projected 08/22/20)
*Cheer competition will be xxx
*Team sizes will have stricter limits
*State and medical guidelines will be followed
*Website pricing has been updated but we are still working on the description and wording changes

Here are more details for those that want to know:
The TCYFL, along with other major sports and recreational organizations, have been in meetings with state officials, lawyers, and medical personnel trying to determine how and if sports can be played. The decision for youth football was made and we are cleared to play with restrictions. The official announcement by the state will come later next week and spell out the details. What can be shared right now is that you can expect procedures to be put in place to have your son/daughter’s temperature taken before every practice and game. There will be strict cleaning guidelines for equipment. There will be social distancing rules in place. The teams will have a maximum of 25 people including coaches. Kids will not be required to wear gloves or shields. TCYFL is looking to make this as normal as possible while still putting best practice guidelines in place that meet the CDC and state guidelines.

For cheer this year, in order to accommodate all of our KYFL families, we are offering three separate divisions. Flag Cheer will consist of kindergarten and 1st graders. They will practice Monday and ‪Tuesday 5:30 to 7pm with games on Thursday nights. Flag will not participate in the IRCA competition but instead will have a showcase during our Flag Football Playoffs. More information regarding this event will be sent out as the season starts. New this year, we will have a Sideline Cheer only division and a Competitive Division that will participate in one IRCA competition. Sideline Cheer will be similar to our previous seasons BUT will not compete in the IRCA event. Competitive cheer will compete in one IRCA event AND also attend all football games for the team assigned to them. Practice for both of these divisions will be Monday, Tuesday, and ‪Thursday from 5:30 to 7pm. Games will most likely be held on Saturdays and/or Sundays.

KYFL also wants to make sure everyone is aware of our financial assistance program. We understand that many families were faced with financial hardships due to the pandemic. We are here to help. We do not want kids to miss the opportunity to be part of KYFL because of the registration costs. You can contact me or another board member if financial assistance is needed. Your situation will remain confidential.
If you have any questions or concerns about this season please feel free to contact me at president@kyfl.com. I am happy to discuss any of these changes in greater detail.
I hope you are as excited for this season as I am. Let’s get ready for some football and GO Knights!!!
