NOTICEs 2020 #1
Dear RJYFCL Families,
We are all in the same boat wondering what is going on with Football & Cheerleading for the 2020 season. With Covid-19 being a big issue with contact sports we are at a point where there has not yet been a decision on the status of the 2020 season.
As soon as a decision is made We will inform you of what is going on. In the mean time if you have any questions or concerns please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for whatever answers are available.
Within the next few days we will be adding information to the website for you ! We will soon have all the registration forms available on the website for your use to help in the sign-up process..
In the meantime, PLEASE Stay safe and we inform you of what is happening.
Starting July 6, regions of the state that have entered Phase 3 of the state's reopening plan will be allowed to resume most outdoor sports with individual or distanced group training or activities, as well as organized low or no-contact group trainings such as sport camps and clinics.
Different sets of guidance are outlined on the Empire State Development website for different types of sports. For example, cross country running, golf, and singles tennis are considered lower-risk sports because of the ability to maintain more physical distance as compared to a higher-risk sport such as football or basketball, which has less physical distance between players by design.
For lower and moderate-risk sports, competitive team practices and some games or scrimmages in organized leagues or pick-up games are being allowed.
Lower-risk sports include, but are not limited to, individual running, batting cages, hunting, shooting, archery, golf or mini-golf, boating, singles tennis, rock climbing, individual swimming, individual crew, cross country running, bowling, disc golf, or ropes courses.
Moderate-risk sports include, but are not limited to, baseball, softball, doubles tennis, badminton, racquetball, water polo, gymnastics, field hockey, swimming relays, team crew, rafting, paintball, soccer, or non-contact lacrosse.
Higher-risk sports include, but are not limited to, football, wrestling, ice hockey, rugby, basketball, contact lacrosse, volleyball, competitive dance, or cheerleaading.
Competitive tournaments of multiple games or matches, especially ones that require travel, are still on hold for now.
All facilities are still prohibited from allowing indoor activities at this time.
