In anticipation that there will be a season this year, the Morris county youth football league has decided on a delayed start to the season. This means no official practices will be held before September 1. Games will not begin before October 2.
As a program some of the issues we are facing are the following;
1. Greatly reduced practice facilities (at this time we will not have to access to ANY school facilities)
2. Loss of a home game facility
3. The challenges associated with equipment distribution.
4. Limited rosters.
5. Additional costs due to; increased sanitization requirements, inability to operate a snack stand, inability to conduct fundraising activities due to interpersonal contact.
We are looking for answers regarding personal liability for board members and coaches. We are working to develop return to play protocols, sanitization protocols and ways a season can be conducted in the midst of all this.
We would love it if all of this was simple and as a board, it is simply not possible to make a complicated decision at this time. The heath and safety of the athletes continues to be our main focus. The TSA board is in contact every day and working hard to evaluate the best path forward.
To help us move forward, we ask that any parent of an athlete already registered, please send an email to email@example.com
if you plan to withdraw. We will assume any parent who doesn’t respond continues to wish to play. At this time, flooding the TSA inbox with suggestions won’t be helpful. Helping us determine if we have viable rosters is the best way to lend a hand at this time.
Additionally, any athlete not yet registered who wishes to play, please reach out at this time using the same email address.
As soon as we have more to share, we will provide an update here.
