Hi Wildcats Families,
I hope this email finds you and your families well, I know youth football is not the most important thing on our minds during these difficult times, but I wanted to update you all on the upcoming Tackle, Flag, and Cheer seasons.
With Gov. Murphy announcing organized non-contact sports can begin June 22nd, and many HS Football programs beginning non-contact practice in July, I am encouraged there will be a football season this fall. Our league, the NJSYFL, has decided that we will follow the same guidelines that the high school teams will receive from the NJSIAA. This simply means whatever the state tells the high schools they can do, we will do. I can also assure everyone we will follow every recommended health guideline down to the smallest detail.
Knowing how many kids will be participating in the fall is the most important factor in preparing for the season in regards to equipment, supplies, coaches, etc. In a time of such uncertainty it would be helpful to get an idea of expected participation, therefore we are going to be opening registration on or before June 15th. Since I can’t guarantee we will be playing and I know these are tough times we will not be asking for the registration fee when you sign up. We will be asking for a deposit of $25 at the time of sign-up, this deposit will be fully refundable if there is not a season or if you simply change your mind about participating. Once we get the green light for a season we will ask for the full registration fee and the deposit will be applied to that. If you plan to play in the Fall I do ask that you sign up as soon as we open registration, usually we open in April and have a great sense of numbers by June. If you require financial assistance please contact me directly.
I plan on holding summer workouts for our registered athletes as soon as we get the ok to use Cornine Field. I really hope we have a season in the fall, I truly believe football is family and it would be great for us all to be together again watching our sons and daughters doing what they love to do.
I will let you know as soon as registration opens and I hope our numbers are better than ever!! Also, please forward this email to anyone you think may be interested in joining the Wildcats family.
All my best,
