2020 Season Updates

BJB Families -
 
Our league - American Youth Football and Cheer League (AYFCL) - released the following statement today:
 

The AYFCL’s top priority is to maintain a safe and secure environment for our participants, coaches, spectators, officials and staff. 

 

The AYFCL will follow guidelines set by the state and by Section V for practice, games and cheer competitions.

 

This means that dates are subject to last minute changes.  

 

The AYFCL has currently set August 24 for a start date of the 2020 season.

 
Accordingly, the start of our season has similarly been pushed back to Monday, August 24.  If we hold on this timeline, the league will meet in late August to determine the appropriate season schedule (likely to include 6 regular season games and potentially one round of playoffs).  Also under review is the appropriate return to play protocols that will be put in place upon the return of our cheerleaders and football players, for which we're seeking guidance from both USA Football and Section V.  Everything is under review, including health screening, face masks for cheerleaders/coaches/volunteers, full helmet face shields for players, sanitization of athletes and equipment, etc.  And certainly this year will see no "team" water bottles or any similar shared items.  We're also likely to see a limitation on the number of spectators, subject to regulations from both the state and the school district.
 
Registration is open.  Again, should you register and the season does not go forward, you will receive a full refund. 
 
We will keep you posted with updates as to schedule and procedures as we move forward.  We hope we're able to have a 2020 season, but need to make sure we can do so in a safe manner for our athletes and our families.
 
Finally, our Board is in the process of discussing a name change away from "Jr Barons", given the recent decision of the school district to drop the "Barons" nickname.  Again here, we will keep you informed of any developments in this regard.
 
Stay tuned!
