Parents, the following announcement was made today on the Lafayette 56ers website. I am currently working with LCSS and the county health department to see what is possible for us to do in order to get the boys some activity.
LAFAYETTE YOUTH FOOTBALL COVID-19 UPDATE
To All Lafayette Youth Football Participants and Parents.
Thank you for your patience while the Board of Directors has been attempting to navigate these unique and uncertain times.
Since March, the Board of Directors has been working on a plan that would allow us to have a football season this fall. We have been working on protocols that would follow all Indiana Department of Health, Center for Disease Control, and Tippecanoe County Health Department guidelines for the Covid -19 Virus as it pertains to contact sports. Our procedures were developed with the safety of our participants, parents, and volunteers in mind. We soon discovered that the guidelines regarding social distancing, wearing of a mask, and sanitizing of all equipment was going to be impossible to follow.
The Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Football Season until the spring. We will be posting a new calendar as soon as possible.
