National Flag Football Families,

We hope you and your family are doing well. We know these are crazy times, and we are sure you have a ton of questions; flag football is probably not in the top 100. However, we just wanted to give you a heads up on where we stand at the moment. 

On Monday, March 23rd, Governor Roy Cooper issued Executive Order No. 120. This order, among other things, extended school closure through May 15th.  Following the CDC's guidelines and recommendations, we will need to postpone all leagues as necessary to a starting date that aligns with both the CDC, state and local municipalities. The good news is that we will not be canceling our leagues.

In the end, we are at the mercy of the school districts and parks and recreation departments of the communities that we operate in. Due to the fluidity of this situation, we will keep you updated with the latest developments. 

At this point, credits for future seasons will not be given, for we are in a wait and see mode. On the bright side, your uniform and equipment has been received and packed. We are working with our carriers to see an effective solution to get you your gear so that you can begin practicing and playing at home.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we will send some emails in regards to practice drills you can work on with your athlete in preparation for the upcoming season.

We are a team. We are all in this together. Everybody needs to play their part. Please look out for your friends and neighbors as you protect your family.

Hello National Flag Football families,

As been communicated earlier this week, the Coronavirus is taking a toll on communities and school districts across the country.  Many communities are eliminating large gatherings of people, temporarily shutting down fields, and advising members to stay home. In support of these initiatives and safety of our families, we have decided to temporarily postpone our spring season in your community. 

This brief pause will allow us time to evaluate and process the current situation more thoroughly and to receive guidance from our community partners, local school districts, and elected government officials. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with frequent updates on the logistics of the upcoming season.  The Spring season is not cancelled! 

In the meantime, The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is the same as preventing the cold and flu, and include:

1.    Frequently wash your hands with soap and water.

2.    Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

3.    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

4.    Stay home when you are sick.

5.    Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

6.    Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with regular household cleaning spray or wipes.

7.    Follow the CDC's  (Center for Disease Control) recommendations for using a facemask.  The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory disease, including Coronavirus.  Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.

Due to the fluidity of this situation, please remain patient as we are making decisions related to individual leagues on a case by case situation.  We will rely highly on the local municipalities' guidance for many of these decisions and will apprise all future changes as soon as we are made aware of them.

We appreciate your participation in the league and will again be as transparent as possible while we work through this Coronavirus Pandemic.
