As you are aware, youth sports have been and continue to be one of casualties of this pandemic. Our Board of Directors have been monitoring the situation since the first Stay at Home Order was issued with the hope that we will have a season this fall. While recent events are promising, the truth is we still don’t know what this means for us.
While the safety of our players, families, and all associated with White Bear Youth Football is first and foremost to us, we also know that participation in sports is an integral part in the development of our children.
With that being said, we are proceeding with our plan that there will be a season this fall with a slight modification in the registration. As you may have seen on our social media pages, we are opening our registration Monday May 18th but will notrequire any payment to register. Considering all of the uncertainty at this time we do not expect families to tie up money if we can’t guarantee a season. Once we can be assured there will be a season we will accept payments and we will, at that point, also offer an option to split the registration fee into two equal payments rather than paying the entire fee at once.
Because of multiple factors that will depend on how many players we have (jerseys, schedules, etc.) we are asking that if you think your child will play football this fall, please register so we can get an idea of how many players we will have. There is no obligation to play if you register; we understand these are unpredictable times.
Once the season is confirmed, we will proceed with an update on weigh-ins, tryouts & team formation. Until then, if there are any questions we can answer or concerns we can address, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The development of character, sportsmanship, and knowledge of their sport are the goals of any amateur sports program. Our children learn from our examples, and we as parents need to exemplify the highest level of sportsmanship by supporting all players, coaches, and referees.
Please review our full Parent and Fan Code of Conduct for a complete view of your important role supporting your player grow and learn the sport of Football.
Win or lose, every player has a responsibility to their team and to the sport to conduct themselves with good sportsmanship.
Please take time to have your player review these expectations and please help to reinforce the Player's Code of Conduct.
The White Bear Youth Football Association has suspended board meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will resume when the season dictates.
