2021 EYFL Season

Hello EYFL Families,

I hope this message finds you all healthy and doing well.

We’re are excited to re-open EYFL for the 2021 football!  Please know that EYFL is doing everything possible to identify best practices to safely get back on the field together. 

We are abiding by USA Football’s protocols and guidance set forth by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA), and Elkhart Community Schools.

Here is what we know as of today’s writing.

  1. This pandemic continues to linger and evolve and therefore subject to change.  We will update and share information as the situation changes.
  2. The health and safety of our players has always been our top priority; that has not changed. Our ability to play this fall begins with following the guidelines today and every day as we move forward.
  3. NIYFL league owns an Ozone Machine and every piece of the league’s equipment will have been sanitized prior to it being issued for use.
  4. We are currently planning for what evaluations, practices, and gamedays will look like.
    1. Incorporating cleaning and sanitiion measures for all equipment used.
    2. Adjusting drills for social distancing guidelines.
    3. Changing level of contact for all drills to “Air” or “Bags” until otherwise notified.
    4. The health and safety of our football community is vital, and we will not compromise this for any reason.
  5. There will be no “IN-PERSON” registration events for the 2021 season.  PLEASE COMPLETE ALL REGISTRATIONS ONLINE.

EYFL is offering three options for registration fee refunds if the 2021 season was to be cancelled prior to August 1.

Option 1 – Full and complete refund of 2021 registration fee

Option 2 – Donate a portion or all of the 2021 registration fee to EYFL to help ensure we can continue providing a fun, safe and rewarding experience for all players.

Option 3 – Roll over the 2021 registration fee into next year and apply it to your 2022 season registration.

There will be no refunds granted after football equipment has been issued.

I know I speak for all of our coaches in saying we miss our players and can’t wait to see them all again soon.  Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. Thank you.

Thomas Brown

President, EYFL
