Hello All – reaching out to provide you with some updates regarding the 2020 season and to inform you that a response is required to this communication in order for us to determine a going forward plan for this season.
Please click the below links to see the latest statements from the Connecticut Department of Health (CT DPH) and the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC). It is important to stay informed of exactly what we are using to make the best decision for your family and the program. Exact details are in these communications and are subject to change.
The CT DPH and the CIAC met this weekend and agreed that conditioning activities can resume this week. Cohorts have been reduced from 15 to 10 people. There is no commitment that there will be tackle football this season. The CIAC is drafting a plan for future meetings with the CT DPH.
At this point, we do not know if we will be playing tackle, 7 on 7 passing, or flag football. The season may solely remain a conditioning program.
We are at the mercy of our governing bodies and the educational structure of our Region. How students attend school can directly impact our ability to move forward.
At the Board of Directors meeting tonight, we determined that your direct feedback is required for us to understand what our position will be regarding our ability to field teams this year.
Our position is that if we start the season, there will be no refunds once the season starts and no guarantees that we progress any further than a conditioning program.
Please respond to the Pomperaugwarriorsyf@gmail.com email with your clear decision to accept this condition or notify us that you are not willing to do so. If you choose not to move forward this season, please let us know if you are willing to donate your registration fees to the program, credit them to next season, or are requesting a full or partial refund.
We need your response by 8:00 PM Wednesday, August 26th, 2020.
We understand the wait and fluidity of this season has been very difficult. We greatly appreciate your feedback and comments from our last survey.
Thank you in advance for your timely responses.
Pomperaug Youth Football & Cheer President
