Good Morning Saxon Parents
I wanted to touch base with all of you on where we are with Football this spring and going forward.
Saxon Youth Football will be running a 6-week spring program with a practice/scrimmage format. This will be for South Salem Feeder area students only. Currently we can only have 50 people at a time so it limits what we can do. The 6 weeks will run from the week of April 12 through May 22nd. The cost will be $20.00 and include a t-shirt. Registration will be open the first week of March on our website Saxonyouthfootball.com. We will also have registration open for coaches as well. If you are interested in coaching please register and our coach of coaches Valerie Geer will be in touch with you. This will be for ages K-8th grade. We have secured three city park locations for our program.
Middle Schools are offering a very limited 4 game season for 7th and 8th grades. We encourage you to get a tackle season in if you are inclined to do so. See your middle school websites for information.
High School football will be up and going in pads this week or next. They will be having a 6-week season with no spectators and with the district opting in since Marion County is still in extreme risk status. There are many extra requirements to meet so if you see anyone from the school board, our superintendent or other cabinet members please tell them thank you. This has opened the door for us to have a fall season in September of 2021. Hopefully by then we will get into the lowest risk categories which will make the fall season very doable.
We will be opening registration for our Fall 2021 season on April 1st. We will be offering Flag K-2nd grade, Rookie Tackle for 3rd and 4th grades and Tackle football for 5th through 8th grade. Our plan is to be back at South Salem High School for games and we will be practicing at other locations due to the continued construction at South Salem High School. Registration will be open on our website Saxonyouthfootball.com on April 1st.
Our board has been working very hard to continue to offer football to our South Salem Community. If you would like to get involved with our board we would love to have you! You can contact us at Saxonyouthfootball@gmail.com with questions.
