This is an update following our board meeting last night (july 28, 2020) and where we stand on our season.
We will not be having a fall tackle season. However, we can under phase 2 have flag/7 on 7 (using flags) based on phase 2 rules. We voted unanimously last night as a board to move forward with this model.
We do not know if there will be a tackle season this year. We are waiting to hear if the OSAA will be coming out with a plan that pushes football back like Washington and California. Once we hear on that TVYFL will be deciding whether to run a tackle season that aligns with the high school season. If that is a yes, we will have a new registration for the tackle season towards the end of 2020.
Our plans are to run a fall flag/7 on 7 season that will include playing teams from West Salem, McKay, Sprague, and McNary. This could increase to include Salem Academy and North Salem. We do not know their intentions currently. We will be practicing 1-2 times per week and have one game per week. We currently have a field at a church and are working on a few other locations as we do not know if we will have access to Salem Keizer School District Facilities. We will have one day per week that we focus exclusively on linemen and development and skills specific to the line. We would then have our linemen play on teams and work on running, athleticism and staying in shape.
Our plan is to ask you to email email@example.com IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE YOUR CHILD PARTICIPATE IN THE FALL FLAG SEASON.
If your child IS GOING TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR FALL FLAG PROGRAM, we do not need to you to contact us. We will be putting together teams and will reach out to you in September
Our Goal is to run the season for 6 weeks or so and start sometime in mid-September. I will be meeting with the other Salem Associations to work out those details. They are having board meetings throughout the week and we will be able to start the work on logistics next week sometime. Saxon Youth Football has committees set up to deal with practices and skills development plans and will be meeting on August 10th and implementations of protocols for both practices and games. We will be providing a deliverable to parents that will clearly outline the responsibilities of parents, players, coaches, and Saxon Youth Football. We want our kids to play but we want to do it as safely as possible and your support and buy in on this piece will be very important to the success of this.
Thank you for your patience as we are in uncharted waters and as we continue to pivot as needed. Our board has worked tirelessly in the background to find solutions and ways to keep our kids playing and connected to football.
