NYSA Tackle Football Fegistration Open Until 8/31

Update you on our Tackle Football and Cheer programs for the fall of 2020! Both programs are back on for this fall. The decision to cancel football two weeks ago was not an NYSA decision. Rather, the league that we play in (Northwest Florida Youth Sports Alliance/NWFYSA) voted to cancel the season due to rising Covid concerns, especially in Escambia county.

We have been invited to play on a one year basis (we will return to NWFYSA next year) in the Panhandle Youth Football Association/PYFA. After much internal discussion amongst our football committee, we came to the cautious decision to participate in the PYFA for this season. We are outlining strict protocols for our teams and players and will be asking families to adhere to guidelines as well. The decision to play football and cheer this fall was made with the intent to give our athletes the opportunity to participate in  fall sports. Our Recreational and Travel Baseball as well as our soccer programs are open for registration now as well.

With that said, the PYFA is treating August as a ‘trial’ month. If Covid cases start to show amongst the teams, the League will cancel the 2020 season. I encourage anyone interested in playing football to check out their Facebook page at Panhandle Youth Football Association. Many of the protocols and guidelines that we will follow are taken from their page.

So, FOOTBALL & CHEER ARE BACK, so what does that mean?

If you previously registered for and paid for football and plan to play, no action is needed at this time. Information on conditioning and practices will be posted on Navarre Raiders Football FB page and at nysasports.com on the Football page.

If you previously registered for an paid for football and choose not to play this year, please email [email protected] to inform us of that decision and we will issue a refund check.

If you have not signed up for football and wish to sign up, you may do so at nysasports.com. When it comes to the payment section choose the drop down ‘pay by check’. Payment will not be required until we get the green light from PYFA (near the end of August) that we made it through the trial period and will play games.

If you previously registered and paid for Cheerleading and plan to cheer, no action is needed at this time. You will be contacted in the near future by your coach.

If you previously registered and paid for Cheerleading and do not plan to cheer, please email [email protected] of your decision and we will issue a refund check.

Every family needs to make the decision that is best for them. We realize that this situation has impacted different families in different ways. We respect whatever decision you make. Again, the decision to play football and have cheerleading was reached to provide an outlet for the athletes.

Football Conditioning will begin Tuesday, August 4th at 6:00 p.m. on the Main Football field at the NYSA. Parents (if you have not done so already) will need to sign a waiver upon arrival. All players will have their temperatures checked prior to each conditioning session and/or practice. Additional information regarding protocols and guidelines will be posted soon.

We realize that this is a lot of information. Please email questions or concerns to [email protected]. Again, we respect whatever decision is best for your families. We are living in unprecedented times and are attempting to offer recreation for our athletes.
