The Mountain West Youth Football League recently met and the decision was made to offer youth tackle football again beginning in August 2021. The town representatives have begun the process of planning the 2021 youth football season, including the recruitment of players and coaches. On-line registration for the 3rd/4thgrade league and the 5th/6thgrade league should be up and running by the end of this week. We are excited to be playing football this fall!
The decision to move forward was made inlight of three considerations. First, the Colorado High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) has sanctioned football competition and several schools in our area are playing a spring season. In addition, most of the schools in our area are conducting in-person classes and have developed safety protocols to protect students and staff. Finally, many of our community members have received a Covid vaccination and it is anticipated that the great majority of our families will have done so by August.
The Mountain West Youth Football League will be meeting mid-May to finalize some of the critical details and more information will be forthcoming at that time relative to coaching staff, practice venues, and dates of competition. In the meantime, please visit the website and begin the registration process. Talk up the season with your child’s friends and neighbors so that there will be a solid core of players signed up for next fall’s competition. After missing out on a year of games, we have a lot of making up to do! We’re looking forward to seeing all of you next fall!
