Good Afternoon ESYA family. It’s with much sadness to announce that the upcoming Football and Cheer season will be canceled due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. This was an unanimous decision made by the Mountain Valley Youth Football League and all teams involved. Refunds will be issued within the next few weeks. The board members of ESYA are working very hard to create some activities that our youth can still be involved in, while still adhering to all Mandates. We look forward to any ideas you may have and we wish all a healthy summer.
STATEMENT FROM MOUNTAIN VALLEY YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Effective July 10, 2020
The board of the Mountain Valley Youth Football League voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 Youth Football Season.
Following Bylaw, Article 3, Section 5A, the Executive Board has determined that the continued safety of our players, cheerleaders, coaches, referees, and families is paramount, during this unprecedented Coronavirus Pandemic.
This organization was established a number of years ago, to preserve our core beliefs of the safety of our youth (players, and cheerleaders). That directive stands ever-present in this unified organization.
This fluid situation of the Coronavirus is ever developing and changing, and considering all of the potential “known” safeguards that could be put in place, we cannot guarantee the safety of our organization.
The league, however, intends to continue to operate with a business focus, to provide aid to any of our struggling organizations, and potentially, work together, and generate revenue that will be used toward our 2021 season and beyond.
We are committed to continuing a rich history supporting youth sports, and even during these trying times, will demonstrate that unity, and band together to preserve our core values.
This was not an easy decision, but we feel it was the most prudent, to do this early enough for families to adjust, and plan the rest of their summer, and early fall.
We are ever vigilant in continuing this successful, social organization, and look forward to the continued support, and loyalty to the MVYFL Family!
We wish, only the best, and continued health and safety of our community, as we continue to manage through this pandemic.
The Executive Board of the Mountain Valley Youth Football League.
