BREAKING NEWS – Tucson, AZ
Dear TYFSF Family,
First, we would like to take this opportunity to say we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We have been grappling with this decision for the past four months and have received feedback from community leaders and parents, with voices supporting both for and against the cancellation of our season.
The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has changed this year’s football season with uncertainties and lack of ability to guarantee the safety of student athletes, coaches, parents, and volunteers. This pandemic has brought on much pressure and concern throughout our community and our league. Along with Governor Ducey, we are concerned with the spike in positive cases here in Arizona, which has been projected to worsen in July and August. With this projection, the governor has pulled back on openings and delayed school start dates.
The date we set was for August 3rd and to do the current situation of high school football being pushed back until after August 20, and governor Ducey moving the school start date back, we all agreed to cancel the season!
So, after careful thought and deliberation, we as the Executive board have decided to cancel our 2020 season. There are many things that factored into our decision, but through this process, the health and safety of our players, volunteers, and families have remained our top priority.
The TYFSF website and Facebook page will remain up to date with information relating to TYFSF and the 2021 season.
Please Stay Healthy and Safe
