COVID-19 Updates

The FFL Fall timeline has been adjusted slightly to line up with the new UIL calendar/guidelines. The Calendar has been updated on our website and was emailed to the league. We will be announcing our Return-To-Play guidelines soon!

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we pivot and respond to the constantly and rapidly changing situation with COVID-19. Please continue to follow our website and social media for updated information.

The FFL is aware that the UIL has just released a revised Calendar and guidelines for the 2020-2021 School Year, you can find that information here: https://www.uiltexas.org/policy/covid-19

The Board is having an emergency meeting tonight to create a new fall timeline in order to align with the new guidelines. We will have more information for you as soon as possible!

The FFL is aware of the changes to the FISD Calendar and we are working on a Return-to-Play Plan that we will be announcing soon. No final decisions have been made due to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 , however we plan to follow the FISD and UIL's lead on outdoor sports and we are still waiting to hear their recommendations.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this tumultuous time. Please continue to follow our website and social media for updated information.

In light of the governor's announcement about youth sports we are super excited to solidify some dates for the upcoming Fall FFL season. Here are the dates to keep in mind: The registration deadline is June 14, 2020. All football players, cheerleaders, and coaches must be registered and paid by this date in order to be placed on a team for the fall. Although we are happy to see things opening up, we've decided to play it safe this year. We will NOT be holding our annual FFL Combine event this year. Uniform fitting will be performed by team coaches, and equipment fitting will be done by the FFL Board at a date and time to be determined (likely in July).

This year's 5yo flag, 6yo flag, and tackle football draft will be held on June 20. The cheerleading draft will be held on June 27. The 7yo-11yo Air Assault draft will be held June 22-23. The drafts will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Coaches will be sent a separate email next week explaining how the draft process and jersey design will work this year.

We know you've been waiting things out, and we don't blame you. But if you are planning to participate in the FFL this fall, it's time to get registered and secure your spot in the league!

Updated Dates for the 2020 Season are on our Calendar and Listed on the Registration Page!

May 6, 2020

The FFL Board is committed to providing the best experience possible for your kid(s) and family.  We are working hard to make preparations for the 2020 Fall Football and Cheer season, keeping health and safety a priority. Details for this season, as well contingency plans, are being discussed. Several options for our pre-season activities including, but not limited to, holding an outdoor Combine, virtual fittings, and a Zoom draft. All options will adhere to social distancing requirements set by our city and/or state policies and procedures.

We will essentially be aligning with the school district. If the kids are in a regular (go in-person to class) school situation then we will be playing football. If school is delayed, we will delay our season.

Please rest assured that should the season be cancelled for any reason we WILL REFUND all registration fees.

In Summary:

  • We are planning to have a Fall 2020 Football Season to begin on time, the first game is scheduled for September 12, 2020.
  • We are following FISD’s lead.
  • If the Season is cancelled your registration fee WILL be REFUNDED.

To ensure our success, we need your registration commitment, as it will help us best determine timely season logistics - Teams per Division, uniform orders, etc. Scholarship applicants will need to register as well. Please reach out if you have any questions and we will be posting updates here as we have them.

Stay Safe

Updated Dates for the 2020 Season are on our Calendar and Listed on the Registration Page!
