LAFA Board Decison to Cancel 2020 Season
Dear Parents and Participants of LAFA,
Considering Governor Wolf’s recommendation this past week regarding fall sports, as well other youth football program’s decisions on their programs and the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation, the LAFA Board has voted and made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Flag, Tackle and Cheerleading season. The LAFA Board feels it is in the best interest and safety of the league’s participants not to hold a 2020 season. The Board reviewed and considered a variety of data points and input from various sources before making this decision. Guidance that was considered came from the CDC, the State of PA, the WCASD, the PIAA, various college conferences (PSAC) and other local youth leagues including CYO to name a few. We discussed numerous scenarios including a set of return to play guidelines for the upcoming season but ultimately we believe there was no clear way to protect our participants and volunteers fully against COVID-19 and the risk outweighed the benefits of having a season. The ultimate deciding factor was keeping our kids safe and allowing them the opportunity to return to play in 2021.
We understand this is a very difficult situation for all of us, especially the kids, and we hope we can all get back to some normalcy very soon and back to the game, we all love! Be safe and see you next fall!
Tackle - $220
Flag - $175
Cheer - $100

Registration Fee Assistance Program
Our Founder, Mr. Kelly, knew that teamwork was a valuable lesson learned through the game of football. We honor that tradition of teamwork by working with our community to provide assistance so that any youth in our area, that has a desire to play the game, has the support to do so.
