COVID-19 UPDATES

NFMJFA POLICY ON COVID-19 CANCELLATION REFUNDS updated 6/30/20

Due to the ongoing concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic we thought it was important to communicate our policy regarding refunds for the upcoming season if it were to be cancelled. We have created our plan to fit several different scenarios:

  • If the season is cancelled prior to our 1st scheduled regular season game (SCHEDULE TBD) you will receive a full refund of all monies and registration fees paid for the Fall 2020 season.
  • If the season is cancelled anytime after our 1st regular season game but prior to the 5th scheduled game you will receive a $100 credit toward your child’s 2021 Fall season registration fees.  
  • Once we have reached our 5th regular season game of the 2020 season you will no longer be entitled to any refunds as we would have completed over half of the Fall season.

In order to receive any of the above reimbursements all issued equipment (cheer uniforms, helmets, shoulder pads, practice pants, game pants, game jersey, equipment bags ,ect..) MUST be returned.

These reimbursements apply only to 2020 fall cheer and football season and any associated cancellations due the COVID-19 pandemic as directed by either by Pop Warner or Lee County Parks and Recreation Department. 




POP WARNER STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19 updated 5/12/20

As COVID-19 has impacted each region of the country differently, states are re-opening on varying schedules, with some already working to get back to pre-coronavirus levels of activity and commerce, while others are taking it slowly. But there certainly seems to be at least some light at the end of the tunnel. Wherever you are we hope you and your family are healthy.

As mentioned in our last update, we hope to have football, cheer and dance seasons this fall. In fact, we are planning on it and hope you are as well. But we need to take measured steps, accounting for the latest developments, just like schools, large public events and other sports leagues. That means we have to prepare for different scenarios, which include timing of the schedule and additional safety precautions for players, coaches, volunteers and families. We are working through it and hope to have a much clearer picture shortly.

We continue to take guidance from our Medical Advisory Committee, the CDC and local public health officials.

Without the ability to hold in-person registrations at this time, we encourage local Pop Warner administrators to utilize the relationship we have with Stack Sports (https://sportsconnect.com/pop-warner/) to set up online registration.

We will continue to provide regular updates to our programs as we receive more information from public health officials and state leaders. If there are any general questions, please visit popwarner.com and submit your inquiry.

We appreciate your support as we all continue to take the steps that we feel are most appropriate for our student athletes, their families and communities during this time!

Thank you,
Jon Butler, Executive Director

POP WARNER STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19

The health and safety of the Pop Warner community is always at the forefront of our decision-making and never more so than during this global pandemic. We are following the guidance of the CDC and public health officials to help reduce the exposure and transmission of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

As such, we are working closely with our partners and Pop Warner regional leaders nationwide to postpone all activity, including flag football and cheer practices, games, competitions, in-person registrations, league and regional meetings and award ceremonies until further notice. We are grateful to our regional and local Pop Warner leaders who have been outstanding in pursuing approaches to support their communities.

We appreciate this is a difficult and uncertain time for everyone. Decisions like this are not easy, especially for our young student athletes. We all need to contribute to the team effort to get through this unprecedented public health crisis. Adhering strictly to these measures is the best way to keep our communities healthy and we expect it will prove to be the quickest way to get our student athletes back into the classroom and onto the field. We will monitor the situation closely and share updates as they become available. 

We encourage you to go to the CDC website for the latest guidance, and hope you, your family and your community take the appropriate steps to remain healthy.
