2020 Season Cancelled

Gentlemen,

The CIAC has determined it can no longer support a football season. The following statement just came out of the CIAC Office. Here is the link: https://www.casciac.org/pdfs/ciac09042020.pdf.

(An excerpt from that document: “…the CIAC Board of Control, in alignment with DPH recommendations, has determined that high risk full contact football is no longer a viable option.” )

Our preparations are not ended. We need to get together a few times in the year to keep up with things as an organization. I would like the Education Committee to come up with a schedule of “cohort meetings” on Wednesdays at J-Roos of no more than 25. We can assign dates to people and talk footall, rules and mechanics. I believe this is necessary.

The Shoreline League is supposed to have a season, but, frankly, I don’t know how they do legally, if the state health officials are nixing the idea.

Update 8/24/2020

Based on the lack of a decision on the start of the fall sports season , it has been decided to cancel  this Wednesdays Clinic until the situation is clearer . I will respond back as soon as more information is available.

NFOA UPDATE 8/20/2020

UPDATE : The on field clinics for ALL officials will be held on the next three ( 3 ) Wednesdays August 26th , Sept. 2nd and Sept. 9th on the field next to Doody’s on Rt. 80 in North Branford. In the event of rain the clinics will be moved to the Sports Plex also located on Rt.80 , south of Doody’s . In case weather is an  issue an e-mail will be sent out by 4 PM.

Rule books , case books and manuals will be available.

We are still awaiting the CIAC /DPH decision on proceeding with the season , so next Wednesday’s meeting will be held regardless of the decision .
