Texas Health and Human Services COVID-19

We first want to say thank you for all of your messages and feedback on the Spring season.  When we started this league we wanted to create a program based on suggestions and feedback from the community and a league families want to be a part of.  As a small business that relies so heavily on our community, your feedback and support are very important to our family.

After speaking with a good number of coaches and parents via phone and email, we have decided to indefinitely postpone the Spring season.  Due to the fluidity of the virus, an upward trend in cases, and the uncertainty of field availability within our local communities, we have deemed this to be the best course of action. Obviously, the safety of our players and families is of the most importance.  Although we realize a good number of you wanted to play, it is our social responsibility not to at this time.  We will all be back on the field before you know it and appreciate the game even more.


Out of your registration fees, the majority has been spent already on equipment, general liability insurance, marketing, staff, background checks, and league fees, etc. as we started to work on our Spring season back in November.   As a community program, National Flag Football operates each location on very small margins of less than $7 per player and we can assure you we are not making a profit during this season and suffering major losses that can never be recouped.  However, we know the right thing to do is something versus nothing, which some youth sports leagues have chosen to do.  COVID-19 has caused all of us to adjust and accept unwarranted changes. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a full credit or refund given how close we were to kicking off the season but are aware everyone has been effected differently so would like to offer the following options:


1.      Future Credit: credit good for a future season up to one year (per player). 
* If you purchased any additional merchandise, that amount will also be credited to your account.


2.      Refund: refund issued to the credit card used to register (per player).
* If you purchased any additional merchandise, that amount will also be refunded to your account.

 

3. Donate Your Registration: Donate the remainder of your funds to offer scholarships for those in need and ensure the quality of the program you are used to is maintained into the future.  We truly appreciate those families who have offered this and thank all of you in advance.

If you chose a refund it will be processed but can take up to 6 - 8 weeks for the refund to show up on your credit card.  If the original credit card is no longer valid, we will have to issue a manual check and send to the address referenced in the billing section.  Please be advised we have to have all refund requests completed in a batch.  These responses will be reviewed weekly.  Again, we sincerely apologize we were not able to accommodate all requests and preferences and hope you continue to support us in the upcoming seasons. 

We are working with a reduced number of staff to be financially responsible; we will answer inquiries if needed prior to making your decision.  We just ask for patience while we work through higher than normal volume of questions due to the circumstances.

From our family to yours, we hope you are staying healthy, safe, and happy.

National Flag Football Families,

We hope you and your family are doing well. We know these are crazy times, and we are sure you have a ton of questions; flag football is probably not in the top 100. However, we just wanted to give you a heads up on where we stand at the moment. 

On March 19th, Governor Greg Abbott issued a series of Executive Orders. These orders, among other things, has temporarily closed our schools through next Friday, April 3rd. Following the CDC's guidelines and recommendations, we will need to postpone all leagues as necessary to a starting date that aligns with both the CDC, state and local municipalities. The good news is that we will not be canceling our leagues.

In the end, we are at the mercy of the school districts and parks and recreation departments of the communities that we operate in. Ultimately, the safety or our children is our top priority. Due to the fluidity of this situation, we will keep you updated with the latest developments. 

At this point, credits for future seasons will not be given, for we are in a wait and see mode. On the bright side, your uniform and equipment have been received. We are still accepting late registrations and are hopeful for a May start to our season.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we will send some emails in regards to practice drills you can work on with your athlete in preparation for the upcoming season.

We are a team. We are all in this together. Everybody can play their part. Please look out for your friends and neighbors as you protect your family.

Hello National Flag Football families,

As was communicated earlier this week, the Coronavirus is taking a toll on communities and school districts across the country.  Many communities are eliminating large gatherings of people, temporarily shutting down fields, and advising members to stay home. In support of these initiatives and safety of our families, we have decided to delay the start of our season by 1 month.

This will be our new tentative season schedule...

New Registration Deadline - April 19th
Meet & Greet/Game 1 - May 17th
Off For Memorial Day Weekend - May 24th
Game 2 - May 31st
Game 3 - June 7th
Game 4 - June 14th
Game 5 - June 21st
Game 6 (or Madden Playoffs) - June 28th

*Austin League* - Your games will take place on Saturdays on the same weekend listed above. For example, your Meet & Greet/Game 1 will take place on the 16th.

We will also be pushing back our registration deadline to April 19th
. So if you're not registered, there is still time to sign up!

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with frequent updates on the logistics of the upcoming season.  The Spring season is not cancelled! We have every intention of having a Spring season, it's just a matter of when we get started. We're sure everyone will be ready to get out of the house and take the field as soon as possible!

Due to the fluidity of this situation, please remain patient as we are making decisions related to individual leagues on a case by case situation.  We will rely highly on the local municipalities' guidance for many of these decisions and will apprise all future changes as soon as we are made aware of them.

Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

In the meantime, The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is the same as preventing the cold and flu, and include:

1.    Frequently wash your hands with soap and water.

2.    Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

3.    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

4.    Stay home when you are sick.

5.    Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

6.    Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with regular household cleaning spray or wipes.

7.    Follow the CDC's  (Center for Disease Control) recommendations for using a facemask.  The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory disease, including Coronavirus.  Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.

Due to the fluidity of this situation, please remain patient as we are making decisions related to individual leagues on a case by case situation.  We will rely highly on the local municipalities' guidance for many of these decisions and will apprise all future changes as soon as we are made aware of them.

We appreciate your participation in the league and will again be as transparent as possible while we work through this Coronavirus Pandemic.
