2020 Football Preseason Meeting Updates

Football is resuming and we have updates for you! There is a lot of information, so be sure to read through all of it.

We will have two virtual meetings (links to follow soon) on the following dates and times:

Friday (9/11) 7:00pm – COVID-19 Mechanics Discussions

Monday (9/14) 7:00pm – Football Season Points of Emphasis and Rule Changes

We will record these and make them available to the membership. However, we encourage you to log in for the live presentation so you may ask questions as necessary. We may have an in-person option for a meeting. Please stayed tuned.

Because of this, we will not be able to host officiating gear vendors. Please take the time now to check your gear and order online anything you might now to prepare for the rapidly approaching season.
