Practice Guidelines

2020 AYL Football Safety Guidelines

 

Organized recreational sports

 

  • Organized youth or adult recreational sports leagues in groups of up to 50 players, excluding coaches and referees/umpires, are permitted.

**Some counties only allow up to 25 players

  • Spectators, like parents, are permitted for youth sports, so long as members from different households maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from each other.
  • Maintain contact information and team rosters and be prepared to support local public health contact tracing efforts if exposures occur. 
  • Do not share snacks or water, except in emergency situations.
  • Games that require extensive travel are strongly discouraged.
  • Practice social distancing of 6 feet from other households during drop off/pick up of players.
  • Masks are encouraged where feasible (i.e. by coaches, by spectators)
  • Temperature checks are encouraged before practices and games
  • Face Shields/Splash shields are encouraged for every player.

 

 

Participants

  • When not in active play continue to physically distance, staying at least 6 feet from members of other households.
  • Stay home other than getting  tested if you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Avoid recreating in public spaces if anyone in your household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Encouraged to wear a mask while recreating.  Abide by local health department orders.
  • Bring hand sanitizer to clean hands when soap and water is not available.

 

 

Player/Coach testing positive for COVID during the 2020 season.  

 

The AYL Football Policy is:

  • Should a Player/Coach test positive they are to be are to be in quarantined for 14 days and return only after a receiving a negative test
  • Team Coach will inform team (without naming child) that there was a player/coach that tested positive so Parents can be aware of the potential exposure
  • AYL Board will not assume the balance of the players have been exposed since there is no way to determine where the child did get exposed.  Thus the team can continue to practice/play as scheduled and does not need to quarantine.
  • Parents will continue to be responsible to watch over their child for any symptoms and should stay home if the child is sick.
  • Parents always have the right to decide if their child will continue to participate or not

NEW ROOKIE TACKLE FOOTBALL PROGRAM

THUNDER AND THE AYL ANNOUNCE THE NEW ROOKIE TACKLE FOOTBALL LEAGUE

The Thunder and the AYL are extremely excited to announce the creation of our ROOKIE TACKLE FOOTBALL LEAGUE for 2019!  The AYL Rookie Tackle Football League (RFL) has been designed as a bridge between Flag football and our traditional competitive tackle football program.  The RFL is focused on grades from 1st through 3rd only, provides full tackle experience, and is limited to 8 players per side and smaller roster sizes.

Features of the new RFL:

  • 8 players vs 8 players
  • Rosters limited to 16 players
  • Equal play required!
  • No Special Teams play, kick offs or punts!
  • Play on a 60 yard by 40 yard field (same as 4th grade)
  • Games are 20 plays per quarter at 1st & 2nd grade, 22 players per quarter for 3rd grade
  • Coaches on the field for both offense and defense
  • No Blitzing allowed
  • Full run and pass offenses allowed

The elimination of Special Teams play improves the safety of the game by removing the potential of long runs with two players colliding at high speed for the tackle.  The establishment of equal play provides the best possible development aspect for players new to tackle football.  In fact our AYL RFL will require the specific players must play an entire quarter, both as offense and defense, before any substions are allowed!

We plan to have informational information sent out very soon. In the mean time should you have any questions please contact Heath Dorris at  .
