An important announcement from CFA regarding COVID-19 - Updated 1/15/21

Dear CFA Families,

Happy New Years to all!

We hope you are all in good health. Thank you for your continued patience as we continue to follow the recommendations of our local, state, and government leaders regarding social distancing.

At this time, there have been no changes to the county/state guidelines in regards to Youth Sports:

For Schools and Childcare | Coronavirus (cchealth.org)

*Please click on link for the Youth Sports Category

"As you may know, Contra Costa County is still in the deep purple tier of the COVID19 pandemic restrictions. There have been no changes in the activities permitted by the Contra Costa County Health Dept. for youth sports since late last year and the City of Oakley follows their guidelines. This means that games and practice are still not permitted. Individualized skills training camps with stable cohorts and specific protocols are permitted ..." - City of Oakley 1/14/21

There are major restrictions due to COVID by our City and State that are preventing us from any scrimmage or game activity. We are still limited to running skills training camps in small groups, where the groups must remain together through the duration of the camp.

As an organization, we have a responsibility to our families to ensure their safety and follow all safety guidelines of the city and school district facilities. At this time, all youth organizations are restricted from having practice or games.

Due to the recent stay at home order and increase in COVID cases, the anticipated season start date may be pushed back to February/March, but plans are still in the works to begin as soon as given the authorization to do so. We will have a season and will continue to serve our CFA families once it is safe to do so. Registration will be available once we have a clearer idea on a start date. No fees will be collected during the registration process, but parents will be allowed to pre-register.

We will have a youth skills training program available until we can begin a new season. Please check our website in the near future for any updates on registration for the season, as well as any skills training and competition events.

We will not be responding to e-mails regarding refunds at this time. We have sent out several e-mails and have explained why we have a policy in place that addresses refunds, especially during times like this. (see link below)

E-Mail to Spring 2020 Registered Players regarding future credit.docx

If you were registered for the Spring 2020 season, your payment will be credited towards any future CFA flag football season or any CFA football camps, training, or events. The credit will allow you to use it for any one season or towards other CFA paid events. The credit is also transferable.

The pandemic we are facing has affected everyone, including our young youth organization. As with all seasonal youth sports programs, the preparation for the season begins many months in advance, in addition to many expenses to keep the program going season after season, such as advertising, business related operating expenses (insurance, administration costs, equipment, etc) and other expenses that people do not consider as part of running a non-profit organization. For our Oakley league, all the custom uniform shirts had been ordered and paid for. Shorts for all 3 leagues also purchased. All of which were non-refundable. These are all expenses we cannot recoup.

Therefore, we are asking our CFA families to please be patient at this time until we can get back to normal and start playing games again. Please help us keep our flag football program alive. With your patience and understanding, we will overcome this and get back to playing sports.

We are hoping to hear back from the school districts regarding availibility of fields for our Concord and San Ramon Leagues. They are currently not taking any field reservation through 2020. Please check back for any update.

Thank you for your continued support and kindness as we get through this together.

Sincerely,

Your California Football Academy Board and Staff

 

 
TESTIMONIALS
Just a Thank You note-
... it was a great experience for the whole family.
We practiced 3-4 days a week and the boys were on a Championship team-Go Panthers!
They would write journal entries in school about football, practice plays with their dad and impress their grandpa with catching skills.
Playing football means much more than a game on a field- it became a part of their identity and how they describe themselves. My boys are healthier- physically, mentally and emotionally healthier from this program.
Thank you,
R. P.
