Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)
Hello NFL Flag Compton Family,
I hope that you are all safe and doing well. As you know, our Spring 2021 Season was originally planned to run from April thru June. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we tried to manipulate the Spring 2021 Season schedule so that we would still be able to play starting this month (April). Unfortunately, it does not appear that we will be able to hold the Spring Season this year as we have not received the "all clear" to open up from local school leaders. With that being said, the Spring 2021 Season will be canceled and rolled over into our Summer 2021 Season.
With the hope that things normalize, our Summer 2021 Season will take place with tentative dates of July 11th thru late August at Dominguez High School in Compton. All Spring, Summer, & Fall 2020 Season registrants as well as Winter & Spring 2021 registrants will have first priority and will be automatically placed in our Summer Season. However, if your child is unable to attend the Summer 2021 Season, you have the following options available to you:
1.  Roll over your paid registration to the upcoming Summer Season
2. Roll over your paid registration to a season of your choice (we typically run four seasons a year)
3. Receive a full refund
4. Move your paid registration to the NFL Flag Pasadena league's Spring Season which may still be able to happen by mid May. If the Pasadena league is not able to run their Spring Season either, we will revert back to the first three options
If you decide to rollover your paid registration to the Summer Season or to a season of your choice, we will refund you the difference between what you paid and the Super Early Bird pricing of $125.
You would need to let us know as soon as possible what your choice will be or you will automatically be moved to the Summer Season.

All coaches or potential coaches, please also reach out to us if you still desire to coach during the Summer 2021 Season. For any individuals that have not registered for the Summer Season as of yet, registration is currently open on our website and you may register anytime before July 1st. We will also be offering a handful of scholarships, as well as payment plans if needed (please email us).

*There will also be sport specific social distancing guidelines applied to all practices and game days. These guidelines will also include such practices as:
1. All parent/fans, staff, and referees will be required to wear some type of face covering
2. Only ONE parent/fan per player will be allowed into the venue
3. The game day schedule will be slightly altered so that players and parents/fans can leave the venue, before the next round of players and parents/fans are allowed into the venue
4. All players and parents/fans who are waiting for their field time, must wait in their vehicle until their time slot opens up
5. All game balls will be rotated out, wiped down, and replaced with a new ball at the end of the first half of a game, as well as at the end of each game
6. To help with contact tracing as much as we can in case of a positive test result, all individuals entering into the venue will need to provide their name and phone number to league staff
7. If you are sick, please do not show up to the field
8. Social distancing of at least 6 feet will be required by all parents/fans that attend the games
9. There will be no pre-game or post-game handshakes
These league mandated guidelines, as well as any federal, state, or local guidelines will be fully enforced and may be revised at any point by the league. Furthermore, the league may choose to adjust the age divisions as needed before the season starts.
In closing, we would like to reiterate that sports, and youth sports in general, are all central to our lives. They serve as an escape from everyday challenges, a tool for teaching our youth life lessons on and off the field, while also helping to provide social skills as well as athletic skills. Sports also provides a shared passion that unites people of all backgrounds. Together, we will get our youth athletes back on the playing field as soon as possible, and again be united by the power of Flag Football.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please continue to remain safe.
Sincerely,                                              
Patrick Williams                                   
Commissioner
