On 7/29/2020 BGYFL decided to cancel the 2020 football season. We are very excited that we still have the opportunity to cheer on our EG Competition Cheer team this season. As this news about football is devastating to all of us, the EGYF board wants you to know we will be informing all of our parents and players about information including refunds as soon as we get it. If people use the payment plan the scheduled 8/1 payment will not be processed at this time. Thank you for your patience during this time.
REGARDING THE 2020 SEASON
Hi all - I know there are a lot of questions about the 2020 Eagles season, especially in light of TCYFL making the difficult decision to cancel their season.
AS OF NOW, THERE WILL BE A 2020 SEASON FOR BGYFL.
Practice is set to begin on August 17th and it will likely follow our protocols for practice when school is in session of 3 days a week, although with strict COVID guidelines.
On Monday, BGYFL members participated in a call to discuss how to move forward. The teams on the call want to play. We all want a 2020 season. A decision was made to regroup on July 31st for an official Go or No Go decision. We will communicate that decision ASAP.
There are a lot of factors at play here, the most important being the ruling from the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) on how to proceed. (Read more here: https://www.ihsa.org/default.asp)
In the meantime, if you know kids who were in TCYFL who are looking for a team, let them know we'd be happy to take them in this year.
Any questions, please contact Jeff Smith (President, EGYFL), Robb Barrett (VP) or Matt Berkowitz (League Representative). You can also communicate with us through this page
Thank you for your patience, your support and for being proud Eagles
