    SAMFA Updates in the Midst of Covid-19

    To our valued SAMFA players, parents and supporters:

    This message is to officially declare that the 2020 football season is BACK with a completely different look!

    While 2020 has been anything but normal, it is with absolute optimism and excitement that SAMFA coaches, organizers and volunteers prepare for a season that will undoubtedly provide unique and lasting memories.

    For months now, the entire football community has been deep in discussions, brainstorming sessions and health and safety meetings to determine the safest and most rewarding playing experience circumstances will allow. These meetings conclude and hopefully final decisions will be made by the end of the week.

    By this time next week, all SAMFA athletes and families will be contacted by their coaches with information and options regarding the season ahead. In that communication, you will learn details on the new game play structure, practice schedule, practice routine, team plan and, most importantly, the team and league-wide COVID-19 protocols and regulations that will be in place to provide a safe and rewarding 2020 season.

    If you feel uneasy about the season ahead, we ask that you contact your direct coach. They will be able to answer questions and address any concerns or fears you may have.

    Additionally, our registration fees and fundraising commitments will be adjusted to reflect the modified game play. While it is somewhat of a nuisance, we will be cancelling and refunding your current registration and asking you to re-register under the new fees and requirements. Your coach is happy to explain this process to you in further detail as well.

    In closing, we thank you for your patience through the spring and summer months as SAMFA, the Capital District Minor Football Association, Football Alberta and Football Canada worked diligently to create the safest and most rewarding football experience for our players.

    We hope that the memories made in 2020 are long-lasting and rewarding beyond circumstance.

    Thank you,

    Rob Patrick
