2020 Fall Season Announcement

Dear Moorpark Musketeer Youth Football and Cheer (MMYFC) Families,

On behalf of the MMYFC Board, we hope all of you are doing well and thank you for your continued patience.  As previously mentioned, we have been monitoring decisions across California including the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section (CIF-SS) and the California State Board of Education.  Furthermore, we have still been patiently waiting for direction from the State of California regarding youth football and cheer.  As we have found, there will not be anything provided until the State of California reaches Stage 4 of their reopening plan and we are currently still in Stage 2. 

On Monday, July 20, 2020, CIF-SS decided all Southern Section High School Fall sports will be postponed until the start of January 2021.  The following is the proposed football schedule which will be voted by CIF-SS on August 13, 2020:

First Practice Date - Monday, December 14, 2020
Week 1 Contest Date – Friday, January 8, 2021
SOP Date – Monday, February 8, 2021 (32 days)
Week 10 Contest Date – Friday, March 12, 2021 (64 days)
CIF Southern Section Playoffs – March 19, March 26, April 2, 2021
CIF Southern Section Championship Finals – Friday/Saturday, April 9/10, 2021 CIF State Championships Bowl Games – Friday/Saturday, April 16/17, 2021

It should be noted that this is a proposed schedule and is subject to change should the circumstances warrant.

Due to the continued increases in COVID-19 cases in Ventura County and the surrounding counties, the State of California still remaining in Phase 2, insurance concerns, and the recent announcement from CIF-SS, it is with a heavy heart to announce the MMYFC Board has voted to cancel the 2020 football and cheer season but has voted to follow the CIF-SS proposed football/cheer season staring in January 2021, should the circumstances allow. 

Paraphrasing from our Mission Statement and further in our Five Pillars of Commitment, the health and safety of our players, cheerleaders, coaches and families has always been our number one priority and we will not waver in this stance.  Unfortunately, this pandemic has forced us to face extraordinary circumstances beyond our control.  This decision was not easy and we are saddened as all of us worked diligently toward a 2020 season.  However, the safety of our young athletes in both football and cheer, our families, our coaching staff, and community cannot be unduly jeopardized during a pandemic such as COVID-19.  Some of us have experienced COVID-19 including one of our board members or know of someone who has.  Although the recovery rate is high, we would not wish anyone to experience what we have witnessed others go through. 

It is our sincere hope that we will able to have our 2020 season at the beginning of 2021, with our normal season schedule returning in the Fall of 2021.  This is allowed under the new law effective January 1, 2021:  AB 1, Cooper. Youth athletics: California Youth Football Act.

Although the Pacific Youth Football League (PYFL) is set to meet on July 28th, 2020, to discuss the 2020 Youth Football/Cheer season, MMYFC has decided to take action now so that everyone can plan accordingly.  We will provide you with a refund should you choose or we will apply the amount already paid to the January 2021 season.  If you would like a refund, please send an email to board .  In the subject line, please write the participant’s first and last name with REFUND after their name.  (For example:  Subject: Jason Smith, REFUND).  PLEASE NOTE: If you choose a refund, you might not receive any previous special or early bird pricing discounts for the proposed January 2021 season as we cannot guarantee it.  Refunds are being discussed and will be decided upon in the next couple of weeks including refunds less the processing fees that MMYFC currently covers.

Thank you all for your continued support of our youth and of our program. 

Sincerely,

Your MMYFC Board
