2020 Football Registration is OPEN!

Are You Ready For Some Football!!!!!  We Know We Are! 

In anticipation of the upcoming 2020 Football season, but keeping in mind the current circumstances regarding Covid-19, the SJSA Outlaws want to open up registration for football, but will not be accepting payments at this time.  This will allow us to plan and create teams so that we are ready to hit the field running when State and Local Officials deem it safe with all designated safety protocols in place.

Click on either age appropriate logo below to look for more information and to register your player for the 2020 season.  Even though we are not accepting payments at this time full payment will be due prior to the first practice.

Spring Sports Update

April 29, 2020

 

South Jeffco Families!
 
We hope you are all doing well.
 
We have finally received information giving us a better idea of what the state is planning regarding youth sports allowing us to provide a brief update.
 
The state is hoping to allow youth sports to resume in June, however they are going to hold off making a firm decision until the middle of May at the earliest (we assume they will make the determination after they see if new cases of Covid-19 remain flattened after the Safer-At-Home mandates are implemented).
 
Please know that we are continually working on all possible contingency plans for each sport currently affected so that once we are given a firm date will be able to proceed promptly with whatever plan(s) is appropriate for each sport.
 
As always, we are available by email on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at office@southjeff.org.
 
Stay Healthy!

SJSA Families -

     For more than 50 years the South Jeffco Sports Association (SJSA) has brought our community together through youth sports. We know it has been a trying time and our hearts go out to everyone affected by the Coronavirus, Covid-19, Pandemic. As the Covid-19 issue remains ever changing, the health and well-being of our families has remained our top priority. 

FAQ’s 

When will you start the season (Baseball, Minors, Softball, Boys Lacrosse and Girls Lacrosse)? 

We are currently following all state and local guidelines including Jeffco Schools and CHSAA, which has delayed their seasons until April 18th, 2020. We cannot predict what is going to happen in the coming weeks and we think it is irresponsible to attempt to predict what will happen. We can assure you this - it is our intention to have a season….we just don’t know when we will be given the all clear to begin. 

Why not just cancel?

There are several reasons not to cancel:

  • We believe that when this situation ends it will be critical for our kids, coaches and parents, but especially the kids, to return to some form of normalcy. This Covid-19 pandemic has been and continues to be traumatic for some.  We are a strong community that thrives on outdoor time and sports and we will need this season together to heal and recover as a community.
  • Keeping the seasons will help our local small businesses, sports clubs and officials. End-of-season parties (at local establishments), part-time officials, and youth sports organizations are a critical part of a strong community. Now is the time to stand together and make sure we stay strong! 
  • Cancelling puts all non-profit youth sports organizations at risk of not being able to offer all of the services we have had in the past and in some cases, shutting the doors of youth sports organizations permanently. 

 Can I get a refund?

At this time, NO clubs in the AYL (Arapahoe Youth League, governing league to some SJSA sports) and NO sports within SJSA will be offering refunds. There are a couple reasons for this.

  1. We have already spent most of your registration fees on non-recoverable expenses including: insurance, field permits, training, sports equipment, uniforms, scheduling, etc. 
  2. Our full intention is that we WILL have a season….it will just start late and may look different than usual. 

What will that season look like?

Every idea is on the table. Through our area leagues and within our individual sports we have a lot of creative, smart people working to ensure we have solutions to every scenario. We cannot know what is going to happen over the next few weeks and thus cannot predict the solution we will use. It will be different for each sport; i.e., condensed season, more double headers, tournament play every weekend, using practice times for games….there are a lot more ideas and we will let you know what we decide as soon as we can. 

We know this is a time where kids and families are anxious or even scared and worried about the future. We understand as we all have families and concerns, too. We want nothing more than to get our kids and families back together and feel “normal” at the fields, gyms or baseball diamonds for some fun, exercise and great competition with the community we love. 

On behalf of the entire SJSA Board of Directors, we want to thank you for putting your trust in us and we appreciate the support for your local community-based, non-profit youth sports organization. We are committed to working through these challenging circumstances together. 

Wishing you all good health - 

The Executive Board and Board of Directors of South Jeffco Sports Association

3 Ways your child will benefit from playing youth football!

3 ways your child will benefit from playing youth football

Players benefit physically, socially and emotionally from playing football

Football is blue-collar America. It’s working class, working together.

In this game – America’s favorite game – there are no isolation plays that cast a team aside. Nor are there intentional walks to avoid an obstacle.

In life, like in football, the easy route is rarely an option.

Reflecting early America, football fields are wide and open, but a stout defense – like challenging terrain – can hinder the most determined advance.

And great teams are united, like the states we call home.

By playing this sport, young athletes learn football’s timeless qualities of leadership, responsibility, perseverance and teamwork.

The passion evoked by football is as timeless as its values of sacrifice and discipline, standing forever firm regardless of society’s swings.

Every year, nearly 3 million children age 6 to 14 take to football fields across America to play the game they love. They may not realize it, but these young athletes are enjoying the benefits of physical exercise while learning life lessons through the sport.

Studies show that being physically active through football lowers body fat, strengthens muscles and increases the likelihood of continuing good health habits later in life.

Football introduces young players to new social groups and to a set of coaches who serve as role models. 

Research shows athletes tend to have higher levels of self-esteem and lower levels of depression.

To the kids, though, the game is about fun, friendships and camaraderie. It’s about achieving success or learning from failure then lining right back up to try again.

Football has captured America’s imagination for a century, but its best days are still ahead.

There’s no better time to be a part of the game than right now.
