2020 Football Update

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Sadly due to COVID-19 We will not be having our regularly scheduled Fall 2020 season. It is our goal to run our season starting in December 2020. with games running from January to March. This aligns with what CIF is doing for the High Schools in the area. There are no guarantees and we are not sure what this will look like. The Steelers will look at this as time gets closer and COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. We will be in touch with all those already registered and will post updates here and on our Facebook page.

We hope that you and your families stay safe and Healthy!

Letter from GCYFL President:

Due to the current State restrictions on youth sports, general social distancing requirements and other health precautions, which include the closures of all parks and the inability to rent high school facilities, along with the decision on Monday by CIF to postpone all Fall High School sports until the second semester, January 2021, it is with great regret and disappointment that the GCYFL is officially cancelling our 2020 Fall Football Season. Based on the information at hand, this is the correct decision for the safety and health of our players and families. As December nears, we will review the pandemic conditions and field availability options and research the possibility of hosting a winter Football Season; January thru April. We do not know what this season will look like, but all options are on the table at this time, and we will be thoroughly addressing these options with more scrutiny in November and December. The GCYFL Executive Board and its 20 Chapter Presidents want to thank you for your patience and understanding these past several months. We, as a board, worked hard, and exhaust all options available to us, with the intent to try and make this season come together in a safe and productive environment for all involved.

Bennett Gill

GCYFL President
