As the EJFL football season is beginning to take full swing, the EJFL Board and Coaches have been working behind the scenes to put together a set of guidelines that will enable our families to be safe as we ramp up and start play. The list of guidelines may be found on our website at www.ejfl.org.
EJFL is an independent nonprofit organization, not sanctioned by EVSC or IHSAA. The EJFL Board is keeping up to date on our current situation, and will continue to strive to maintain a safe place for our players and families.
In the event the EVSC or IHSAA ceases all sports activities, at that time EJFL will evaluate the options of ceasing competition, or continuing under the required guidelines.
We will keep everyone updated as new information arises. In the meantime, we hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying their summer.
