JUNIORS (3-4) UPDATE

Posted by Cumberland Football Boosters, LLC at Sep 4, 2020 2:53AM PDT

Football Families,

It comes with great regret that we are not able have a Junior (3-4) tackle team this year. Due to low numbers, no coach and COVID, we are unable to proceed. We can however offer a flag option. Matt Soule our flag director is able to accept anyone who is willing to play. So your options are:

1. A full refund
2. Our flag program and a partial refund.
3. A donation to the program. (As you can imagine the program is going to take a hit this year in registrations and fundraising. No pressure, but wanted to put it out there)

Please email mailto:info@greelyfootball.org with your decision by 9/10/2020, otherwise you will default to option 1.

2020 SEASON UPDATE

Posted by Cumberland Football Boosters, LLC at Aug 19, 2020 3:49PM PDT

As of today, the 2020 Greely Football season is still on, but numbers are down and the situation is fluid.

Here is a brief status of where we are. Your coach will communicate separately with further details, dates and times:

  • High School: Remote meetings have been in full swing since early July. The MPA has announced the season will begin 9/8 with first games held on 9/18. In person conditioning starts 8/24. Eequipment pickup is this Sunday.
  • GMS: Delayed to 9/21
  • Youth Senior: In person conditioning will start next week 8/24. Game schedules pending.
  • Youth Junior: Due to numbers and lack of a coach, we will either merge with another town or offer a flag option for this season. Decision to be made on 8/21. Please email us at info@greelyfootball.org if you can commit to coaching. You will be supported by the board and the rest of the coaches.
  • Flag2-6: Starting 8/24 at Twin Brooks Greely road side at 6pm. Schedule is pending, but we will be playing Falmouth, Yarmouth and possibly OOB.
  • FlagK-1: Starting 9/12 at 9am at Twin Brooks Greely Road side.

Our board has adopted a set of guidelines for play using recommendations from USA football. Please Read and then print, sign and email this COVID waiver to info@greelyfootball.org. You may also give it to the coach upon first practice. As mentioned, we are not an authoritative organization, so we expect that all parents and players take personal responsibility on following the guidelines so that we are allowed to have a season.

Our registration numbers are down across the board. Even though we know there is interest at the GMS and Senior level, it will not happen unless people register. Please REGISTER. We have the ability to immediately refund payments.

Please stay well and help support the program.

Football Families:

As of today, the 2020 Greely Football season is still on, but numbers are down and the situation is fluid.

Here is a breif status of where we are:

  • High School: Remote meetings have been in full swing since early July. The MPA has announced the season will begin 9/8 with first games held on 9/18. Our AD director is working on the possibility of late August conditioning options.
  • GMS: Same as High School with the exception that we will be playing 8-man football this year. This was the plan prior to COVID.
  • Youth Senior: We are waiting on word from the MSL who is taking the lead from the MPA. More to come.
  • Youth Junior: Due to numbers, we will either merge with another town or offer a flag option for this season. Decision to be made on 8/18.
  • Flag: The Portland Flag League has decided to have internal games only, leaving our club to organize games with surrounding towns. We are working to pull together a timeline, but of all our program offerings, we plan to start earlier than the rest.

Our board is in the process of adopting a set of guidelines for play and will share as soon as possible. However, we are not an authoritative organization, so we expect that all parents and players take personal responsibility on following the guidelines so that we are allowed to have a season.

Our registration numbers are down across the board. Even though we know there is interest at the GMS and Senior level, it will not happen unless people register. Please REGISTER. We have the ability to immediately refund payments.

Please stay well and help support the program.

2020 SEASON

Posted by Cumberland Football Boosters, LLC at Jul 21, 2020 4:55PM PDT

Hello Football Families,

I hope you are all staying safe in these crazy times. As of today, the 2020 Greely Football season is still on and the board is hard at work preparing while at the same time watching the current situation. Our club will take the lead from three organizations:

  • The MPA (Maine Principals Association) for GMS as well as High School which is with Falmouth.
  • The MSL (Maine Sportsmans League) for Youth
  • The Portland Flag League for flag

Some of these organizations like the MPA are waiting on the DOE (Department of Education) to provide a classification on return to school.

Once we here from any of these organization about their decision and guidelines, we will work on a set of our own guidelines that will include input from them as well as USA football, our national partner.

In the meantime, please REGISTER. If the unthinkable happens, we have the ability to immediately refund payments.

Please stay well and help support the team.

JOIN THE TEAM!
