MLEJFL Board Update for 2021 Season

Hello Everyone!

The League board will meet again via Zoom at the end of this month. There are hurdles we must overcome in order to proceed with our 2021 season.

Gate fees and concession income are two major means of fundraising for all teams and may be limited this year due to COVID. Without this income, teams have little to no ability to pay for field use, referees, needed safety equipment, etc. To be clear all teams wish to play. But this is a major concern shared by all.

The good news is that as more COVID vaccinations are distributed and infection numbers remain low, COVID restrictions will continue to lift in all three counties in which we play (Mendocino, Lake, and Sonoma). This will make our season much more feasible and manageable.

In addition, as with previous seasons, we will do our very best as volunteers to make adjustments as we navigate through fire season. No matter the reason, we do not wish to put any child, coach, parent or fan at any unnecessary risk. With COVID information changing every few weeks or sometimes by the hour during fire season, this is always a stressful and difficult balancing act.

Please be patient and understanding as we sort through these ongoing challenges. Once possible, please volunteer your time and expertise to get things done. Teams need help from parents and community members, now more than ever. Don’t wait to be asked, please offer your help instead. Perhaps a team needs more board members, perhaps they need help with community fundraising, perhaps they need help on game days. Extra hands make for less work. It will not always be convenient. In fact, it will likely not be convenient at all. But if you find sports important for the develop and well being of our local youth... please volunteer.

We will provide an update to you after our next meeting. If you have any solutions to share, please feel free to respectfully comment below.

Thank you!
