Hello National Flag Football families,


National Flag Football is closely monitoring the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, which was first reported in the Hubei province in China and has now spread to a growing number of countries, including the United States.  As always, our priority is the safety of our players, families, community, and staff.  


This week, many communities are eliminating large gatherings of people, temporarily shutting down fields, and advising members to stay home.  In support of these initiatives, we have decided to take a moment to evaluate the current situation surrounding flag football. 


This brief pause will allow us time to evaluate and process the current situation more thoroughly and to receive guidance from our community partners, local school districts, and elected government officials. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with frequent updates on the logistics of the upcoming season.  The Spring season is not cancelled; however, we have decided to postpone the season until at least May when Indiana Schools reopen.  


In the meantime, The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is the same as preventing the cold and flu, and include:


1.    Frequently wash your hands with soap and water.


2.    Avoid close contact with people who are sick.


3.    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.


4.    Stay home when you are sick.


5.    Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.


6.    Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with regular household cleaning spray or wipes.


7.    Follow the CDC's  (Center for Disease Control) recommendations for using a facemask.  The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory disease, including Coronavirus.  Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.

Due to the fluidity of this situation, please remain patient as we are making decisions related to individual leagues on a case by case situation.  We will rely highly on the local municipalities' guidance for many of these decisions and will apprise all future changes as soon as we are made aware of them.


We appreciate your participation in the league and will again be as transparent as possible while we work through this Coronavirus Pandemic.
