TYFL cancels season

Staff Report

The Tallassee Youth Football League has decided to cancel its 2020 season. Refunds will be distributed to all who registered.

"We have always put children's safety as our number one consideration and concern," TYFL president Kerry Cole noted in a letter to parents. "This year has beeen very difficult. We have come to the conclusion that we have too many unknown variations in the middle of this pandemic. So with much deliberation, we have decided to cancel the 2020 TYFL season."

Full refunds will go back to parents of players and cheerleaders.

"We have notified East Alabama Youth Football League of our decision and we are looking forward to the 2021 season," Cole added.
