Playoff practice fields and times

Playoff practice fields and times

I've attached the practice fields and times for the teams that will be in the playoff next week. I have 16 teams making the post season. There are two time slots 5pm-7pm and 7pm-9pm. All teams must practice at LLR. I do not have a permit for your previous practice field. That permit has expired.

Each team will take half of the field to practice on under the lights. The younger teams are sloted for the earlier times while the older teams are slotted for a later time.

Please work together to get your practices completed. Your team needs to be off the field at the end of your two hour window.

I will work to communicate any field colsures throughout the weeks.

10.26.19 Field/Game Updates

Good Morning,

Here's what we know this morning.

Several peopled worked late into the night to get games rescheduled. Several games that had been canceled due to wet/soggy fields have been moved to tonight. Please check your team connects to see if an when your game has been rescheduled.

If your team connect indicates that you are playing a game today then you are playing that game today at that time. Any updates or cancellations for today's game will be communicated through Team Connect and to your coaches.

There are a handful of games that JYFA has not rescheduled as of yet. They are still working on them. All games were rescheduled based upon the impact on bracketing. There are a few games that will have no impact on the play-off bracketing regardless of the outcome. JYFA may not reschedule those games, and those teams will be bracketed based upon current results.

I do not have any confirmation on any teams who will not make up their game yet. I only want you to know about the possibility. I will continue to communicate changes to you as we go.

Arvada Youth Football will be walking in this year's Harvest Festival. We have a 7th Grade team walking with us this year. However, we wanted to invite any team or individual who would like to participate in this weekends parade. If you are intersted in particpating contact Sumer Schantz for more information. See the preliminary information below.

The parade officially starts at 9am but everyone should be in place no later than 745-8am. Please tell your parents to allow for parking and locating the staging spot on 57th between Cody and Dover Street. Most streets are closed down so it can take some time to navigate your way. Last year some teams met uo at a different location and walked together.

This is a great event to be a part of and a great opportunity to put AYFA on display.
