Sad New

It is with a heavy heart that we notify you that Cameron Holland, son of our VP and Head Coach of the 7th Grade Badgers, died this morning in a tragic single-vehicle accident. We ask that you pray for Cameron's parents and family in this time of heartache. Cameron was a senior at Ralston Valley H.S. They have already communicated this news to their students and the football community.
We understand that this news may be a duplicate and apologize for any crossover. Still, Cameron and David are well-respected members of our community who have participated with many groups.
We are in contact with David and will continue to communicate needs and service information as we learn of them.

League Update regarding schedule

Good evening,

I know that everyone is anxious to know their schedule for this season. I can assure you that JYFA is working on the schedule. I believe the schedules will be released soon.

Schedules are worked on and set by JYFA. They will release the schedule as soon as possible. There is a lot of work that goes into the schedule. They need to coordinate with area directors, fields, and officials. What I can tell you is that I've seen a rough draft and each Arvada team has four home games and four road games. That is good news.

You should expect to play on Labor day weekend. Please plan accordingly.

Please reframe from sending us emails and texts about the schedule. I promise you will know as soon as the schedule is released and I'll post an announcement notifying everyone.

Thank you,

August 16th, 2019


Please remember that practice is Tuesday Thursday Friday next week same time.
