At this time, we have no scheduled events that are impacted by COVID-19. We are hoping to offer football camps in May and June. Please watch for possible changes to upcoming Board meetings. We are still planning to begin our season's registration on April 15. The actual football season is still several months away. You will be refunded if you register, and the medical guidance is to cancel fall sports. The SYFA will be following medical authorities' advice on commencing football activities. For now we want our Association members to take care of themselves, and their loved ones. We'll get back to football when the time is right. --- Zach Brazier, President SYFA

Shakopee Football was featured in a KARE11 story on August 10th about our efforts to make our sport as safe as possible through USA Football's Heads Up coach education and certification program, and by following this program to teach our players the proper tackling techniques designed to keep them safe.
Here is a link to that story on their website.
All potential tackle level coaches, especially travel level coaches, are asked to join the Varsity staff for the coaches' clinic. We will focus on new offense and defense plays. Dates TBD (early June)
