Hello Cougar Family,
I hope this message finds you all healthy and safe. As you all are aware, over the past few months our quality of life has completely changed from what we have known it to be due to Covid-19.
The Governor recently announced his plans regarding sports in Illinois, moving High School Football as well as Youth Football and Cheerleading to the spring. The goal is no matter when we play let's just let the kids play and be safe while doing it.
For now, due to the State's mandate, we will take a pause for a short period of time and resume workouts soon, sometime before winter. In the process of getting back to full contact we will be working on a 7-on-7 skill positions training. Your child's coaches will be in contact with you with any and all updated information. Please be sure to visit the website for updates at www.glenwoodcougars.org.
With the leagues newly anticipated time frame, the season has not been canceled but will be moved to spring. All registration fees will be moved to the spring season in consideration of the obligations the program must undertake, such as insurance, league fees and other monthly dues to keep the program running.
During this partial break period, this gives us a great opportunity to build and rebrand our program for the better. There will be plenty of opportunities to recruit more participants for all teams, fundraise for better uniforms and equipment, gain more sponsorships, and most of all gain more volunteerism.
I want to personally thank each and every one who continues to support the Glenwood Cougars Football and Cheerleading program. We could not do it without you. We will all get through this time together and come out even stronger, bigger and better. We are Cougar Strong.
Please feel free to send me your suggestions and comments to me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
