The BJFL Fall registration period ends today! Please head to brownsburgfootball.com to register!
Please register with confidence! We take the kids' safety very seriously. Rather than create a Covid-19 plan internally, BJFL felt it would be best to follow all IHSAA and BCSC guidelines. Indiana school guidelines are derived from the "Covid-19 Health and Safety Re-entry Guidance" put together by the Indiana Department of Health and the Indiana Department of Education. These organizations are better suited to generate this game plan.
As you all know, this is an evolving situation and we feel it is best to follow the most up-to-date guidelines. We expect to have the exact plan for precautionary measures as well as in-season protocols as IHSAA and BHS get back to work over the next week. We pushed league activity back just for this purpose. BJFL is positioned to have the time to absorb the plan passed down, post for parents to read and educate our coaches and board members prior to the season. Some of the precautions are common sense in today's environment, but points below give an example of some of our preventative measures.
Check and document player health before every league function
Coaches and board members to wear masks
Player handwashing and sanitizing enforced by coaches/board
Player contact limited to practice and gameplay; no handshakes pre or post game
Concession stand items limited to prepackaged goods
Social distancing, hand-washing and masks encouraged for all family members and fans
Player safety has always been our number one concern and that is no different in these unique times. With regard to registration fees, our payment plans extend to September 1st. If we have to cancel for Covid related reasons, a refund will be given.
We appreciate you guys and look forward to kicking off the football season! Details on Coach Hart's FREE CAMP will be going out in the next day or so. You must be registered for fall football to attend! Be on the look out and don't forget to REGISTER TODAY!

Registration for the 2020 fall football season is now open! Use the orange "Register Now" button in the upper right corner of the website (http://brownsburgfootball.com/) and select the appropriate league, based on grade/age. If you are new to the league please register yourself as a Parent/Guardian first then register your player in the correct division.
We have made some modifications to the 2020 season. See below:
BJFL felt it was appropriate to follow the IHSAA restrictions. There will be no league activity before July 1st.
Practices and games will be pushed back two weeks, with games starting the weekend of August 15th.
Coach Hart's camp will now be July 6th and 8th. No pads. (Those 5th/6th graders wanting to be evaluated for the Junior Bulldogs team will be in full pads. More info to come.)
We plan to have our main equipment distribution at this camp, please plan accordingly. An additional equipment issue will be scheduled for mid to late July, more info will be sent when available.
We are continuing to observe this evolving situation and are actively developing prototcols to ensure the safety of our kids and families once our league activities kick off.
If you plan to have your child play fall football, please register now. The early registrations help our planning tremendously. Our goal is to have the same numbers we have always had or even more, but in the event numbers are down at certain ages, combining grades could be an option. Also, as a reminder, your PreK kids can play flag football! Spread the word and get those 4 and 5 year olds into football!
Regarding payment, we have deferred the initial deposit to June 1st. You would then have the opportunity to pay on a payment plan through September 1st. We recognize some families are in a tough spot currently and want all kids to have the best shot at getting back out on the football field and getting back to normal.
Do not hesitate to reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
Our Fall registration is open! While we are still currently under some unique restrictions, we are preparing to play fall football as normal. As of right now, we have not changed our standard timeline which is a mid July start for practices and the first weekend of August for games.
We acknowledge things can change quickly though, so we do have some contingency plans in place. Should gathering guidelines or access to school grounds force us to push back start dates, we will alert parents ASAP. Also, should our numbers be down, we could decide to combine grades or add outside teams to our schedule. We want to stress that these are contingency options. We are planning for a standard season. Should any contingency changes not work for you, email us and we would be happy to resolve the situation at that time.
Beyond the health aspect of this pandemic, BJFL understands that many parents have been out of work for weeks. We are not asking for a deposit on registrations at this time. We encourage families to register right away to help us with planning, but our payment plan will start June 1 and continue through September 1. Head to our website and start your registration, but don't continue to the "pay now" option. We will send out a reminder to begin submitting payments on June 1st. If you'd like to go ahead and pay a portion or in full, that option is there as well. There is a drop down on the payment screen that will allow you to select what you'd like to pay.
Finally, same as recent years, a registration will include a free camp hosted by Coach Hart and the BHS staff. We are still finalizing dates on this camp. Please head to brownsburgfootball.com to register now!
If any questions, feel free to reply to this email or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hopefully we are turning a corner with this Covid-19 pandemic. We wish the best to you and your families during these extraordinary circumstances. Like many organizations around the world, BJFL is putting together contingency plans for the rest of 2020. We want to be ready to provide youth football whenever and however we are able to do so. Fundraising is a big part of our not-for-profit organization. With our entire community impacted, many of our avenues for donations and sponsorships have gone away. A new way to donate is through our Amazon Smile link. While you might not have extra cash, many of you likely continue to order products from Amazon. The link below will allow BJFL to receive money back on eligible items and we ask that you give it a try.
Additionally, we have put a 'Donate to BJFL' button on our website. If you or your business is lucky enough to still be in position to help us out, it is always appreciated. We anticipate an uptick in families needing assistance to play this year and this money will give all kids a chance to play football. Head to http://www.brownsburgfootball.com/ to check it out.
Finally, we plan to launch our fall registration at the end of this week. While we anticipate a league very comparable to past seasons, we will relay some of our contingency possibilities and modified payment structures.
