Hello Southbay Sharks family,
Many of you are wondering what the status of the 2020 season is. As of right now we don’t know. We are waiting to hear just like you. As soon as we have information we will send out a update email. We can tell you that we will follow the guidelines given to us by federal, state, and local government along with Pop Warner National and Southern California Conference. Currently the board is operating virtually and moving forward with the hope that we will be having a 2020 season.
Registration is open on our website. Pay your fees and register here.
We are getting equipment ready and sending out helmets this week for reconditioning, and Cheer is having weekly Zoom meetings. We know that finances may be tight right now and this is a stressful and challenging time for you. We want to work with you and make sure the kids get back to sports and some kind of normal.
Be well, be safe, and know we are all in this together.
Your 2020 SBYFC Board
Travis Wyckoff, President
Nikki Vasquez, Player Agent

POP WARNER COVID-19 FAQ
Will we have a season next year?
As of now, we remain hopeful and are still planning for a regular season in 2020 unless directed to postpone by government officials.
What is Pop Warner doing in response to COVID-19?
The health and safety of the Pop Warner community is always at the forefront of our decision-making and never more so than during this global pandemic. We are following the guidance of the CDC and public health officials to help reduce the exposure and transmission of COVID-19 (coronavirus). As such, we are advising all Pop Warner programs to suspend all Spring Flag Football and Year Round Cheer practice and competition and to postpone all administrative meetings and regional scholastic events until we are advised by the CDC that large groups are able to meet without concern.
How will Pop Warner plan to keep participants healthy and safe once activities resume?
We will follow and adhere to all guidelines from the CDC and public health officials on how to handle large number of groups in an athletic setting.
