While there is always uncertainty since the arrival of COVID-19, youth football in the area is still hopeful for a return in the fall. Three of the four football rec. programs that are part of the Upper Chesapeake Youth Football League [UCYFL] announced that they are holding registration.

There was a statement from Edgemere Rec. Council that registration is taking place, but the season will be delayed.

“The UCYFL is planning for a season start (practices) of 9/1/20, as opposed to the normal Aug. 1 start. Games, divisions, etc. are still being discussed by the UCYFL board and details should be out after the next meeting, which is Aug. 3,” said the statement.

The Stembridge Colts Football in Essex said they hosted registration on Saturday and will hold it again in Wednesday in person at their rec. center.

Jake Nohe, who is with Stembridge Rec. Council, said the program is waiting to see what the future will hold, but is also preparing and hoping for a full season.

“They haven’t given us the full green light. But we can do non contact workouts and hold registration.” Nohe said. “I can’t speak for other programs. But we are fully preparing for a season until the fully stomp on the brakes.”

Middle River Rec. Council announced they started online registration back on July 2.

Perry Hall Rec. Council did not have any updates for the 2020 football season on their website and were unavailable for comment.
