2020 Fall BGYFL Season Cancellation

It’s a gloomy Wednesday Raider Nation.
 
This note comes with a heavy heart because I know most of us crossed our fingers and toes and whatever else we could cross to pray for a football season this Fall.
 
Unfortunately the 2020 Fall BGYFL season has officially been cancelled. There will not be Raiders football at our beloved Ruzicka field coming this Fall. This message comes as part of the details shared by our Governor and the IHSA regarding Fall sports in the state of IL.
 
I know you have a ton of questions about registration money, uniforms, equipment etc.
 
The Board will be meeting next week to provide a plan to the parents as to what the options will be in terms of refund or carrying over any payments made . Please understand the cancellation of our season will have a strong financial impact on the Bartlett Raiders and we ask for your patience and support while we work through this transition plan. We will notify everyone in the coming weeks with more details.
 
I’m truly sorry to share this news, having no football this Fall is tough to bear especially with the group I have personally coached since they were 6 years old in flag football was getting ready to start their final varsity season as Bartlett Raiders.
 
Please hold your heads high and let’s stick together through this difficult time.
 
Raider Nation Forever!
 
Respectfully,
Brian Richardson
President
