Here’s a preview of one of the measures being considered to allow us to get back to full contact football while protecting our players from the virus.
Splash shields. You can find out more in the video below. DO NOT go out any buy them just yet from the manufacturer or a sports store. We have them in stock and will make them available to the Mustangs community.

Welcome to August. The schedule below provides ...
🏈 the dates and times for our 5/6 Flag Football Clinics and 7-Year-Old Football clinics scheduled through out the month.
🏈 the 8-13 year old football evaluation schedule for the week of 8/3. Going forward, each coach will communicate their schedule for their age group to you directly via email.
🔥🔥🔥In addition to the football activities, we are planning to have summer cheer clinics scheduled through out August. More information will be shared regarding these Cheer clinics later in the week. 🔥🔥🔥
Finally, we appreciate your continued support and flexibility as we continue to navigate with a bunch of "unknowns" that are out of our control. The biggest of which are:
❓when we will be allowed by NYS to have full-contact practices and games?❓
We are working with our NYS assemblyman and senator, and Town of Oyster Bay officials to try to get a time line and the decision making criteria from the Governor.
❓will we really be allowed to go to Camp Pontiac 8/18-8/20❓
we are still interpreting the recently updated NYS guidelines.
Plus we need to know if we will at full-contact level for it to be worthwhile.
We will send a comprehensive update on Thursday, after our Weds night board meeting, on the above items as well as many other items (such as the "Splash Shields" that we will be implementing for additional player safety related to COVID).
Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

See below on the decision made today by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYPHSAA) to delay fall sports. We do not know what impact this will have on Youth sports, but wanted to share the specifics so you are aware.
The start of the Fall sports season is delayed until a September 21st start date (instead of Aug 24th). “As the state considers reopening, it is unrealistic to believe athletic seasons can start on August 24th as originally scheduled,” said Paul Harrica, NYSPHSAA president, in a press release. “The priority will continue to be on the educational process and a return to learning in the safest way possible.”
To that end, if fall sports such as football and soccer are unable to start on Sept. 21 or cannot finish their seasons because of the pandemic, NYSPHSAA is prepared with a backup plan that will see a series of 10-week seasons start in early 2021. In that model, winter sports would run from Jan. 4 to March 13 in a campaign branded as Season I; fall sports move to March 1 to May 8 in Season II; and, spring sports play from April 5 to June 12 as Season III. Exceptions from the norm in terms of seasonal sport groups will see girls’ tennis participate in Season III, while it’s possible wrestling and competitive cheer could shift from Season I to competing in Season II or Season III because of their “high risk nature.”
The Condensed Season (Backup) plan would entail the following, with the stipulated dates being tentative.
1️⃣ Season I (Winter Sports)
Dates: Jan. 4-Mar. 13 (Week 27-36) 10 Weeks *Note: tentative dates
Sports: basketball (girls & boys), bowling (girls & boys), gymnastics, ice hockey (girls & boys), indoor track & field (girls & boys), skiing (girls & boys), swimming (boys), *wrestling, *competitive cheer.
* Because of high risk nature of wrestling and competitive cheer, sports may have to be moved to Season II or season III.
2️⃣ Season II (Fall Sports)
Dates: Mar. 1-May 8 (Week 35-44) 10 Weeks *Note: tentative dates
Sports: 🏈football🏈, cross country (girls & boys), field hockey, soccer (girls & boys), swimming (girls), volleyball (girls & boys), Unified bowling.
Note: Weather will have an impact upon outdoor sports in some parts of the state in March and potentially early April. Girls Tennis moved to Season III.
3️⃣ Season III (Spring Sports)
Dates: Apr. 5-Jun. 12 (Week 40-49) 10 Weeks *Note: tentative dates
Sports: baseball, softball, golf (girls & boys), lacrosse (girls & boys), tennis (girls & boys), outdoor track & field (girls & boys), Unified basketball.
