Spartan and AYL Families,
The health and safety of our families is our primary focus and the COVID-19 situation is disrupting life throughout the world.
While there is a lot of uncertainty, we all believe that getting back onto the field is a critical step for our families and the healing process.

Player/Coach testing positive for COVID during the 2020 season.
The AYL Football Policy is:
- Should a Player/Coach test positive they are to be are to be in quarantined for 14 days and return only after a receiving a negative test
- Team Coach will inform team (without naming child) that there was a player/coach that tested positive so Parents can be aware of the potential exposure
- AYL Board will not assume the balance of the players have been exposed since there is no way to determine where the child did get exposed. Thus the team can continue to practice/play as scheduled and does not need to quarantine.
- Parents will continue to be responsible to watch over their child for any symptoms and should stay home if the child is sick.
- Parents always have the right to decide if their child will continue to participate or not
As of July 27,2020, our 2020 fall football season has started. On this date, our refund policy has been initiated. Refunds will not be issued after said date, for ANY REASON.
