Proud sponsor of our Redskins 12U Cheer team!
Greetings Redskins Family,
It is with great sadness that I announce that the 2020 Tucson Redskins Football and Spirit season has officially been suspended. TYFSF will be posting a league wide announcement in the very near future. I’d like everyone to know that this decision did not come easy, the Federation and every association President made every effort to provide our young athletes a season. In the end, the cons outweighed the pros, and the mandatory protocols would have just been too much to overcome. However you personally feel about this decision please know that the safety of our kids and volunteers was the foremost of concern.
Moving forward, I ask that our focus now becomes our athletes and keeping them engaged during these world changing events. For some, football and cheerleading is about fun with their friends, an outlet to belong to something more, and for others it’s a journey to their big dreams! Whatever their passion, continue to encourage them, work with them, drive them to reach their goals! It’s imperative that during this time we stress to them that in the end it’s just a game and like a loss on Saturday afternoon that although painful, its just a setback, a necessary tool to deal with the adversity that life will always challenge them with, but most importantly that this too shall pass.
To our soon to be 8th graders, TYF is going to be examining plans to possibly grant an additional year if you so choose to play TYF rather than at your future high schools. I would support your return, but would hope that you would rather pursue competing at a higher competitive level. You will forever be Tucson Redskins and I know that you will always represent this association with class and honor! Good Luck to you all!
As far as the business end of this, the Tucson Redskins will begin the process to issue full refunds, this is clearly going to take some time so I ask for your patience. To request your refund please reach out to your business managers and they will gather the necessary information. If you don’t know who your business manager is then please email email@example.com and you’ll receive further direction. For those that have not yet been informed, we as a board decided the best course of action going forward was to issue full refunds rather than roll over registration fees. However, there is the option to donate your registration fees as a tax deduction, if this is an option for you then again please email the above address. Again, I please ask for your patience.
Lastly, I’d like to say again that it has been my incredible honor to serve you and this association through these difficult times, and I hope to see everyone return next season!!
Tucson Redskins President
